Wiz Khalifa has long been known for his love and support of marijuana, which has translated to him being considered “stoner rap” by some. However, that’s not a label he wants.
In a recent interview with HardknockTV, the rap star revealed that he doesn’t want to be solely known as a “weed head” rapper. And, when he begins to venture beyond music, he believes the label will start to peel off.
“I was just talking with one of my homies yesterday, I kind of want to break the stigma of everything I do is like a ‘stoner this’ or a ‘weed head’ that,” Wiz explained. “That’s what I built my marketing and my brand on, but at the end of the day, everyone who is successful in film or in music gets high and they don’t look at them as the stoner.
“Once I get past that point, I think I’ll make more movies, so to people it doesn’t look forced or look like I’m trying to change lanes or change gears. It’ll just be people ready for me to do that anyway.”
