Wiz Khalifa: "Nicki Minaj Is Awesome"
EXCLUSIVE | Wiz tells MTV.co.uk he would "absolutely" work with the star...
When asked his opinion on Minaj, Wiz confessed: "She’s awesome. She’s a hard worker, she makes really good music and she’s really diverse which is important – not only in hip-hop but just in music in general."
The 23-year old continued: "You gotta be able to switch it up and you gotta be able to still be you and that’s what she’s able to do. I really respect that about her."
After confessing that he would "absolutely" want to hit the studio with Nicki, we just had to ask Khalifa what music he can see himself and Minaj making, to which he replied: "Whatever we feel like that day. I like to be open when it comes to music."
He explained: "When I get in the studio, I don’t really have anything in mind, I just hear stuff and then we make it happen from there."
Wiz also addressed reports that he turned down an offer to tour with Minaj's Young Money label mate, Drake, with the star stating he wanted to establish himself as his own artist instead of hitting the road with Drizzy.
Khalifa defended his decision, telling us: "It was just because I had my own tour that I was about to go on and my whole career has been built off just me, a standing individual."
The Roll Up rapper added: "I mean, I’m cool with Drake – that’s my homie, but for me, I figured that I would just rather build my own identity so I could be a star as big as Drake, and it ended up working out for me, so I’m kinda glad I did it."
