Wiz Khalifa on new album 'Multiverse,' Vinyl Verse tour, being a 'walking viral moment' & more!

#OurGenerationMusic #WizKhalifa #OGM

Throughout his decade-plus run in the game, Wiz Khalifa has broken the mold for what artists can and can’t be. If you’ve paid any attention to Khalifa’s moves in recent years, you’d know that the legendary Pittsburgh emcee has expanded his roots beyond 'Rolling Papers' in the booth. As an avid UFC lover, entrepreneur and father, it’s more than just the music for Wiz — who’s latest ventures have taken him to greater heights ahead of his new album 'Multiverse.' While the new record is slated for release on July 29, Wiz is constantly finding new inspirations to feed his passions. Amid a tight training regiment, endless recording sessions and getting his new psychedelic company 'MisterCaps' off the ground, Wiz embodies the hustler mindset in every regard — always striving to be the "that leader and that example that you’re looking for." "If you’re inspired by someone, take all the best sides of that person and add it to yourself — be what you want to be," he said. "You’re your biggest inspiration. If you’re doing the best for yourself, people will follow you and ultimately turn into their best selves. Be a good person and work hard." Sitting down with OGM host Hakeem Rowe, Wiz spoke on his upcoming album, his 'Vinyl Verse' tour with Logic, when he realized he was a business, the legendary company he keeps and much more in this special Our Generation Music exclusive.
