Wiz Khalifa, MTV’s “Hottest Breakthrough Artist Of The Year” signed with Atlantic under Rostrum Records. Rick Ross wanted to sign him to his label, but Wiz Khalifa chose a different route.
He opened up to his Taylor Gang following during the “RapFive Live” broadcast on Friday (July 30). The Pittsburgh MC addressed everything from his relationship with Rick Ross to his new major-label deal to living at home with moms.
On the subject of possibly inking a deal with his other favorite rapper and fellow “RapFix Live” alum, Rick Ross, the P-Town MC was flattered that the Miami Bawse had considered bringing him into the Maybach Music fold.
“It’s a huge honor for him to even extend a hand like that,” Wiz said after seeing a video of Ross asking what it would take for Khalifa to sign to his label. “Even if it ain’t no paperwork between me and Ross, it’s gonna be work done between me and Ross.”
Khalifa did have news about his record label home and confirmed that he is signing a deal with Atlantic Records. “I wanted to make sure that I had records that I was comfortable with before I went to any label or any situation.”
