Wiz Khalifa Speaks On Dropping A Mixtape Vs Album & Not Being A New Artist
In a recent appearance on Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club, Wiz Khalifa spoke on his newly-released 28 Grams mixtape He addressed why he felt it would be better for him to drop a mixtape instead of a studio album. Wiz also spoke about his extensive catalog of music and how he is not a new artist.
“I’mma put my album out later,” Wiz Khalifa said. “I just wanted to really own the summer. And a great song on a mixtape will definitely do that…That’s why I said I know what I’m doing. I’ve made styles before when I was 19. You know what I mean? I just kinda like relaxed and let them go. So, when I go back and use autotune or if I sing a whole song or something like that—Them niggas got that from me anyway. So, that’s just me doing me, having fun. Just experimenting and really being free with your words and stuff like that. Everybody heard Star Power. Everybody heard Flight School. Everybody heard Prince Of The City 2. You niggas know what it is. Don’t let Twitter fans and shit like that confuse you. Like ‘Oh Wiz is this and Wiz is that.’ You can go back and do your homework and listen. That explains everything.”
“People don’t understand catalog,” he added. “There’s not many artists with 10 mixtapes and albums and stuff like that that you could listen to. Everybody’s brand new. So, you can’t really like group me up with that whole brand new stigma. I do everything. I been doing it.”
