Rick Ross Explains Courting Wiz Khalifa With Record Deal
Wiz Khalifa may have declined Rick Ross' invitation to join Maybach Music but the faltered business deal hasn't affected their friendship. Ross still has respect for the Pittsburgh, Penn. native, who dropped verses on Rozay's remix to 'Super High' earlier this summer.
"That's my homie," Ross told The BoomBox. "I just talked to him the other day. Wiz to me, his flow, he's like that new Snoop Dogg to me. Dude's just so humble and when you meet him he's just a down to earth cool dude. He just gets in the studio and does his business so I wanted to really intensify his situation. I just put it out there that I would love for him to be a great edition at Maybach Music."
Ross isn't the only big name artists that Khalifa has turned down. The 23-year-old, known for his relaxed flow and love of marijuana, rejected Drake's offer to join him on his upcoming Light Dreams and Nightmares tour so that he can focus on his own Waken Baken tour instead. Opting to do things on his own isn't a bad deal for Khalifa as his fan base continues to grow. After posting the link to download his 'Kush & OJ' mixtape to his over 300,000 Twitter followers it became the No. 6 trending topic on the social networking site. Khalifa is said to be releasing his third full-length album next year.
