Wiz Khalifa determined to throw his hat into the ring of the endless debate about Hip Hop’s era hole. The Taylor Gang boss weighed in on the conflict between outdated and new in an Instagram video posted on Wednesday afternoon (December 19).
“A lot of these G.O.A.T.S. — these legends that we all love so much — when y’all were like 19, 20, 21, your parents probably thought your music was trash as well,” he mentioned. “[Their parents] weren’t really trying to get in the studio and compete. The crazy thing is a lot of the G.O.A.T.s and legends now, they have kids that are 16, 17, all the way to 21, and this is the music that they enjoy.”
He continued, “And the craziest thing about it is it’s not a competition. This is art. A lot of people wanna talk about money, but this is art and art is progressive. Art moves forward, so a lot of people should just enjoy the artisticness of it as opposed to trying to compete and put money into it. And just let people move forward and have as much fun as possible [and] create. That’s what we really got into this for, so that’s my opinion.”
