Before he kicks off his Rolling Papers U.S. tour with a main stage performance at Bonnaroo this Saturday (June 11), Wiz Khalifa stopped by the Billboard offices for a live Q&A on Billboard.com sponsored by MSN. The Pittsburgh rapper answered fan questions about his next “Rolling Papers” single, his relationship with Amber Rose, and “High School,” the movie he’s currently filming with hip-hop elder statesman Snoop Dogg.
“It’s a great buddy film. It’s just about – Snoop’s the cool guy in school and I’m kind of the nerd,” Khalifa tells Billboard.com editorial assistant Jason Lipshutz about the film. The 23-year-old rapper, who will continue filming “High School” later this week, also confirmed that he and Snoop are recording a full soundtrack to the album: “We’ve got ten songs already and we’re using all ten of them… We’re just doing things that people aren’t doing these days,” says Khalifa.
Meanwhile, Khalifa will follow breakout single “Black and Yellow” and current hit “Roll Up” with “No Sleep,” which already debuted at No. 6 of the Hot 100 without radio play in April before sliding off the chart a month later. The rapper plans to officially roll out the song as a single soon, with a proper music video in place. “We want to get the fans behind it and we just want to make it an experience, not something that just comes and goes,” says Khalifa.
Khalifa also responded to fan questions about his girlfriend, model Amber Rose: when asked what was his favorite thing about dating her, the rapper simply replied, “Everything.” He also quieted any rumors of friction between himself and Kanye West, who previously dated Rose. “There’s never been any problems between me and him,” says Khalifa. I’ve never meet him so I can’t have any problems with anyone I’ve never met.”
