Wiz Khalifa Holding Off On Mixtapes, Speaks On Snoop Dogg Film

The Taylor Gang leader explains that he's falling back from releasing new music so he can focus on his tour and movie with Tha Doggfather.

Wiz Khalifa stopped by Billboard.com for a live interview earlier today, discussing his upcoming film with Snoop Dogg and why he’s falling back from mixtapes for a while. 

During the interview, the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native spoke on his upcoming stoner comedy High School, co-starring Snoop Dogg and featuring an original collaborative soundtrack.

“It’s a great buddy film. Snoop’s a cool guy in school and I’m kind of like the nerd. I cover up my tattoos and everything,” he said. “I didn’t take it all the way there, but my character, you can really see what I’m going through. But it’s tight. You get to see both of us change and learn a lot and it’s good for both crowds. It’s not just a one-sided movie.” 

The two don’t have a defintive release date for the film, but they’ve been working on their joint LP in Snoop Dogg’s home and in the studio. “It’s really just me and Snoop going back and forth,” he said. “We’re just doing things that people aren’t doing these days.”

With his debut album Rolling Papers in stores, Wiz is holding off on putting out any new mixtapes or projects in the near future so he can focus on the movie and his upcoming tour. “A lot of visuals for people. The movie thing is really, really big right now, and just trying to expand my brand. Get more people onto what I’m doing, because it’s still new to a lot of people,” he said. “I’m always recording new music. I was in the studio with Big Sean last night. I think for a minute, I think I’m going to have people be satisfied with features and hold out on projects until it’s time.”
