Wiz Khalifa and his bride-to-be Amber Rose are writing one heck of a love story right before our eyes. On Thursday (September 6), the famed hip-hop duo took to the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards to announce that they are expecting their very first child come. In contrast to their comfy but casual white attire at last year’s ceremony, Khalifa and Rose were sleek and sexy in black as they shared the big news with Sway.

Wiz Khalifa On Fame, Love and Being A Rock Star

Wiz-Khalifa585

These days Cameron Wiz Khalifa”  Thomaz, the rapper behind platinum hits “Black and Yellow” and “Roll Up,” is dealing with the highs and lows of superstardom.

BET honored Wiz with nine nominations for their upcoming Hip-Hop Awards show, matched only by Kanye West (and surpassed by Lil Wayne’s seemingly absurd 18 nods).

Add to that the rapper’s venture into cinema with the stoner movie “High School” – which he’s making with his idol-turned-mentor, Snoop Dogg – and it seems like he can’t lose. Or can he?

A marijuana enthusiast, Wiz Khalifa was recently cleared of a felony drug trafficking count. In another odd twist, while visiting the Barney’s department store in Beverly Hills over the summer with girlfriend Amber Rose and their families, he was mistaken for a thief.

(Speaking of Rose, Wiz Khalifa’s public displays of affection with the former girlfriend of Kanye West have brought on the ire of fans who seem to think he loses credibility with every photographed hug.)

In this interview with CNN, Wiz opens up on his love for Amber, the best advice he gets from Snoop, why he’s cool with being called a “rock star” and all of the responsibility that comes with the title.

CNN: Where does the name Wiz Khalifa come from?

Wiz Khalifa: The name “Wiz” comes from me being the youngest dude in my age group of people that I hung out with. I was pretty good at anything I tried to do, so they would call me a young wiz. Khalifa is Arabic, it means successor/leader/shining light, and my granddaddy gave me that name. He’s actually Muslim and just saw my path, what I was doing and how hard I was working, and he gave me that name and I just put the two together.

CNN: You’ve been referred to as a “rock star.” Do you feel you’ve reached that status?

WK: It’s great because it just puts me in a different realm of how people see me. Of course I do rap music and I’m a hip-hop artist, but as an individual, as a personality and what I give to the people – it’s that perspective. I see myself as like the lead singer of a band or something [laughs]. When I go out there I’m a real performer, so I’m cool with [being called that].

CNN: You’re often compared to Snoop Dogg

WK: Just because of the vibe. Snoop is the boss dog, you know what I’m saying, and I’m a young boss so they see where I’m going with it. And even Snoop fully embraces me and gives me more [ammunition] for them to call me “young Snoop.” It’s a blessing, it’s a great thing, because I’ve always been a fan and everything that he brings is positive.

CNN: What life lessons did you learn from Snoop?

WK: He always just tells me to keep focused, to stay working when everybody’s not working. When people feel like they don’t have to work that’s when you’re supposed to be on your job. And always give back.

CNN: Let’s talk love and Amber Rose. Rappers aren’t supposed to be all lovey-dovey – what’s that feel like?

WK: It’s awesome to have that support and to have that base. It gives me structure, it gives me discipline and it helps me work on other stuff that’s much more important. I feel like everybody has some person that’s out there for them. If you tap into that and take advantage of it and hold it close and treat it like what it is, that’s when you’ll get – fully – out of it what you’re supposed to.

CNN: Let’s talk about your love for weed. How much are you spending these days? Give us a figure.

WK: Oh nah, there’s no figure, man. It varies [laughs].

CNN: Would you see your financial habits or relationship with the drug change if it was ever legalized?

WK: It would be the same.

CNN: Really?

WK: Yeah, because it’s not about being illegal and it’s not about it being bad or anything like that, it’s about what makes me happy and what I know is not too dangerous. It’s a huge umbrella – doctors smoke weed, old ladies smoke weed, soccer moms, players, coaches – everybody smokes weed. I think it’s a common ground, it’s a peaceful ground.

CNN: You’re recognized more often now, but at a Barney’s store you were confused for a thief while shopping with your mom and Amber. Did that make you angry?

WK: It’s cool because I never have any expectations. I don’t expect to get the red carpet rolled out. Other people expect me to get [Hollywood]. That situation kind of blew up and Barney’s ended up sending me an email being like, “We apologize! Any time you come to the store…” It ended up working out in my favor anyway, by not blowing up and by just remaining who I am and being cool. That doesn’t bother me at all. The only time I would lose is if I give up who I am. As long as I stand up for me and what I believe in, I’ll be straight.

CNN: You started taking music seriously at 14. How has Cameron grown up as a person since then?

WK: I see myself [as] pretty cool. I was a cool 14-year-old, too. I always envisioned myself being a rapper and being in the game and having success, but you never know what it feels like or how you’re going to be when you’re there…Like from it being a dream and from just watching it on TV and seeing people’s tours to now having my own tour, having my own buses, having my own production. I shake the hands of all of my production guys my lighting guys, and I’m like, “Yo, you’re doing a great job!” It’s just knowing, the knowledge. I’m really, really happy with I’ve learned.

Nicki Minaj ‘Massive Attack’ (VIDEO)

Posted: Thursday – April 1, 2010

On the set of her video for “Massive Attack,” Nicki Minaj said she wanted to dedicate the production to her musical family, especially the head of the squad, Lil Wayne.

“I wanna say shout-out to my baby Wayne, because he’s not here,” Minaj said, sitting in the video’s pink Lambo a couple of weeks ago. “This means the world to me, because Wayne was one of the first people that believed in me. He’s not here to see my first video. But he’s here in spirit, obviously. I wanna tell him, ‘I love you very much. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me thus far.’ And to my whole team, Young Money, I love you guys. This is for Wayne and this is for my whole team. Young Money/ Cash Money, we in the building.”

“Massive Attack” dropped earlier this week, and the video lands everywhere on Wednesday night (March 31).

“I brought my BFF Amber Rose out here,” Nicki said on the set earlier this month. “This is a massive attack. We shot the helicopter scene. Obviously, I had to have a hot-pink Lamborghini. We’re having fun in the car, and we see a freakin’ helicopter chase us. So we get on the walkie-talkie, like, ‘Mayday! Mayday!’ It’s really fashion and beauty shots, and we’re acting like we’re doing something important.

“We did a mud scene that’s gonna be spectacular,” she added. “We did a crawling forest scene that was dope. That was shot at night. It’s just beautiful. The clothes, the ambience, it’s really, really pretty. All the girls that like to play dress-up, they’re gonna love this one. We wanted to make it pretty in the dirt. We wanted to have a very crazy contrast. I didn’t want to do everything clean. I like the dirt. All that pink stuff looks even prettier in the dirt.”

“It doesn’t get much bigger than this,” a shirtless Sean Garrett, who collaborated on the track, said on the set. “This is the year we start to take off and take it to another level. ‘Massive Attack,’ man, we ain’t playing no games. We had to deliver something incredibly huge for Nicki, because as you know, her personality is enormous and the records that she’s been on in the past have been very, very hot, but very street records.”

“We wanted to give her something that was global,” he continued. “We wanted to give her something that was urban; we wanted to give her something that was mainstream pop, you know what I mean, that the world could get a chance to see her out on this pedestal. And of course, you know, I had to come along with her, because I’ve got an album dropping soon.”

“I’m glad she’s a part of us, part of our team,” the Birdman said on set, adding that as Nicki continues to blow up, the door will open for more of her female peers.

“You gotta be solid built for this, if you want it for a long time,” Birdman said. “I think you will see more women now, though. I think it’s needed. The women bring a different vibe to hip-hop. I think it’s needed; women bring more women.”

Nicki is still working on her debut album, which has no release date or title as of yet.

Kanye West Gives Back At Homeless Shelter

Posted: Monday – December 28, 2009

Christmas is deemed as a time for cheer and generosity and clearly rapper Kanye West feels the sentiment.

Alongside Amber Rose, the two decided to give back for the holidays and volunteers for the Los Angles Mission to help the homeless on Saturday.

Fully appreciative of what he has come to garner with his success, the rapper assisted in serving lunches to those in need.

“It’s just important [to give back] when you’re very blessed,” said West, according to TheBoomBox.com.

Los Angles Mission, a non-profit organization, has dedicated itself to providing aid for those without homes. Services include presenting food and offering employment. They are also available to further aid those that might be dealing with substance abuse as they offer a platform to seek rehabilitation.

Services have been provided to the city’s “Skid Row” district for over 70 years now.

“[It's nice to spread your blessing and take time out, especially during the holidays, to appreciate people who never get that appreciation. It makes me feel really good to come out here with my family and I just thank ya'll [the Los Angeles Mission] for allowing us to be a part of this.”
