Wiz Khalifa hangs out with Jen De Leon backstage at SKEE Live and shares the inspiration behind the title to his upcoming album, Blacc Hollywood. With Leonardo from the Ninja Turtles by his side, Khalifa also elaborated on the differences between his idea of Blacc Hollywood and regular Hollywood.
Wiz Khalifa takes the better late than never approach and delivers his latest music video for “The Plan” featuring Juicy J. It’s all about living in the lap of luxury and celebrating success in Khalifa’s new visual which finds both artists performing to the camera from a mansion. With plenty of random beauties in the mix and a butler on deck, the Taylor Gang rappers pour up some champagne and fine greenery while reminiscing on their humble beginnings. “The Plan” is featured on Wiz Khalifa’s O.N.I.F.C. album.
R&B singer and Taylor Gang signee, Courtney Noelle, announces her upcoming Love On The Run mixtape and unveils the accompanying artwork. After working alongside Wiz Khalifa and contributing to several past releases such as his recent O.N.I.F.C. LP, the singer finally inked a deal last year with his rising Taylor Gang imprint. Love On The Run is set to drop soon and will serve as Noelle’s debut solo project on the label and most likely will boast features from other in-house talent. Fans can catch the rising singer currently on the road for Wiz’s Under The Influence of Music Tour touring with heavy hitters A$AP Rocky, Trinidad James, B.O.B. and Joey Bada$$ and Pro Era.
Wiz Khalifa invites fellow Taylor Gang artist, Tuki Carter, to hit the stage and join him for a performance of their collaborative track “Rise Above” off Wiz’s O.N.I.F.C. album. Watch as Khalifa and Carter impressively kick their respective lyrics back and forth, put on a solid performance and remind the crowd that they stay rising above the haters to get the cash.
Wiz Khalfia slows things down and gets real with his performance of “The Plan” off his O.N.I.F.C. album and gets the crowd going again with his remix of Rocko’s street hit “U.O.E.N.O.”. Take a look as the Taylor Gang head honcho and headliner for the Under The Influence of Music Tour had the fans in Irvine, Calif. vibin’ out and jumping out their seats with excitement.
Director Frank Paladino and Atlantic Records take you behind the scenes of Wiz Khalifa’s latest music video for “Paperbond” off his O.N.I.F.C. album. Follow along as shooting begins in Hawthorne, Calif. at the Uvair Jet Center and eventually transitions over to an old bank in Los Angeles. Go behind the lens with Wiz and the rest of the Taylor Gang crew as they put it work and make it happen.
I can’t even lie. Seeing just how hyped the venue was and how great of a show Juicy put on for the crowd has me a little salty I wasn’t able to attend and cover the event. Originally, I was suppose to be delivering to all of you some exclusive content for the site, however, I got jammed up at the door by House of Blues employees and security. I was told though I had access to the show, I wouldn’t be allowed to shoot any video due to “venue policy”. In the clip above, that’s clearly a video camera on stage filming Juicy and the epic moment that took place with Wiz Khalifa hitting the stage to perform “The Plan” off his O.N.I.F.C. album. Perhaps I was not worthy enough to professionally cover the event for unknown reasons? Whatever.
Still, check out some cool visuals of Juicy J closing out his Stay Trippy tour and performing “The Plan” with Wiz live in Hollywood. There is also a cameo from Big Sean who apparently was in attendance along with the likes of Miley Cyrus and others. Take a look at some backstage footage of the gang blowing smoke and celebrating another successful sold out show to cap things off with.
