Wiz Khalifa explains why Drake was left off his “Work Hard, Play Hard” remix, and talks about hoping to collaborate with Nas in the future.
Wiz Khalifa showed us how much clout he has in hip hop now by announcing two massive features on the remix for â€œWork Hard, Play Hardâ€ in the form of Lil Wayne and Drake.Â Although Drake was replaced by another notable name, Wiz discusses why he did not include Drizzyâ€™s verse, and even mentions he would like to collaborate with Nas.
The Taylor Gang rapper looks up to the legendary NY rapper, and says he would welcome a chance at collaborating with Nas.Â The Pittsburgh rapper mentions that not many are on Nasâ€™ level lyrically saying in an interview with Montreality, via HHDX, â€œI want to get in the studio with Nas.Â That would be cool. I think just lyrically that would take me to another level. I just been listening to a lot of his old CDâ€™s.â€ In addition to his classic LPs, Wiz mentions that even presently not many rappers can bring the intensity Nas does, â€œMusically, I feel like heâ€™s in the zone that a lot of people donâ€™t even really, really understand. So I wanna do some shit with Nas.â€
While Drake was noticeably absent from the â€œWork Hard, Play Hardâ€ remix, Wiz was able to get Young Jeezy on the track.Â Some were disappointed, and now the Taylor Gang front man explains that it just didnâ€™t come together, â€œHe boofed me man. He was supposed to do his verse and he ainâ€™t do it so we had to put it out, but it ainâ€™t no love lost.â€ Khalifa says this is not rare, and actually happens frequently, â€œPeople get that done all the time in the industry, but yeah I got boofed.â€
The single will be featured on Wiz Khalifaâ€™s sophomore studio effort which has been delayed and is now slated for a December 4th release.
