Wiz Khalifa, who recently released his third album Blacc Hollywood is on cover 2 (check out Jeezy on cover 1 here) of The Source magazine‘s 2014 Power 30/SOURCE360 issue which should be hitting news stands soon. Here’s an excerpt from the issue.
On his musical inspirations:
I remember like Bob Marley, he listened to a lot of Prince, he really listened to everything my dad’s music was like a wide range, all the hits all the classics. He still puts me onto stuff, I mean when I was doing Kush & Orange Juice the reason I did David Ruffin for the cover was because of my dad. I mean I knew The Temptations, everyone knows The Temptations but my dad had really showed me David Ruffin’s solo career, and the stuff he was doing, we sat down and we listened to those records and it was just like a spiritual thing, and I was able to like put that on to the world as well.
