Spend a Day in the Life of Wiz Khalifa

We spent the day with the rapper ahead of the recent appearance at Governors Ball.

Wiz Khalifa has got hits—the types of songs whose choruses get stuck in your head for days on end, and there's nothing you can do about it. Tracks like "Black and Yellow" and the enduringly popular "See You Again," are confirmed earworms. In this video, sponsored by Gap, we follow the rapper for the day at Governors Ball, ahead of his headlining set, and hear him talk about the evolution of his live performance. "I've always been the type that took pride in my performance," He says. "I just watch the greats… Freddie Mercury's one of my favorite performers, Rick James…you know, just like really eccentric and fun people." Playing multiple festivals every weekend, it's clear he doesn't get tired seeing fans sing along to "See You Again" every time he plays it. "I want you to go to sleep and hear that itch in the back of your mind, and wake up and say 'what the fuck was that." Check out Wiz do his thing at the top of the page.
