Two of hip-hop’s biggest stars stop by in tonight’s episode of “MTV’s Hip Hop POV” (airing at midnight ET). Fresh off the Coachella stage, Wiz Khalifa joins the cast and addresses everything from his new album, O.N.I.F.C., touring with Mac Miller and being engaged to model (and Kanye West’s ex) Amber Rose.
Host Charlamagne Tha God pointedly asks him about being romantically linked to a presumed “industry hoe,” but Wiz honestly says “I like to just meet people” and he doesn’t give into preconceived notions. The good-humored rapper also recounts that he loved sharing the stage with the hologram of Tupac Shakur at Coachella but due to his “elevated state,” he forgot the deceased Shakur was just a hologram. “I got so high I forgot!” says Wiz.
High-energy rapper Waka Flocka also hits the stage for a rowdy rendition of “Round of Applause.” Fans will also get up close and personal with G.O.O.D. Music super producer Hit-Boy in the studio and Jay-Z’s newest protege Rita Ora at the tattoo parlor.
Quickly becoming television’s premier stop for hip-hop news and exclusives, last week’s episode of “MTV’s Hip Hop POV” tackled Coachella and Nicki Minaj leaving Twitter while Australian rapper Iggy Azalea stopped by to chat about working with T.I., surprised about being a XXL Freshman, and her album The New Classic.
