A stoner’s dream come true. Wiz Khalifa got to light one up with cartoon hero Leonardo of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The costumed character sat down with Wiz during his recent appearance on Skee TV. Not only did the leader of the Turtles bring Wiz a blunt but he came bearing pizza for the afterwards munchies.
“Yo Leo! Whattup!” said Wiz. “Leo I’mma teach you something. You gotta brown it first,” the rapper advised the turtle on proper smoking technique. “Yay Leo!” he shouted. The rapper said he was a big Ninja Turtles fan because their lifestyle of pizza, skateboarding and karate was awesome. “They just do amazing things. Of course, that who I want to be when I grow up.”
On the same sit down, Wiz spoke about his new album Blacc Hollywood, which features a collaboration from Adele. Wiz explained his album’s title. “The Hollywood part, of course, is like the success, the glitz, the glamour, the fun stuff,” said Wiz. “And the Blacc is where we come from—not Pittsburgh the ‘hood, but Pittsburgh party, drinking at a very young age, tearing stuff up, staying up too late. It’s a lot of fun and it’s a lot of attitude.”
