With The Weeknd set to perform his first live show in New York City this evening, it’s only right to ask about the working relationship the often illusive singer has with Wiz Khalifa. While in the Big Apple promoting his new single, Hip Hop Wired’s Kazeem Famuyide spoke with Wiz on the upcoming Taylor Gang x XO collaboration that’ll appear on Khalifa’s O.N.I.F.C album due this August.

“It’s good you know, because he’s a trippy dude. Actually, he reaches out to me and he calls me and he is really excited about it. He sent it to me and we got it done, and he follows up on it. It’s really away from the character people know him for, so with me and him and Juicy too, we work really well together. And we’ve got a lot of stuff that people are going to hear from.”

“I think people will definitely hear the difference. Taylor Allderdice was a lot of fun, and O.N.I.F.C. is a lot more fun. The stuff that people wanted to pay for and was worth of them going into their pockets. And I feel like these songs on O.N.I.F.C. are more than worthy of that, so I’m happy.”
