“I Think About My Safety First”
Wiz Khalifa explains the reason behind wearing less jewelry now.
Wearing a lot of jewelry has been the trend in recent years, but now after the recent deaths in hip-hop, more and more rappers choose to wear less expensive items in the public. Wiz Khalifa recently caught up with DJ Whoo Kid on his “WHOO’s House Podcast”, where the Taylor Gang boss explains why he stopped wearing a lot of jewelry.
“You grow out of that sh*t and you place value in other things at certain points. It’s cool to have that mind frame as well or it’s cool to have the little joint too. You don’t have to have the biggest, craziest situation going on,” he said. “And with all of these murders and sh*t going on, it’s inviting f**king energy that you don’t really need. And people look at you like they get excited when they see that type of sh*t.”
He continued, “Me, I’m the type of person that thinks about my safety first. So if I could walk into a room and not excite those people who are gonna feel like that when they see those things, I’ll do you the favor because I don’t want anything to happen to you, I don’t want anything to me, so I’ma just calm down the situation for all of us. I’m gonna give us something not to look at.”
