Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose walked down the red carpet hand in hand at the 2013 BET Awards. While Taylor Gang’s head honcho wasn’t nominated this year, he stopped to talk to VIBE about his label’s upcoming releases.

“We have the Taylor Gang Project.,” Wiz tells VIBE. “Juicy’s album is coming, my album is coming out later on this year. I got single that will be dropping later this summer that people should look out for. It’s going to be amazing.”

Recently, Wiz cut a new single that he thinks will become one of his new fan favorites. The PA bred rapper assured us it was a long time coming this upcoming collaboration. “I do got a feature on the single but I haven’t told anybody yet,” Wiz says with a smile. “It’s someone that people would expect and they’ll like it. It’s something that been needed to happen. But we got the right song and it’s the right moment so it’s going to be big.”

Last week, Khalifa also revealed the title of his forthcoming 5th solo opus on Twitter. This time around, Wiz is going all out and he doesn’t care who doesn’t like it.

“I’m definitely naming it Blacc Hollywood. It just represents the lifestyle—not really like ‘Black people in Hollywood’ but just like a Black attitude, not giving a ‘F about anything. [It’s like] just really blacking out on the world. We bringing that to Hollywood.”

Rostrum has not yet confirmed a release date for the upcoming album.
