Wiz Khalifa: Rihanna Inspired ’28 Grams’ Mixtape


Rihanna is a walking muse. Whether it’s posting scantily clad selfies on her (now banned) Instagram or snatching Balmain ads, the fashion world is hers, we’re just living in it. Now, the Bajan bad gal has served as a source of inspiration for one of her music peers: Wiz Khalifa. After releasing his 28 Grams mixtape, this week, he tweeted, “Rihanna inspired this mixtape.” Rihrih didn’t hesitate to return the love. “HE GETS IT!!! Too real, 1 love broski!!” Wiz also shouted her out in part 3 of his DayToday series, “…Everybody from like my n*ggas to fuckin Rihanna, like ‘This is the type of shit we wanna hear.'”

This past Memorial Day weekend, the “We Dem Boyz” rapper experienced a minor delay in the release of his 28 Grams mixtape thanks to a super brief jail stint. Hey, at least he got a unique selfie out of it.
