Wiz Khalifa on why he passed on Rick Ross' Deal

"…Ross ended up calling me [the same day] to say it himself.
Though the convo Khalifa describes as cool and chill concluded with a respectful decline, the Pittsburgh native admits that even if his deal with Atlantic were nonexistent, he still would’ve passed on Ross’ offer. “I would’ve kept doing what I was doing till I found something huge [outside of Maybach Music]. I’m all about standing behind my own brand instead of putting myself up under somebody else’s,” he explains. “[Success] might take a little bit longer and take more work, but in the end it pays off because I can stand right up there with my peers and have respect.” "

Oddisee of Diamond District is one
of my favorite producer. So it makes

them into hip hop/jazz beats.
