MTV’s Hip Hop POV Finale: Waka Flocka Admits Wiz Khalifa Beef Was Over Weed
By Sowmya Krishnamurthy
Tonight’s season finale episode of MTV’s “Hip Hop POV” (airs midnight ET) is filled with reveals and insider gossip. Waka Flocka Flame opens up about his beef with fellow rapper Wiz Khalifa. Despite appearing on the same episode of Hip Hop POV a few weeks ago, the buzzy rappers have not been the best of friends. In a sit-down with Def Jam’s Bu Thiam, Flocka says that it was weed of all things, that sparked the feud, as the two were smoking and Wiz couldn’t hang.
Wiz then took to Twitter and threw shots at Waka but the “Round of Applause” rapper has “no problem” now with Wiz. Wiz echoed this sentiment in an interview with “RapFix Live” last month, saying, “I don’t have problems with people, because if I do, I address it. If I feel someone disrespected me or if I feel like somebody was mentioning me in an indirect way I’ma find out how to talk to that person and then we’ll squash it from there.”
The Kang, T.I., also stops by for a candid interview with the crew. He talks about his upcoming album Trouble Man, his disregard for music blogs (He’s too high for them!) and shares that his protege Iggy Azalea is no longer signed to Interscope. Iggy inked a much-talked about deal with the label earlier this year. Although Tip wouldn’t say what label she will ultimately align with and release her debut, The New Classic, through he says that he’s open to both a major or indie deal.
Rounding out the night, Black Hippy’s ScHoolboy Q makes a rare primetime appearance and Travis Porter gets the crowd ramped up with a high-energy performance.
