Wiz Khalifa addresses career longevity in new interview

Wiz Khalifa has opened up in a new interview with Apple Music about the importance of being in charge of your own career.

The 32-year-old star has urged up-and-coming rappers to be the captain of their own ship, and having unique ideas if they want to have career longevity.

He said: "You have to be the captain of your own ship and everything moves around you or it ain't gonna work these days.

"The big people gravitate toward the people with the ideas, and if you ain't got no ideas of who you are, can't make it."

In recent years, Wiz has collaborated with rising star Megan Thee Stallion. And the chart-topping rapper has revealed he is eager to work Megan again in the future.

Speaking to Ebro Darden about their collaboration, he explained: "I got on Megan's music when she first started really droppin', like right before she became super popular.

"I was just a fan of her flow and the s**t that she was talkin' about.

"When I went to the studio with her, I was just like, 'Yo, I need you to do this verse for me' and she knocked that out then did like two or three other ones and I did some joints for her... people are gonna hear us more."

Khalifa recently released his new album, The Saga of Wiz Khalifa, and he thinks fans can really embrace the record.

He said: "I feel like the fans needed some hits, man... they needed something to feel proud of to call themselves Wiz fans and enjoy music."
