Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalfia has caught the attention of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony following photos of him donning a tattoo of the veteran hip-hop group on his thigh. #BoneThugs
Reactions from various members of the crew have poured onto the Internet this weekend.
TMZ spoke to a bunch of the Bones after Wiz revealed the tattoo in an interview earlier this week. Bizzy Bone told us he thinks the tat is a great homage … especially considering it comes from another great hip-hop artist. Wish Bone said he feels blessed that Wiz looks at them as “his idols in the hip-hop game,” –and Flesh said seeing the tat blew his mind. Krayzie predictably described it as “crazy” … but Bizzy probably wrapped it up best, saying this is “proof they are legends in the hip-hop game.” (TMZ)
A few days ago, Khalifa joked about his love for R&B singer Rihanna.
When asked if he’s every gotten high with Rihanna he casually confessed, “Yea, that’s the homie,” adding that he smokes more than the “Diamonds” singer and was trying to convert her to papers because “she smokes blunts and I smoke joints.” (NY Daily News)
The Pittsburgh native also revealed how he snuck a phone behind bars following last month’s drug possession arrest.
“They’re tryna figure out how many grams I had,” he added. “How ironic.” The real irony was that he got behind bars with his cellphone. “They didn’t search me enough so I took a selfie in jail,” he told Hot 97 when asked how he was able to manage bringing his phone with him. (NY Daily News)
Details of Wiz’s unexpected run-in with law enforcement emerged online late last month.
Rapper Wiz Khalifa (real name Cameron Thomaz) was arrested Sunday morning after being stopped by a TSA officer at the El Paso International Airport, E! News has confirmed. “The TSA Officer learned that Thomaz did not have any identification which led to him being sent for secondary screening,” El Paso Chief of Police Gregory K. Allen said in a statement. “During that screening the TSA Officer located a metal container inside of the backpack which contained a prohibited item.” (E! Online)
