Wiz Khalifa sat down in a recent interview, and discussed the recent signing of Juicy J to the Taylor Gang label. Wiz admits to having a profound respect for Juicy J and this merger was motivated to bridge the gap between both artists.
“Well, I’ve always been a huge fan of Juicy J and Three 6 Mafia and what they brought to the game,” he explained to MTV. “As far as their music, as far as their consistency, as far as just if you’re in that mood and you know what you wanna hear, they brought it and I respected that. And they brought it for years, since I was young.”
For Wiz, respect was stemmed from watching Three 6 Mafia gain success and popularity within the hiphop game.
“I remember when ‘Tear da Club Up’ first came out and I remember when ‘Stay Fly’ came out, and those are two huge songs from the same group of people who never fell off or lost it at all. And I really look up to that and respect that.”
