ATLANTA (AP) — Rapper Wiz Khalifa says preparation for becoming a first-time father and husband has helped put him in a more mature musical state of mind.
But that doesn’t mean Khalifa will refrain from his weed-smoking, rock star-like ways.
“I’m at a different point in my life,” said Khalifa, whose sophomore album, “O.N.I.F.C.,” debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s 200 albums chart this week with 141,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen Scan.
“I just want to say things a little bit differently and express myself on another level on the album,” he continued. “I have new responsibilities, but I’m always going to smoke weed and enjoy myself. My son is going to love me for the same reasons others do. I’m not just going to turn into some old fart.”
For the 25-year-old Khalifa, life is just getting started. He and his fiancee, Amber Rose, who is in the third trimester of her pregnancy, are expected to get married at a courthouse in a few weeks.
Khalifa said he and Rose — an ex-girlfriend of Kanye West — want to marry before the birth of their son. He said they will hold a traditional wedding ceremony later with family and friends.
“There’s a lot of excitement going on,” the Pittsburg-based rapper said. “I just worked my (butt) off and tried to be better every day. I’ve just tried to move forward naturally.”
