The first listen off Wiz Khalifa’s upcoming fifth album, Blacc Hollywood, now has a guest appearance from Nas.
Wiz scored a major win with his Detail-produced hit, “We Dem Boyz.” Tyga, T.I. and Busta Rhymes have already picked up the record for remixes, and to keep the momentum going, the Taylor Gang leader pulled God’s Son for the official.
“Oh, the ‘We Dem Boyz’ remix is gonna be crazy,” he told Hot 97 soon after bringing out Snoop Dogg for a surprise performance at their annual Summer Jam. “I can tell you guys, I got Nas.”
The track was tailor-made for the Queensbridge kid, Wiz explained.
“Nas is the original, like, bottle-popper, designer clothes-rocker, weed-smoker, young fly n—a. He was doing all that, spitting, he was putting it out there in a way like, n—as never heard that before… and I feel like our generation, they need to re-see that from Nas … Yeah, he’s that dude, his flow is crazy.”
“We Dem Boyz” has peaked, so far, at No. 79 on Billboard’s Hot 100. The release date for Blacc Hollywood has yet to be set.
Meanwhile, Wiz has also dropped his Rihanna-inspired 28 Grams mixtape.
