Wiz Khalifa could be the poster child for rap’s involvement in the cannabis industry. Like Cypress, Hill, he’s built a career on a foundation of weed. On Friday (November 13), he made it clear on how he feels about smoking with blunt wraps versus smoking with papers.
“Stop smokin blunts,” Wiz posted in his Instagram stories. “No blunts in my session or in the room with me.”
He added in a follow-up post, “If you smoke blunts, you like tobacco and no weed and we’re not the same.”
The Taylor Gang leader is a partner with RAWthentic Rolling Papers and sells rolling papers on his official webstore. His personal crusade against blunt papers isn’t anything new for those following the Pittsburgh rapper. He, along with Curren$y, once tried to convince Nipsey Hussle to switch from blunt wraps to white papers and in 2012, he firmly planted his love for smoking papers over blunts in an interview with DJ Whoo Kid, highlighting the difference in their materials.
“I smoke papers, not blunts though,” Wiz told Whoo Kid. “I’m against blunts, totally against them. I hate blunts. It’s the tobacco. I smoke weed, no tobacco.”
