Wiz Khalifa Covers Flaunt Magazine

"I was more or less forced into being authentic," @WizKhalifa tells us in our Witness Protection cover story. While others hide behind facades, he knows doing him is the only way to go. "When you’re growing up you try to be what you see around you… There was a lot of East Coast rap and big clothes and people weren’t talking about how they felt. It was really gangster and really hard and there was a lot of battle rappers at that time too and half of the shit they were saying was what they were going to do to somebody. I was competing with that, but it really wasn’t who I was. There was nobody to hold the mirror up for me. I had to look down into myself and say, ‘This is who I really am and this is what I want people to see me as,’ and those were the best moments for me. And that’s why I feel like I was forced to be my authentic self, because nothing else fucking worked.” | Hit Flaunt.com now to read to full story and watch the trippy Flaunt Film he stars in, too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photographer: @mason.poole Stylist: @zoecostello Groomer: @tlovecutz ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fashion credits: @ysl by @AnthonyVaccarello jacket and jeans, @gosharubchinskiy boxer briefs, and @ditaeyewear sunglasses. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #flauntwitnessprotection #wizkhalifa #khalifa #taylorgang #flauntmagazine
