By now, Kanye West’s “Way Too Cold” (Theraflu), has blasted on the radio and in clubs many times, so tons of people have heard it. In the song, West fires direct shots at his current girlfriend’s ex, Kris Humphries, while simultaneously dropping Wiz Khalifa’s name in the track, but in a respectful way.
Everyone knows Wiz is now engaged to West’s ex-girl Amber Rose, so people might think that Kanye would have some negative words in regards to Wiz if he were to mention him on a song. However, West clearly stated that he respects Wiz when he spit the lines:
“The whole industry wanna f*ck your old chick / The only n*gga I got respect for is Wiz / And I’ll admit I fell in love with Kim / Right around the same time she fell in love with him.”
Until recently, Wiz Khalifa has remained silent about his name being dropped in the song. But DJ Funkmaster Flex got Wiz to speak up about the song on New York City’s Hot 97 radio show Monday night (4/23). Here’s what Wiz had to say in response to Flex asking him if he was shocked and why he felt shocked:
“Yes, because he said my name. I’ve gone a long time without anybody actually saying my name out loud like that. It wasn’t a bad thing. It was just the fact that it was my name. That’s my name. it was wild, it was wild, but nothing negative. Everybody got positive from it, so it’s positive.”
