Wiz Khalifa has promised to stop doing this.

This was stated by the cannabis guru earlier this month on an episode of DJ Whoo Kid’s “WHOO’s House” podcast, when he discussed not wearing a lot of jewelry when out and about in public.

This is for his own safety and the safety of those around him.

The “Young, Wild, and Free” rapper said:

“You grow out of that shit and you place value in other things at certain points.

It’s cool to have that mind frame as well or it’s cool to have the little joint too. You don’t have to have the biggest, craziest situation going on.”

Wiz also mentioned all of the recent homicides, particularly those involving major rap figures.

“And with all of these murders and shit going on, it’s inviting fucking energy that you don’t need. And people look at you like they get excited when they see that type of s-t.”

Last month, the 35-year-old North Dakota native went viral after suggesting that rappers wearing a lot of chains were “going outta style.”

However, it appears that Wiz Khalifa had an epiphany last year when he told his followers in June 2021 that wearing so much bling out and about can make you a target.

Wiz Khalifa’s remarks come after the death of PnB Rock, with authorities suspecting that his Instagram post played a role in his death.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the shooter who killed the rapper at a South Los Angeles restaurant demanded that PnB Rock hand over his jewels and other valuables before fighting with him and firing shots.

Rakim Allen, 30, was in the restaurant with his girlfriend, who posted a location-tagged image on Instagram, which has since been deleted.

The incident happened shortly after the rapper was identified online as being at the restaurant, and authorities are still investigating whether this prompted the attack.

They are now advising pawnshops to look for the jewels stolen from the rapper’s neck.

Takeoff, another rapper, was shot and killed earlier this month. On November 1, he was killed in an early morning shooting in Houston over an alleged dice game, which sparked a brawl in a bowling alley.
