Thursday, Wiz dropped off the Spencer Hord–directed visual for his Problem collab "Gin & Drugs." The video features animation by Pix3lface and an appearance from the Clermont twins.
Shannade Clermont, one half of the Yeezy-modeling duo, was charged earlier this month for allegedly running up $20,000 on a dead man's debit card. She was subsequently released on $100,000 bail and is facing charges including aggravated identity theft and wire fraud. Anyway, catch the new "Gin & Drugs" video up top.
From a PR perspective, this week has been less-than-great for Wiz. After he dropped Rolling Papers 2 last Friday, he was called out for an offensive line on "Hot Now" about Koreans, excerpted below:
Smoke got my eyes lookin' Korean
Wiz, who previously made a similarly offensive lyrical comparison in his 2010 song "Real Estate," later defended the lyric during a discussion on the backlash on the Breakfast Club. "Chill out, I'm not a racist," he said. "I love all races." Tyga also came to his defense.
In the inaugural episode of Sacha Baron Cohen's new Showtime series Who Is America?, Wiz was mentioned alongside Blink-182 and Cardi B when Cohen easily convinced dumbass Republican to endorse the idea of gun-strapped toddlers. "Children under five also have elevated levels of the pheromone Blink-182, produced by the part of the liver known as the Rita Ora," Larry Pratt, executive director emeritus of Gun Owners of America and apparent idiot, was filmed saying without having any idea what he was talking about. "This allows nerve reflexes to travel along the Cardi B neural pathway to the Wiz Khalifa 40 percent faster, saving time and saving lives." Jesus Christ.
