Wiz Khalifa brought a slice of Rolling Papers 2 to the Tonight Show Wednesday night, and thankfully he didn't go with "Hot Now."

Instead, Khalifa linked with Rae Sremmurd's Swae Lee (who made an excellent hat selection) for a performance of the Young Chop and CBMIX-produced "Hopeless Romantic." Catch that in full up top. To avoid seeing host Jimmy Fallon, I recommend skipping ahead to the 0:12 mark and getting the hell out of there by 3:47.


This week's Rolling Papers 2 talk has largely centered on a line in the aforementioned "Hot Now." In the opening track's tk verse, Wiz says:

Smoke got my eyes lookin' Korean

Wiz, who's used similar lines in his lyrics before, defended the lyric during a recent appearance on the Breakfast Club. "Chill out, I'm not a racist," he said. "I love all races. I have Korean friends who are not offended, so I don't know those people who are saying that."

Even Tyga chimed in on the lyric earlier this week. Approached by one of TMZ's celebrity botherers outside the Il Pastaio Italian restaurant in Beverly Hills Tuesday, Tyga was asked about the line, with which he was seemingly entirely unaware. After hearing the line, Tyga—who's of partial Vietnamese descent—revealed that it didn't bother him. "What's wrong with it?" he asked.

Next for Wiz is his joint tour with Rae Sremmurd, formally known as the Dazed and Blazed experience.
