AceShowbiz - Wiz Khalifa has a special method to pay tribute to fellow artists who had fallen in the past years. Taking the stage at the first Sauce Boyz Fest in Puerto Rico, the "See You Again" hitmaker incorporated a memorial reel to remember the likes of Nipsey Hussle, XXXTentacion and Mac Miller among others.
The 35-year-old hit the stage on Saturday, May 20, and performed one of his hit songs, "See You Again". During his performance, the screens behind him began to display a video honoring late hip-hop stars, which also included Juice WRLD, Lil Peep, King Von, Young Dolph, Pop Smoke and Takeoff. Many of them were tragically murdered or killed in violent acts.
Khalifa's song "See You Again" itself was written in honor of late Hollywood actor Paul Walker who passed away at the age of 40. Paul, who was famous for his role on the "Fast and Furious" movie series, died in a tragic car crash back in 2013, prompting Wiz to work with Charlie Puth in creating the song, which landed at number one on Billboard 100.
Wiz's heartfelt tribute at Sauce Boyz Fest came more than a month after he utilized his craft to respond to online bullies. On April 1, after he was mocked online for posting pics capturing his toes, he took to Instagram to share a video of him reading a poem titled "Stop Making Jokes About My Feet".
"Stop making jokes about my feet, because that s**t ain't funny. Y'all keep making jokes about my feet, but b***h I got money. You ain't gonna say it to my face, but you'll talk about me when I'm gone," he said in the clip. "Your toes probably look like that, too, but you got nail polish on. When I seen all those tweets, you can't imagine how I felt."
"I get pedicures but my feet still dry. So don't laugh, send help," he continued. "Stop talking about my feet, 'cause that s**t ain't funny. Y'all keep making jokes about my feet, but b***h I got money. When I log online I seen all types of disrespect, bunch of n***as talking s**t. Not one nail tech."
"Talking crazy about Wiz Khalifa, like your s**t so neat. Look down past your phone and take a picture of your own damn feet. Stop making jokes about my feet, because that s**t ain't funny. Y'all keep making jokes about my feet, but b***h I got money," he added.
