Hip-hop fans, we are less than 24 hours away from Wiz Khalifia’s very highly anticipated collab project with New Orleans-bred phenom, Curren$y, but this footage is sure to warm your hearts, in the meantime.
Pittsburgh rapper, Wiz Khalifa and his five-year-old son, Sebastian are the brand new stars on Oreo’s, ‘Stay Playful’ campaign.
According to BET, Their first collaboration ever will tell the story of a hard-working, bustling father and his attentive son who, simply, is fascinated by all his dad does. It dawns on both of them how obligatory it is for them to spend time together and “be playful with one another.”
Wiz has this to say about working with his on, Sebastian.
“It’s really cool for me to work with [Bash] in front of the camera because I feel like it’s something that he’s going to end up doing in life anyway. So, the more experience that you gain and the more that it’s fun and it’s comfortable, you get good memories from it … he can go on for the rest of his life and do whatever he wants to and he won’t feel, ya know, the same kind of anxiety that other people might feel. He’ll know exactly how to process roles and how to make it his as well, which is really important.”
The campaign includes an exclusive tune that will debut during the Grammys, this Sunday (Feb. 10).
Fans will be able to stream the new track exclusively through an OREO x Wiz Khalifa Limited-Edition Music Box.
“My reaction to OREOs trying to get me to make a song was like, ‘wow okay this is a cool opportunity to take what I’ve been doing for a long time and then something that I’ve been enjoying for a long time … kinda put those two together,” he stated.
