We thought we had heard every version of ‘Hello’ imaginable, until Wiz Khalifa dropped this.
Rapper Wiz Khalifa’s freestyling skills are no joke and neither is his love for smoking weed. So what happens when you combine his ability to write to any beat, with his love of grass and then throw in the biggest track of 2015? You get the most unexpected Adele re-working ever!
Wiz Khalifa has offered his own take on Adele’s ‘Hello’.
While appearing on Los Angeles' Power 106 radio, Khalifa was offered the opportunity to put his freestyling skills to the test by host Mister Cap. When asked if he could write to anything, Khalifa had replied, "I have to feel it out, you got a beat or something?”
The host then began playing Adele’s mega-hit ‘Hello’, with Khalifa adding his unique take to the song’s chorus. ‘Roll one up and let’s get high,’ Khalifa began singing. ‘I am trying to get fried I bought some weed and you can smoke. You tryin’ to get high, I’m tryin’ to toke. Hit this weed once, don’t you choke.’
‘I got a grinder, I got a bong, I got some weed so let’s make a song. I got some munchies, we all get along,’ he continued. ‘I smoke weed ain’t nothing wrong. My money good and my money long. My b–ch bad and my kush strong. I be right, I don’t be wrong. I smoke weed all day long. Wake up to it, go to sleep with that, pack.’
When asked what he was calling the re-worked track, Khalifa first asked what Adele’s original song was called and then responded, ‘Hella Os’. Interestingly, back in 2013 before the release of his fourth album Blacc Hollywood, Khalifa had teased a collaboration with Adele.
"I got a lot of guest appearances that I've already done, but none of them have been cleared for the album yet," Wiz had told Fuse magazine. "I got songs with Miley [Cyrus], I got songs with Adele.” While the Adele/Khalifa collaboration never materialised, perhaps after hearing ‘Hella Os’ these two might have a future working together.
