Khalifa got into Air Jordans because of Curren$y
Wiz Khalifa has made countless music with Curren$y, but their relationship goes beyond just recording. Recently speaking on the Drink Champs Podcast, Wiz revealed that Curren$y inspired him to start buying Air Jordans. The Taylor Gang boss explained that he wasn't used to buying the shoe, especially because he couldn't afford them while growing up. Everything changed after he met Curren$y.
“I never even owned a pair of Jordans until I met Curren$y,” Wiz said. “I wanted some but I just never had them. Chuck's. In Pittsburgh, it's Air Forces, Timbs. N-ggas wore Js but like I had to choose if I was gonna spend that much money on sneakers or other things. Growing up, I never even thought about that like spending $130, $150 bucks on a pair of shoes.”
