Remember when Kanye West couldn’t decide on a proper title for The Life of Pablo and told the world no one has ever listened to a Wiz Khalifa album straight through after the Taylor Gang boss scoffed at the proposed Waves title?

Well, it didn’t affect Wiz one bit. In fact, the Pittsburgh megastar sees it as a form of flattery.

“There’s competition in rap, and Kanye obviously sees me as that,” Wiz said in his Playboy magazine July/August issue 20Q feature, which is currently on newsstands.

“That was a weird situation, because it was something I would do in real life. All I did was speak my mind. I’m a Max B fan, and if me and Kanye were in a room and he said, ‘Yo, I’mma name my album Waves,’ I’d be like, ‘Don’t do that. You’re not allowed to do that.’ Nobody really does that these days. Nobody checks niggas like, ‘Nah, nigga.’ No one is above being spoken to, and if you’ve got real friends, they’ll tell you how they feel. That’s how I handle all my situations in real life. Even if I have a problem with somebody, I’m not gonna advertise it. We can go around the corner and we can really do it. But all in front of people? That’s not me. Niggas talk shit every day, and niggas say sh*t about my ex, niggas say shit about my kid. It’s all good.”

The two megastar rappers — who have a common ex-lover in Amber Rose — would eventually agree to disagree but neither seem vested enough to take their disagreements onto wax.

Speaking of Amber, during a recent interview, she spoke on the hopes of her potentially rekindling the flame with Wiz, as the final stages of their divorce approaches.

While Wiz tells Jeff Weiss he isn’t above getting hitched again, it probably won’t be for several more years (re: decades).

“I think I will, but it will be later. It was cool; it was fun,” he admitted, as he harbored in on the learning experience.

“Things that would’ve taken me much longer to learn, I learned in a short period of time. I feel like I’ll probably get married again when I’m in my 50s. I was sad after it ended, but I wasn’t depressed; I’ve never really been depressed in my life. I was sad because we were going through a lot and my son was involved, and that hurt me because my main goal is to raise my son how I want. I’m a control freak, and not being able to control that was weird. I didn’t know how to deal with it and didn’t understand that feeling. A year later, I’m way smarter and better equipped to deal with it.”

The highly documented couple still maintain that they are on good terms but as of now, Wiz doesn’t see them ever going back to the way things were when they were tongue wrestling on red carpets.

“I feel like not being in that relationship helped me out a lot. I learned how to be present where I need to be present. I’d been present in the relationship, but at that age and with what was going on, it just wasn’t right for me. It helps to walk away sometimes, even though it was super hard,” he says.
