Taylor Gang capo Wiz Khalifa wasted no time putting his twist on Drake’s newest single, “Started From The Bottom.” Just two days after the YMCMB rap star let the infectious new track loose, Wiz made sure to add his own verse to a remix.
Khalifa, who released his sophomore LP, O.N.I.F.C., this past December, issued a brief statement about his motive for hopping on the Mike Zombie production. He says, “I know that song juss came out lol but i think it speaks to all of us so i put my verse on it before everyone else does :-)”
Keeping his bars in line with Drake’s origin of rhyme story, Wiz addresses past events including his now defused issues with Waka Flocka and even how he once turned down an offer to join Drizzy on tour. From the sound of Wiz’s verse, however, the Pittsburgh rapper is now extending an olive branch for Taylor Gang and OVO to stack some collective show money.
While there are sure to be a barrage of “Started From the Bottom” remixes in the next few weeks, coming from the top notch to the bottom of the barrel, who can be mad at how Young Khalifa sets if off.
Check the remix below and look for Drake to release the official video for the single on Grammy night.
