Wiz Khalifa gets high in more ways than one in his triumphant new video for “Elevated” -- and it’ll make you want to rise to his level.
The stylish clip shows Wiz smoking weed alongside a lingerie-clad woman in a hotel room, toasting to the good life over a feast of pasta and lobster, and throwing it back with old school clips of his rise to fame.
The Pittsburgh MC premiered the video on Vogue.com on Wednesday and spoke to the fashion powerhouse about his inspiration, saying, “It was about showing a little bit of my skills, that I’m in a class by myself.” He also elaborated on the cool pants he sports in the vid: “I’ve got a pair of Saint Laurent jeans that I wear in the video and I have another pair that I made myself. Well, they’re custom, so they’re tailored.” (Hear that, Kanye? #WizWearsCoolPants.)
The motivational, piano-heavy “Elevated” is the second single from Wiz’s February mixtape Khalifa, following the Travis Scott-featuring “Bake Sale.”
