Tim Westwood went on the tour bus at BBC Radio One Big Weekend in Carlisle with Wiz Khalifa, talking music, tattoos, mixtapes and Pittsburgh swagger. “Some people they have a certain space plotted out,” Wiz said about tat strategy. “Some people just want to have sleeve or 1/4 sleeve. I want the full neck, chest, everything. I’m working on my legs now, I’m about to do my ankles up to my thighs. In the next couple of years, that’s what’s gonna be happening.” Watch the comments via YouTube below.
