Wiz Khalifa recently confessed that he doesn't "feel any pressure" to outperform or best his previous releases. Moreover, he made such statements candidly on his Twitter page in a series of small but poignant reflections. Of course, Wiz is one of those dominant early 2010s artists that continues to put out relevant material today. What's more is that his status and star power remain as established as ever, so maybe his words seem a tad unnecessary. Still, it's clear that with all that growth and experience, it becomes harder to stay satisfied with anything other than what you truly want to pursue.
"I don't feel any pressure to top what I've done," the Pittsburgh icon explained in a tweet. "Only keep adding on and staying authentic to where I'm at in my life. In a world full of formula driven records im making what feels good and what i feel people would enjoy. I wish this much peace and happiness on every artist cause it's not easy navigating through a long term career. I'm showin all my Taylors what it looks like when done right," he concluded in another tweet.
Some Great Artists Don't "Feel Any Pressure"
After these remarks, fans expressed a lot of support for Wiz and showed him plenty of love in the replies. Also, they showed a lot of excitement and hype for his upcoming tour with the one and only Snoop Dogg. The two collaborators and kindred artistic spirits will go on the High School Reunion tour with Too $hort, Warren G, Berner, and DJ Drama. When they previously teased the tour, fans initially believed that they were working on a sequel film or album. Still, it's not entirely out of the question.
Meanwhile, Wiz actually has plenty of live performances to look forward to. Furthermore, he'll hit seven Midwestern cities on The Good Trip tour with Joey Bada$$, Smoke DZA, Berner, and Chevy Woods the week of April 15th to the 22nd. Maybe Wiz doesn't need that extra pressure when he's already doing so well for himself.
