Wiz Khalifa has a lot on his mind these days.

The rapper, who earned the biggest single of his career in 2015, is getting ready to drop Rolling Papers 2, the second of two albums he plans to release in 2016.

Wiz recently opened up to Playboy about his personal life, growth and all the great things happening in his career in their “20 Questions with Playboy” segment.

On police brutality in Pittsburgh:

“Cops there are crazy. I’ve never been pulled over without them having a gun to my head. Even with traffic stops, they’ll put a gun to your head and say, “Get the fuck out the car. What you got?” Searching you, breaking shit, twisting your arm. They’re cool about weed, though. I got jammed up a lot in Pittsburgh, but I never did real time.”

On his infamous Twitter beef with Kanye West:

“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 shit about my ex, niggas say shit about my kid. It’s all good. There’s competition in rap, and Kanye obviously sees me as that.”

On his personal growth:

“I’m in the reinvention stage, like when Justin Bieber was a child and then transformed himself into a different person but one who was still successful. I was a streetwear brand, and now I’m a high–end designer. People are going to accept me as a grown man. A lot of people don’t even know I’m only 28 because I’m kind of ageless.”

It’s pretty rare for Wiz to show his deep side, so the transformation is obvious.
