Wiz Khalifa Has A New Series Coming To Apple Music
Wiz Khalifa is set to launch his very own docuseries, “Wiz Khalifa: Behind the Cam,” on April 17 via Apple Music.
According to the announcement obtained by Variety, the series “will go into the most intimate aspects of Wiz’s life,” containing archival footage from throughout his decade-plus-long career. The series is going to feature interviews with his family and closest friends. Wiz Khalifa: Behind the Cam is set to debut on April 17 — which lands right between the rapper’s performances at both Coachella weekends — with all five episodes becoming available worldwide on Apple Music.
The trailer takes a different approach to that of most music documentaries, showing footage of a teen Wiz at an in-store meet-and-greet attended by one person, and rapping for a handful of people at a basketball court. His mother and longtime associates talk about his early drive and dedication, even when he was performing for hardly anyone — and of course the trailer ends with him rapping the same song later in his career for thousands of people.
“Taylor Gang has been with me since the start, so I wanted to make something to show just how far we’ve come,” Wiz says, talking about his fanbase and creative crew featured throughout the limited series.
Executive producer Michael Strahan spoke about the project, saying, “Wiz and I both share a passion for family, friendship and hard work, and that’s exactly what you’ll see from him in this series. We’re excited to team up with Apple Music and give the world an intimate look into the rise of an entertainment icon.”
