Sebastian has done more for Wiz Khalifa than made him a proud father. The rapper tells HipHopDX exclusively that his son has turned him into a mature man and savvy business person.
“I think it’s just a part of growing up,” says Wiz. “You know, everybody has that point where they grow up and you get more responsibilities and schedule your life and you do things a little bit differently than you did when you was younger and you’re not able to be as wild and as spontaneous. You know what I’m sayin’? Structure is always needed, so my kid coming into my life and helping me structure everything has helped me as a person and as a business person.”
Although parenthood has impacted his career, Khalifa assures that he’s still the rapper that fans love to hear. “When it comes to fatherhood and music, those two are two totally different things,” explains the artist. “Who I am professionally is totally different from who I am as a father and as a person.”
Sebastian Thomaz is Wiz and wife Amber Rose’s first child together. The little one will celebrate his first birthday on February 21, 2014.
