Some people may have been shocked to hear Kanye West shout out Wiz Khalifa on his song ‘Way Too Cold’ (aka ‘Theraflu’). Even Wiz himself was surprised to hear his name on the song. “I took it as he knows I’m a good guy,” he says.

Wizzy was mentioned on the track in reference to Yeezy’s ex-girlfriend Amber Rose who is now engaged to the Pittsburgh, Pa. rapper. “And the whole industry want to f— your old chick / Only n—a I got respect for is Wiz,” West raps on the song.

While the two rappers have never met, Wiz sees West’s one-line verse as a compliment to his relationship with Rose. “So the fact that we’re two great people that are treating each other well, he’s coming down and saying, ‘Hey, hats off to you.’ That’s how I see it,” he told MTV’s Hip-Hop POV (via Ace Showbiz).

When asked if it annoys him when people throw Kanye questions at him, Wiz replied, “It doesn’t really bother me because it’s something that people are gonna always be interested in,” he says. “So I just accept it for what it is and keep it pushing man. I got a whole positive campaign and it’s all love.”

Wiz doesn’t object to a possible collaboration with West in the future but he’s not forcing the matter. If it happens, it’s all good. If it’s doesn’t, it’s not the end of the world.
