Wiz Khalifa Apologizes To DJs Following Viral Outburst At Club
The rapper has addressed his angry outburst, which was captured on camera at a nightclub in Los Angeles a week earlier. On “The Breakfast Club” on Friday, he had a conversation with DJ Drama and DJ Envy and expressed regret for his actions.
“First of all, I want to apologize to all the DJs and the entire DJ community for my behaviour,” said Wiz. “I do realize that it was a bit much and I’m a big enough man to be like, ‘Yo, that shouldn’t have happened.
“That shouldn’t go down. That’s not how business gets handled. That’s not how you get your point across.’ So I apologize to anybody who I offended, sincerely.”

Wiz revealed that his club appearance at Poppy was scheduled to coincide with the release of his new album Multiverse. The DJ received a flash drive with a five-song set that Wiz and his crew had prepared. However, things didn’t go as expected when he had to perform.
Wiz can be seen in video footage yelling at and even threatening to fight the DJs in front of the audience.
“It was just a real issue with timing and firing the songs, the cues were wrong,” he said. “It wasn’t going right. The music wasn’t going right. There were people talking over it.”
He “calmly” attempted to communicate with the DJs in order for them to “get on the same page.” As the sets went on, he said, “it simply grew more and more amateur; songs were playing in the middle of my songs.”
Wiz couldn’t hold back his rage as he attacked the DJs and then threw their caps off. But he acknowledges that he lost control and responded in the heat of the moment.
One of the DJs, Mike Danger, did share a message on Instagram earlier this week addressing the situation. “As much as what happened was not okay, I’m going to keep it moving with the hopes that we can eventually move forward from this experience with civility and love,” he wrote.
Wiz reached out to Mike, but they have not been able to connect yet. “It’s definitely a goal of mine to get in touch with him personally and personally apologize,” he said.
