MTV is covering Pittsburgh with a new feature everyday this week as part of their “Back To The Burgh With Mac Miller” series. Today MTV interviewed Wiz Khalifa & Chevy Woods where the duo described Pittsburgh hip-hop and explained the impact of having famous rappers in the industry from Pittsburgh.
“With the music, it’s a whole new avenue we done opened up for kids and for people to look up to. It’s a reality now out there, so it’s really important for us to just embrace ‘em and motivate ‘em and push ‘em forward.” -Wiz
“Everybody’s hardworking and it’s not like a big music scene out there, so when you got somethin’, you just go with it,” emerging Pittsburgh MC Chevy Woods said in a December interview. Everybody sees the light that shines on him [Wiz Khalifa] and Mac [Miller[ and now it’s trickling down to everybody else.” -Chevy Woods
