Bruno Mars, Wiz Khalifa & B.o.B. Cover VIBE

What do Bruno, Wiz and Bobby Ray all have in common? Well besides taking over the charts, the three amigos also cover the latest issue of VIBE. The mag hits newsstands February 22, but for now, check out a few excerpts below.

WIZ KHALIFA: Potheads and hippies, we flock. We’re peaceful as hell. You don’t hear about my concerts getting shot up or people getting beat up because they was too high and turned into a weed monster.

BRUNO MARS: I’m a fan of young Elvis. And I’m a fan of the story, how he freaked out white America by doing this Black rock’n'roll. He would go onstage shaking his hips, and people were freaking out. They said, “You can’t film him from the waist down.” To me, that’s fucking awesome.

B.o.B: My loyalty is not to any corporation, my loyalty is to the music. That doesn’t mean that I don’t work with corporations, it doesn’t mean that I don’t sell music—it just means that first I’m an artist regardless of anything.

    how come wiz looks like hes about to die? i know all he does is smoke but damn, ol half dead muhfucka.

  • I.S.A.A.C.

    Man…. a lot of hate on this one lol.

    You can look at this 2 ways:
    -Hating on artists that sound more like pop now then they do hiphop which was their roots

    or

    -It’s a HUGE positive for us & pop music that there are talented cats with hiphop influence getting those radio checks and hopefully they’ll be the top selling sound instead of Kesha, BEP, Jason Derulo, etc. It’s improves the genre of pop a lot… and i’m not even a fan of Wiz.

    (we just gotta hope none of them do a full BEP transformation)

    also…. Bruno Mars is the man.

    @Cold Blood… does this guy really have nothin better to do than to go on every post saying “YOU CAN HATE ME NOW!” ?

  • Donn

    HA !

  • Ashin Kusher

    I don’t think VIBE are saying these artists are pop, if you look it says “the NEW pop music” as in these are the popular artists who have been killing the charts. As if the genre of pop is moving away from the britney spears, lady gaga etc. and talented dudes like this are what to pay attention to. Glad to see Bruno here, dude is super talented.

  • NotoriousRambo

    WIZ KHALIFA IS A ONE HIT WONDER BLACK & YELLOW IS DEAD **NEXT!**

    This cover is so sketchy. Bruno looks like a big girl, Wiz looks lost, and B.o.B. is chillin cause he’s about to win some Grammy’s with his homegirl Bruno.

    POP????? Damn, I’m having a flashback to 2000 when Em was categorized as pop! I don’t care too much for Wiz, but he is definitely rap. And BOBBY RAY (along with Em) is an UNDERGROUND EMCEE! FOH with that pop shit! smfh! I’d rather have Bruno listed as Hip-Hop then have B.o.B. & Wiz Khalifa listed as fucking POP. Fuck Vibe!

  • Itz Yourz

    New Pop Music? Very questionable. What is pop music? What is HipHop? Is there a definitive of each genre to rubber stamp someone in that category/sound/music?

    I always thought Pop was short for Popular music…are these three not? Always thought Hiphop* stood for the most Hip (def) jumping sound of music goin on at the time in black people world…are these three not?

    As for the cover….LMAO…they look like weirdos.

    *hip-hop and pop music may be the same thing but hip-hop is said when talking about black people popular music.

  • Phantom

    Niggas Is mad Ha….. Bet B.o.B murder most these rappers in the game when it comes to straight raw, uncut freestyles, he aint a sellout he jus making good musik, wiz now he sellin out black and yellow aight but he trying to bring back auto tune but they are “Popular” Music Artist just because you dont them every where like the G.O.A.T Eminem or that one dude ummm yea Lil Wayne Don’t Mean They Arent

  • Word

    I dont even know what Pop Music is anymore. I dont know what Hip Hop music is anymore. Shit, Nicki Minaj is categorized as Hip Hop, when everyone and every reviewer would admit her album was pop. Imean, what is POP? Is it a SOUND? Is it anything thats a CHART TOPPER? Is it a LIFESTYLE? IMAGE? RACE? Pop use to be Britney Spears and Back Street. There was a clear LINE. But not everything is thrown in as Pop. Imean, I like Em but is he pop cuz he was sucessful with his album? Or was it the sound of his album? Is Black and Yellow Pop? it doesnt sound like it, but its a chart topper so it must be pop right? This music industry is all fucked up. You cant sell records unless you POP now. Banks puts out HFM2 in 2003, its prolly Gold or on its way to platinum by now. And it aint this shit about “growth in music” thats bullshit.

    Country music has been the same for YEARS and Taylor Swift can still make the exact same country music shit and go platinum first week. Gaga is the 2011 Madonna/Spear/Aguilera all wrapped in one. Making the exact same sound as a decade ago when Britney did it, but she sells. So what gives? Why are people tired of the same ol shit in hip hop, but Gaga can make a song about dancing or being a monster and critics call it groundbreaking?
