First, a quick disclaimer. I don’t condone Wiz Khalifa’s lifestyle or behaviour. Just say no, kids. Neither am I about to tattoo my face (each to their own). But last night, following his entirely confusing Twitter battle with Kanye West, I found myself cruising his Instagram account and madly tapping for outfit credits. It was an entirely unexpected reaction and I was just as confused as you likely are right now.

A 4-1-1 on the Kanye/Wiz spat: Khalifa insulted West’s new album name, Waves (formerly Swish), by saying he wasn’t ‘wavy’ enough to call it that (nope, we don’t know what that means either).
