Wiz Khalifa has premiered his video, titled “The Play,” and it has gone viral, with plenty of reactions on Twitter. Perhaps it’s because Wiz not only lights up plenty of smoke in the new video to his song “The Play” that folks are intrigued. Or, it could be that adorable little boy that accompanies Khalifa in the video that is bringing the views.
Published on May 14, the video produced by Harry Fraud is gaining so many views currently that YouTube has issued their standard 301+ views that it gives to videos going viral.
“See Wiz on tour this summer,” says the YouTube video’s description for “The Play,” which points to Khalifa’s tour schedule.

Wiz has gained fans since he threatened to “Roll Up” on folks years ago in his song of the same name. Khalifa’s marriage to Amber Rose was also well documented in the press, as well as Rose’s butt, which has been the subject of many silicone butt injection rumors, as reported by the Inquisitr.
Wiz’s “The Play” official video contains lyrics and rhymes about real guys making it off the streets without many advantages. His lyrics speak to a disenfranchised segment of the population that have found success through sheer divine providence. The song is reminiscent of the lyrics that rappers like Drake spit when they flow about starting from the bottom and ending up in a lot more luxurious places.
“The Play” proves that kids can steal the show, reports Rap-Up — a publication that writes about Wiz’s Taylors making an appearance in the official video, but remarks that Khalifa’s two-year-old son with Rose named Sebastian steals the whole “The Play” video with his cuteness.
“The Play” video isn’t the first time that Sebastian has won over hearts of folks online. When the toddler sang Wiz’s song “We Dem Boyz,” and the video was posted to Instagram, it won raves.
Already Twitter users are bragging about “The Play” by Wiz making them happy, perhaps because it shows a man spending time with his son. A pit bull is also featured in the video, but it’s Khalifa’s love for his little boy that shines through “The Play” all throughout.
