According to the rapper who alluded to Tyson in his song What’s the Play, at that time, he and Amber Rose were still married.
“We were like crossing paths. I think I was going to my seat and you were going to your seat. It was when I was still with Amber. I was like, ‘Yo Mike, what up?’. You was with your wife, and was like, ‘Hey, it’s my wife”. And I’m like, ‘Mike is cool as hell, man’. That’s a real, genuine dude,” narrated Wiz.
Listening to Khalifa, Tyson expressed he tries his best though sometimes people make him angry. “We were just walking past each other. So, I wasn’t trying to p*ss you off at all,” Khalifa replied by saying. Listening to Khalifa, Tyson, who recently launched TUD, laughed and was accompanied by Whoo Kid.
