Colton Valentine has done it again.

This time, the talented street artist has paid homage to rapper Wiz Khalifa. His new mural at 820 San Pedro Ave. comes after tributes to 21 Savage, Cardi B and Nipsey Hussle, all of which are painted on the same building.

In an Instagram post, Valentine said he chose to paint Wiz Khalifa because the rapper's "new album is the only music I have listened to besides nipsey [sic] the past few weeks."
Next to Khalifa's likeness are the lyrics "Drowning out what critics say, just continue to smoke and remain G as fuck..." The line, of course is from the rapper's song "Mezmorized."

The Wiz mural would likely be loved by the rapper if he learns about it. Khalifa was just in San Antonio in March and will take the mic again in August at the Aztec Theatre. Seems like he can't get enough of the Alamo City.
