Taylor

Gang
Taylor Gang is a life style, made up of all the hardcore fans of Wiz Khalifa. It's family, a movement and a statement. You could say that it originated from where Wiz and his team went to high school at Taylor Allderdice and the fact that all Wiz and the crew always were wearing Chuck Taylors sneakers
.
Illuminati
Wiz is supposedly in Illuminati.
(I honestly dont think that he
is).
They say he is bacause of the shirt that him and some people are wearing in the black and yellow music video.
