    Rapper Wiz Khalifa today announced that a new documentary series about his career, called "Wiz Khalifa: Behind the Cam," will launch exclusively on Apple Music on Wednesday, April 17. The series will feature five episodes that "go into the most intimate aspects of Wiz's life," through archival footage and various interviews with friends and family (via Variety).

    The series is launching between both of Khalifa's performances at Coachella, taking place this weekend and the weekend of April 19. The project's executive producer, Michael Strahan, said that the team was excited to work with Apple Music on the series for a chance to "give the world an intimate look into the rise of an entertainment icon."
    Although Apple is shifting its video focus to Apple TV+, it appears that music-related documentaries and behind-the-scenes films will remain on Apple Music. However, Apple removed the TV & Movies section on Apple Music in a recent iOS update, which introduced a revamped layout to allow for quickly navigating curated music playlists.

    You can still find these documentaries on their respective artists' profiles if you know what you're searching for, and Apple typically promotes the latest ones on the Browse page's carousel. On macOS, TV & Movies is still available at the top of the Browse tab, including behind-the-scene films about Ed Sheeran, Kesha, Shawn Mendes, Sam Smith, and more.

    Why is it that everybody famous with a surname of Khalifa has a three-letter first name? :cool:

    I gave a flippant answer to your question but when I really think about it, as long as the person has accomplished enough to fill out an hour or two and has enough people interested in their career, hey why not a documentary on a 31 year old. Strike while the iron is hot. He may not be relevant in a few years. It is challenging to predict the longevity of a performer's career. Goodness knows when I was 18 I never would have dreamed Madonna would still be touring in her 60's in her leather underwear. :eek:

    MacRumor's aging and out-of-touch base is going to have a field day on this.

    I never understood why members in this forum click on articles about hip-hop artists just to bash them and their genre.

    Wiz Khalifa isn't from Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh's official colors are black and gold, not yellow.

    There, the documentary has been completed.

    Popularity is not an indicator of quality.

    Talking fast over a beatbox is not a skill. Especially when you can't even get the details of the ethnicity you're trying to appropriate correct.

    Maroon 5 ruins their own songs. I can't stand them.

    Maybe instead of investing resources in trash like this, they should direct some of those resources towards making Apple Music actually load the For You, Browse, and Radio tabs.

    (Yes, I know they very likely aren't the same teams responsible.)
