Born Cameron Thomaz, but better known as Wiz Khalifa, the 24-year old Pittsburgh native took the rap world by storm in 2011 with the release of his 3x-platinum hit “Black And Yellow”. The track later went on to become the unofficial anthem for the Pittsburgh Steelers and helped catapult Wiz to another level of rap superstardom. Get your tickets at Live Nation or Ticketmaster.

In March 2011, Wiz released his major label debut, Rolling Papers, which debuted atop Billboard’s “Top Rap” and “Top R&B/Hip-Hop” charts and #2 on the “Top 200 Albums” chart. The album has gone on to reach gold-certification and has spawned 3 multi-platinum singles; “Black And Yellow” (3X Platinum), “Roll Up” (1X Platinum), “No Sleep” (1X Platinum).

Wiz also became a fixture on the road embarking on 3 major sold-out headlining tours this year. Wiz teamed up with rap veteran Snoop Dogg for a collaborative album, Mac And Devin Go To High School Soundtrack, which features the platinum hit, “Young, Wild & Free (feat. Bruno Mars).” To top off an incredible year, Wiz was recently nominated for TWO Grammy Awards, in the “Best Rap Song” and “Best Rap Performance” categories for his breakout smash hit, “Black And Yellow.
