Pittsburgh native Cameron Thomaz, better known as Wiz Khalifa, took the rap world by storm in 2011 with the release of his triple-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.
In March 2011, Wiz released his major label debut, Rolling Papers, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Rap and Top R&B/Hip-Hop charts and No. 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, Roll Up and No Sleep. After a year full of major, sold-out headlining tours, including his February 2011 show at the WVU Coliseum, Wiz teamed up with rap veteran Snoop Lion for a collaborative album, Mac And Devin Go To High School Soundtrack, which features the platinum hit Young, Wild & Free (featuring 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 Black And Yellow.“
