For years, Wiz Khalifa has kept the streets of Pittsburgh hot with his mixtapes and street albums. Last year, he decided it was time to introduce himself to the world. Following the release of his breakout hit, “Black & Yellow,” Rick Ross attempted to sign Wiz to his Maybach Music roster. While Wiz Khalifa entertained the idea of going with Maybach Music, he eventually signed with Atlantic Records in a joint deal with Rostrum Records.
Throughout the fall of 2010, “Black & Yellow” enjoyed a generous amount of radio play and the song helped build Wiz Khalifa into one of the biggest rappers on the planet. In the spring of 2011, Wiz prepared his full-length debut album, Rolling Papers. The album boasted another hit, “Roll Up,” which was released during the spring. In the time since the release of the album, Wiz Khalifa has risen to become one of the most-discussed names and his album has gone gold.
Less than a year since the official release of Rolling Papers, Wiz Khalifa is already working on new music. In the works, Wiz has his second album, which he announced as O.N.I.F.C. Obviously, the album title is an acronym, but Wiz did not reveal what it stands for. Aside from his own album, Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang will be releasing a new mixtape, which will be called Taylor Allerdice. The title of the mixtape is actually a reference to the high school Wiz Khalifa attended in Pittsburgh.
