Wiz Khalifa Taking Over!

13 Feb

It seems that  Pittsburgh’s own Wiz Khalifa is having his name dropped in almost every other issue of Entertainment Weekly that I receive.

This week, (the 2.18.11 issue) on page 76 he gives Pittsburgh, and the Steelers, a “black-and-yellow” shout-out.  (Despite the debate on whether or not the song  has anything to do  or should have anything to do with the Steelers.)  In previous issues he’s been touted as who to watch, and the hottest up-and-coming artist in the rap game. (His name was first mentioned in the esteemed mag back in 2009.)

It is no surprise – Khalifa is getting press everywhere. He recently appeared on the George Lopez Tonight Show and the BET 106 and Park show. (with  my friend, DJ Bonics, nonetheless!)

HIs fans include the likes of Snoop Dogg and more. Keep your eye (and ears!) on this Pittsburgh phenom as he continues to make his name in the world of rap.

Khalifa’s album, “Rolling Papers” is due to hit stores – and iTunes – on March 29th. Just a couple of days ago, he tweeted a link to his next single, “Taylor Gang.” Last year, he was the winner of the MTV News Hottest Breakthrough MC contest and is currently on tour nationwide.
