Cameron Jibril Thomaz born September 8, 1987, Wiz Khalifa a rapper from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Khalifa was born September 8, 1987 in Minot, North Dakota to a mother and a father serving in the military. His parents divorced when Khalifa was about three years old. Because his parents served in the military service this caused Khalifa to live in many places such as Germany, England, and Japan before settling in Pittsburgh attending Taylor Allderdice High School. Khalifa is an Arabic word meaning “successor”, and wisdom, which was shortened to Wiz when Khalifa was fifteen. Khalifa stated to spinner.com that the name also came from being called “young Wiz” because I was good at everything I did. His influences in Hip Hop are Camp Lo, The Notorious B.I.G. and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony.
Wiz Khalifa released his first album, “Show and Prove”, in 2006, and was then signed to Warner Bros. Records in 2007. The song “Say Yeah” was on the Rhythm Top 40 and Hot Rap Tracks charts in 2008. Then Khalifa left Warner Bros and released his second album, Deal or No Deal, in November 2009. He released a mix tape Kush and Orange Juice as a free download online back in April 2010, which became a top trending topic on Twitter and Google. Khalifa was also offered a deal from MayBach Music and Ricky Rosay went as far as sharing his plea during a taping of MTV’s Rap Fix Live. When Khalifa heard the message he was surprised and appreciative. They had a conversation that was described as cool where Khalifa declined the offer. The reason Khalifa claims to turn down the invite was because he wanted to stand behind my own brand being his own Boss. After that he signed with Atlantic Records and his single “Black and Yellow” has become a big hit in 2010, reaching number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100.
I love the joint called “Mezmorized”, its hot! Word of advice to the fella’s this song will get you some good loving! Its gets you relaxed and you feel good like you have no problems in the world. What also makes him a hot artist is the skinny dude has so much swag. If you haven’t noticed watch a few videos and listen to his songs. Never seen or heard of Khalifa in my life until a few months ago, but when I saw his video “Mezmorized” on MTV Jams. He had my all my attention and I was mezmorized, then I wanted to see the video again, just say I was slipping. Yes a different type of rapper, smooth lyrics, sexy flow, tattoos everywhere and he’s has no problem or shame in telling a dude that he’s smoking with and doing his girl I love it…
Legal trouble: Khalifa performed at East Carolina University on November 9, 2010, and was arrested after ECU police smelled marijuana coming from the tour bus and the backstage area of the auditorium. After police searched Khalifa’s tour bus, authorities found 60 grams of marijuana, where he was arrested and charged with marijuana trafficking. A felony count of having a dwelling vehicle placed for sale or storage of marijuana plus a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. Khalifa was released after posting a $300,000 bond, where he then resumed his “Waken Baken Tour” 2010.
Everyone knows Khalifa loves to smoke weed a lot but you would think he has enough sense to know it’s still a drug and you can go to jail even if you are a super star. A lot of stars become too comfortable with their status and think they can break the rules and get away with it time and time again. Lesson learned don’t forget where you come from, marijuana was illegal when you were broke Khalifa and it still is now regardless of everyone’s belief that it’s now a legal drug…Whatever!
