Rap sensation Wiz Khalifa is often known more for his colorful private life as he is for his widely-acclaimed music. Despite various brushes with the law on possession raps, Wiz is currently hitting the road on his new tour to promote his latest album, Blacc Hollywood. As one of this new generation's growing crop of young rap artists, it's quite possible that he will one day usurp the likes of Snoop Dogg for the weed-rap crown.
Discovered when he was just 16-years old, US rapper and hip hop star Wiz Khalifa is a rags-to-riches tale and he isn't afraid to show it. The controversial musician sings about issues, from his love for his ex-wife to his love of green, well, have a listen to his album and you'll be able to work that out.
Citing Jimi Hendrix, Camp Lo, The Notorious B.I.G. and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony as musical influences, Khalifa has carved out a large niche for himself in this new generation of promising young rap artists alongside Tyga, L'il Wayne and 2Chains.
In 2012 Khalifa released his second full studio album Only Nigga In First Class (abbreviated as O.N.I.F.C. for release to mainstream markets), which debuted at number two with 131,000 in first week sales. From that album his single "Work Hard, Play Hard" went platinum.
