Biography

Pittsburgh, United States (2002 – present)

Cameron Jibril Thomaz (born September 8, 1987 in Minot, North Dakota), better known by his stage name Wiz Khalifa, is an American rapper based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, signed to Rostrum Records. According to the Black and Yellow Songfacts, his stage name is derived from khalifa, an Arabic word meaning “successor”, and wisdom. His nickname growing up was “Wizard” which was shortened to Wiz when Khalifa was fifteen.

In 2005 he released his first official mixtape, Prince of the City: Welcome to Pistolvania, and later in 2006 he released his first full length street album entitled Show and Prove. Since then he has released a further six mixtapes and a collaboration mixtape titled How Fly with friend Curren$y. He released his debut album, Deal or No Deal, in November of 2009, it reached #1 on the iTunes hip hop chart, and then reached the top ten on iTunes’ overall album chart the week it was released. Previously signed to Warner Bros. Records, he left the label in July 2009 after numerous delays in releasing his planned debut album for the label, First Flight. Khalifa stated to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that, “I learned a lot during my time there and matured as an artist during the process. I’m happy to be moving on with all of my material and having the chance to be in control of my next moves”.He is also the founder of the rap crew Taylor Gang, which includes friends Kev Tha Hustler, Ekko, Smallz Money and Gene Stovall. They derived the name from the fact they always used to wear Chuck Taylor shoes.

    Я чёт прикола не уловила. Т.е. если исполнителя слушают 15-летние девочки и младше, это чё, получается клеймо на артисте и слушать его позорно? Это вообще чё за тупой бред? Никогда вот не понимала аргумента всяких ебанатов наподобе: "как тебе не стыдно слушать *** его(её) же слушают только малолетки до 15!" Пздц господа.

    Evilhasears, у него охуенный продакшн зачастую, ему хорошо даются всяческие хитовые незамысловатые треки. Да, попса, да, пятнадцатилетним девочкам нравится. Но это неважно. Может, как рэпер, он и не хватает звезд с неба, но слушать его элементарно приятно.

    @Hate_Worldwide, заскроблено - не значит котирую. Ну а по сути, серьезно, слушал, не понимаю чем он может цеплять, чем нравится?
