Wiz Khalifa started recording music when he was 14. In 2005, he released his first mixtape Prince of the City: Welcome to Pistolvania. Wiz dropped "Show and Prove" shortly after and started receiving significant cosigns from XXL, Rolling Stone and VIBE. A deal with Warner Bros. Records soon followed. Wiz Khalifa continued releasing mixtapes and in 2007 released Grow Season and Prince of the City 2, and founded his own label, Taylor Gang Records, in 2008. In 2009, after dissolving with Warner Bros. Wiz Khalifa released Flight School, How Fly and Burn After Rolling. His album Deal or No Deal followed in the fall and debuted at the top of the iTunes hip-hop chart. Once Wiz dropped Kush & Orange Juice in 2010, Wiz Khalifa established himself as one of the rap game's brightest young stars. The release of Kush & Orange Juice placed Wiz as the valedictorian of his "XXL Freshmen 10" class. Wiz Khalifa has continued to release hits like "Black and Yellow," "We Dem Boyz," "See You Again" and more, and has features with some of the biggest artists. His latest release is the three-way project with Three 6 Mafia's Juicy J and super producer TM88, entitled Rude Awakening.
