Short bio: 

Khalifa was born on September 8, 1987 in Minot, North Dakota, and released a mixtape in 2005 called "Prince of the City: Welcome to Pistolvania" That paved the way for several prominent music business people to pay attention to his work and for Rolling Stone Magazine to declar him an "Artist to Watch."

He released his debut album "Show and Prove" in 2006, and signed to Warner Bros. Records in 2007. His Eurodance-influenced single, "Say Yeah", received urban radio airplay, charting on the Rhythmic Top 40 and Hot Rap Tracks charts in 2008. Khalifa left Warner Bros shortly after 2006's release and produced his second album "Deal or No Deal" in November 2009. He released the mixtape "Kush and Orange Juice" as a free download in April 2010, and then he signed with Atlantic Records. Khalifa is well known for his debut single for Atlantic, "Black and Yellow", which peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. His debut album for the label, Rolling Papers, was released on March 29, 2011. He followed that album with O.N.I.F.C. on December 4, 2012 and released the singles "Work Hard, Play Hard" and "Remember You". Wiz released his fourth album Blacc Hollywood on August 18, 2014 and a single "We Dem Boyz."

Khalifa credits Jimi Hendrix, Camp Lo, The Notorious B.I.G. and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony as musical influences.
