MTV Artist To Watch 2011: Wiz Khalifa discusses New Single / Q & A With Wiz…

Wiz Khalifas “Black And Yellow” is the surprise hit of 2010. The infectious, unforgettable Pittsburgh anthem pays tribute to Wizs hometown, using the Pittsburgh Steelers colors as inspiration for his once-you-hear-it-youll-never-forget-it chorus.

The success of “Black And Yellow” (which recently got the all-star remix treatment with Snoop Dogg, T-Pain and Three 6 Mafias Juicy J.) might be the first time many folks have heard the creaky, charismatic musings of Wiz Khalifa, but to underground hip-hop fans its just the latest in a long line of rap anthems.

With countless solo mixtapes (particularly Kush & Orange Juice) and albums (Flight School) under his belt and a popular collaborative mixtape between himself and Curren$y (How Fly), Wiz Khalifa has been turning heads for a couple of years now.

With a style that splits the difference between skater and hip-hop kid and a flow that adds East Coast lyricism to Snoop Doggs masterful murmurs, you can see and hear why MTV News named Wiz Khalifa the Hottest Breakthrough MC of 2010. And with his major label debut due out next year, it looks like 2011 will be the Pittsburgh-repping MCs biggest year yet.

While he still has no timetable on when his Atlantic Records-sponsored album will drop, Wiz did speak to MTV and revealed that the follow-up to his gold-selling single “Black & Yellow” will be called “Roll Up,” not the song “Taylor Gang” which he debuted last weekend. I was, surprisingly, not expecting a song titled that.
