Ending his 50 show tour this weekend in Seattle, Wiz Khalifa has done something amazing. Beginning Without co-signs from popular artists or a major Hip Hop label behind him, he sold out 47 of 50 shows across the US. As his buzz built, of course other artists came out to speak, but the Wiz Khalifa movement is authentic.
Comparable to 50 Cent’s buzz in the streets around 2002, the difference between the two artists’ hype is content and audience appeal. Wiz Khalifa is from a more current generation that wears fitted clothing and have a relaxed attitude. Rapping about tattoos, smoking, the date game, and more makes fans from all walks relate to Wiz.
Coming off the success of new hip hop mixtape “Kush and Orange Juice,” Wiz Khalifa has a major game plan for the remainder of 2010. It’s reported the Pittsburgh Hip Hop music artist signed to Atlantic Records. If true, he is now at the label that is home to rappers TI, B.O.B., Plies, Lupe Fiasco, and more.
