Wiz Khalifa Tickets for Sale
Wiz Khalifa is a very busy man. He has a new son, is working on a new album, and he has just announced a new tour. The new son’s name is Sebastian and it is the first for Wiz and his wife, Amber Rose. The new album is as of yet unnamed, but it is rumored to be out this year. The new tour is called the Under the Influence of Music Tour. Wiz Khalifa tickets will also be concert tickets to see ASAP Rocky and Joey Bada$$.
Fans still yearning for something new from the Pittsburgh rapper will have to make do with the EP he released with Curren$y. Live in Concert is the second time these two rappers have worked together. The first time they worked together they produced a cult classic, this time they have both grown as performers, lyricists, and producers. The result is a potent musical force and what is hopefully just a taste of the quality of the upcoming full-length album.

Wiz Khalifa grew up as Cameron Thomaz, an Army brat, living everywhere from North Dakota to Germany to Japan before settling down in Pittsburgh. There he developed a love for the local sports teams and for hip hop. He took that love for music and developed his lyrical style and adopted a name that demanded he make it big, Wiz Khalifa. The name combines wisdom and the Arabic word for successor.
He lived up to this name by taking part in the local music scene, gaining momentum as he worked on more and more mixed tapes. His first major mixtape was Prince of the City: Welcome to Pistolvania. He released it when he was 17 and managed to earn a little notice from major record labels. A year later he released his first full length album, Show and Prove. This inspired Warner Bros. Records and the independent record label Rostrum Records to show more than interest. It made them sign the artist.
Khalifa became a hit maker almost right away. “Say Yeah” went gold and begat the album Rolling Papers. “Black and Yellow” became an international hit and platinum single, which was joined by “Roll Up” and “No Sleep”. Next came “Young, Wild and Free” for the movie soundtrack for Mac and Devin go to High School and “Work Hard, Play Hard”. This impressive list of songs had made such an impact that no one seemed surprised when Wiz started dating Kanye’s ex, model Amber Rose.
Wiz Khalifa has not forgotten his roots. He still makes appearances on the mixtapes of young rappers and producers from the Pittsburgh area. He has even made sure to invites these aspiring musicians along when organizing tours and releasing Wiz Khalifa tickets. It appears he is going to continue to give back like this as the 21st century continues.
