Biography

Cameron Jibril Thomaz (born September 8, 1987), better known by the stage name Wiz Khalifa, is an American rapper based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He released his debut album, Show and Prove, in 2006, and signed to Warner Bros. Records in 2007. Left his 7 figure deal and became Independent in 2009.

Khalifa was born on September 8, 1987 in Minot, North Dakota to a mother and a father serving in the military. The family moved to Pittsburgh when Khalifa was the age of two. His parents’ military service caused the family to move on a regular basis. Over the last decade, Khalifa lived in the U.S., Germany, England, and Japan. Khalifa has been influenced by artists such as Jay-Z, Cam’ron, and the Notorious B.I.G. His stage name is derived from khalifa, an Arabic word meaning “successor”, and wisdom, which was shortened to Wiz when Khalifa was fifteen.

    I love Wiz. He smokes amber ice. Great music and can roll a sick dubby. If I could smoke with anyone in the world who is alive, it’d be Wiz. The man is a fucking legend for a reason. Oh btw TGOD, I know your defending Wiz, but you need to chill. People have their opinions so you need to simmer down. You’re probably some black guy who yells at your computer screen like a retard, which you’ll do when you read this. Be an adult a just shut the fuck up. It’s the Internet, you aren’t fucking tough. Your just that one dumb fuck who posted that dumb fucking comment. People will read this and laugh at you and agree on how stupid I’m making you look.
