Born Cameron Jibril Thomaz, Wiz Khalifa is more than a mere M.C. He is a movement and maverick. When rap marketing was primarily focused on street and nightclub promotions, an unsigned yet clairvoyant Wiz decided to share his music with an overlooked demo of suburban and collegiate youth. Rap touring mined newer soil and conceived was the soundtrack for a new generation of free-spirited young hippies — fans as well as up-and-coming MCs. Before his second deal with Atlantic in 2010, Wiz had already amassed a respectable following, fortune and awareness. He was selling out his own 20-city tours and was being crowned “Rookie of the Year” by top media. Meanwhile, his star continues to rise. His 2015 hit, “See You Again,” off the “Fast and Furious” soundtrack, catapulted to the top of the charts. It won a Critics’ Choice Award in the category Best Song and earned three Grammy nominations.
