Wiz Khalifa is one of the biggest hip hop names worldwide. Khalifa, whose real name is Cameron Thomaz, was born in North Dakota in 1987. Following the divorce of his parents, he lived in different places which contributed to his life experience in different cultures from a young age. Music featured in his life early on thanks to his dad’s influence. At age 12, he was already attempting his first recordings. Shortly after he settled down in Pittsburgh, where he got noticed by the label Rostrum Records. His success quickly transcended regional borders as he made an impression on music publications and audiences with the release of the mixtape Prince of the City: Welcome to Pistolvania, and the independent release of his debut album, Show and Prove. His career took off and he became one of the most exciting rappers in the last decade. Between singles, mixtapes and albums like Rolling Papers (2011), O.N.I.F.C. (2012), Blacc Hollywood (2014) and Khalifa (2016), this rapper is regularly in the running for the main pop music awards and streams and sales records: “See You Again” (ft. Charlie Puth) is amongst YouTube most-viewed music videos of all times. After Rolling Papers 2, released in 2018, the musician released another studio album, his seventh, in 2022. Multiverse was recorded in Khalifa’s own studio in Los Angeles and it’s a more mature work that deals with issues such as self-acceptance, fatherhood and emotional growth. Singles “Iced Out Necklace” and “Bad Ass Bitches” prove the artist’s top form. He’ll be in Portugal on 1st July for the next edition of Sumol Summer Fest.
