Wiz Khalifa’s positive energy has made him one of my personal favorites every since our first meeting in Warner Brothers’ Atlanta offices.

A lot has happened in the months since Wiz and I chatted in that conference room.
In addition to his being attached by the tongue to Amber Rose, Wiz has been gettin’ busy with his Rolling Papers Tour, ‘which rolled up’ to the ATL yesterday (July 12, 2011).
The event was held at the historic Masquerade venue, which is only so big on the inside, but Wiz and Big Sean performed in an outside setting, where fans were treated to a rock star concert in the sunshine.
A few of Atlanta’s top DJ’s came through in support of the tour…
DJ Drama, Drummaboy, DJ Holiday, DJ Infamous

Wiz Khalifa attended the 2011 BET Awards last weekend with his arm piece Amber Rose.
The two “hot bods” were inseparable and definitely coordinated their outfits well but am I the only one who’s tired of seeing these two swap spit every time there’s a camera around?
I honestly used to LOVE me some Wiz but since he’s being germinated by Amber every second of the day… well… now not so much.

I almost feel the need to type NSFW to display the remaining photos simply because of the excessive use of tongue but if y’all like it… I love it!

Wiz Khalifa dumped Amber Rose for Diddy’s girl Cassie… well almost but not really.
Cassie plays Wiz’s love interest in the official video for “Roll Up,” the second single from his major label debut Rolling Papers. The video was filmed in the sunny California on Venice Beach.
In my one on one with Wiz (click here if you missed it), he described himself as “very tall & very high.” He also revealed that the blonde patch in his hair was merely a fashion statement that “they used to do in the 80’s”.
So it’s no wonder Cassie’s shaved temples combined with Wiz’s blonde patch make a really cute couple!
Directed by Jake Davis, the clip opens as Cassie her friends catch Wiz’s eye while hanging out at the beach. They run into each other again later on the basketball court and spend the afternoon holding hands and watching the sunset over the water.
“She’s really, really dope in the video. Just her movement and her following, I felt like it’s just real positive and it matches what we represent.
For the type of chick that we were representing, like a really bossy chick, a chick who has some stuff going, it felt like Cassie was perfect for it.”

Lawrence Washington aka “Miss Lawrence” ripped the purple carpet of BET’s “Rip the Runway” last week. The self-professed “closet freak” has been making the rounds recently after his hot new single blasted off.

A party ain’t a party without Dwight Eubanks and a special “stunting” acknowledgment goes to Foxy Brown’s blue contact lenses.
Also spotted were Fabolous, Wiz Khalifa, Lola Monroe & more. Judging from the photos, BET’s “Rip the Runway” is gonna be a hoot!

Wiz Khalifa hit up StraightFromTheA yesterday as one of his many stops to promote his upcoming album “Rolling Papers.”
Not only does the “Black & Yellow” MC have the hottest song on repeat from coast to coast, but he has officially hit the blogs running over the past few months. Khalifa’s hot single has been dubbed the #1 song in the country, but only after he gained his mandatory hip-hop mugshot after getting busted with a bus load of weed back in November.
All press is good press right? And to add fuel to his already burning flame, Wiz has been linked to hip-hop’s most notorious arm piece, Amber Rose.
Photos of the couple have been making the blog rounds all week courtesy of a recent feature in Fader Magazine and a bitter tweet from Amber’s ex… Kanye West.
A number #1 song, several hot mixtapes, a movie on deck, a hot broad and a highly anticipated major label debut should give anyone the “big head” but Wiz Khalifa is surprisingly level headed and calm in the midst of all his rising fame.

B.o.B., Whiz Khalifa & Bruno Mars cover the February/March 2011 issue of Vibe Magazine.
Vibe refers to the trio as “The New Pop Music” and offers the follwing explanation:
“…each of them has taken their own sound and infiltrated the masses thereby making them figures in popular culture and pop music. Don’t front, you know you can turn to any Top 40 music station and hear their music.”
I guess they’re right. These three have infiltrated R&B, Pop AND Hip-Hop. It’s a beautiful thing!
