The people of Pittsburgh have been waiting some time for its first major Hip-Hop star to break onto the scene. That wait may now be over. Recently signed to Warner Bros Records, Wiz Khalifa is ready to take the next step from local hype to international stardom.
At the tender age of 18, Wiz Khalifa has already developed into the prodigy that Pittsburgh has been looking for, and he plans to represent his city to the fullest.
With a vaired cultural upbringing [his military parents reassignments saw him move between Pittsburgh, South Carolina, Georgia, Oklahoma, Germany, Japan and even England] and a maturity beyond his years, Wiz has utilised his nomadic life and vast experiences to broaden his mind and create his inspiration for his music.
His recording life started around the age of 14 and soon after his music generated a local buzz that led him to look for a studio and record label situation. Having found ID LABS and its owner Eric Dan he was soon being networked around Pittsburgh and signed with fellow Pittsburgh native, Benjy Grinberg of Rostrum Records.
With the studio facilities and the backing of several influential local people he started to take his music to the masses and has been acclaimed in a host of Print and Online media outlets. Having already record over two albums worth of material, released a debut mixtape "Prince Of The City" and even creating the theme song for the Pittsburgh Steelers Joey Porter Show - Wiz Khalifa is now signed to Warner Bros and starting work on his debut album.
We have the first track to come out of the new deal courtesy of Warner Bros Records for download below entitled "Talk To Me" which features T-Pain.

Wiz Khalifa has the means and the mindset to become a force in todays musical climate and Dubcnn will be keeping you up to date on his activities this year; in the meantime you can check him out over at MySpace.
