Wiz Khalifa

Rapper

An Army kid who's lived in Germany, England and Japan because of his military parents, this Pittsburgh-based rhymer is often compared to Snoop Dogg because of his lanky physique and laid-back flow. Born Cameron Jibril Thomaz, Wiz was tagged as a New Artist to Watchby Rolling Stone magazine following the release of his first album, Show and Prove, in 2006. That LP's buzz and his 2005 mixtape Prince of the City: Welcome to Pistolvania helped the young MC land a contract with Warner Bros. After a leadoff single "Say Yeah," Wiz grew frustrated at the label's delays in releasing his album. Parting ways with Warner, Wiz signed with Atlantic Records in 2010, finally scoring a hit with the single Black and Yellow. On March 1, 2012, he married Amber Rose; the couple had a son, Sebastian Taylor Thomaz on February 21, 2013. On December 4, 2012, he released his sophomore album O.N.I.F.C. In September 2014, Rose filed for divorce.
