Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang label continues its assault on the music industry in 2014. On March 11th, we will get an official mixtape release from the talented female r&b singer, Courtney Noelle.
Now, if you’ve paid attention to TG music over the past year or so, you’ve without a doubt heard her voice. But now we will get 12 brand new tracks with ‘Love On The Run.‘ Shown after the break is the tracklist for the project, immediately what jumps out is the prominent producers and fellow TG artists features. Notable production credits on this release include Sledgren, E. Dan, Ricky P and Terrace Martin. While, Ty Dolla $ign, Chevy Woods, Wiz Khalifa & Juicy J are the fellow TG artists to join her.
Nick Cannon’s comedic hip hop show, ‘Wild ‘N Out‘ is set to return for a 6th season this summer. Today it was announced and several rap superstars will join in for the fun including Rick Ross, The ASAP Mob, Riff Raff, Nelly, and Wiz Khalifa amongst others.
The always hilarious show pits a rapper on a team against Nick Cannon’s team. Teams get points based on how they do in a series of rap freestyle games. The team who earns the most points at the end of the show is named the winner. To close out the show, the guest artist always performs one of their hit tracks. You can bet that Wiz will be doing a track of his from ‘Blacc Hollywood.’
Many of you are probably unfamiliar with Pittsburgh’s KH, who is set to drop his new mixtape, ‘Viva’ on February 18th. Today, KH revealed the back cover with the tracklisting to the project which is now promising to be a Pittsburgh classic. Included on the tape will be 12 tracks with features from FTR Drama, Truely AP, Courtney Noelle, Owey and Wiz Khalifa amongst others. Most of the production will be handled by Ricky P, with Sledgren producing two songs.
Just looking at the tracklist what immediately stands out is the final track. “Back Around” is set to feature two Taylor Gang artist in Courtney Noelle and Wiz Khalifa in addition it is produced by TG’s own Sledgren.
Ty Dolla $ign has taken full advantage off the hype his single “Paranoid” has given. So far he’s released the version with B.o.B., one with Diddy & Rick Ross, one with Trey Songz, French Montana, & DJ Mustard, and he still has one more to go!
In an interview today with Sway, Ty revealed that he has another remix of “Paranoid” on the way, this time featuring his Taylor Gang boss, Wiz Khalifa & the smooth singing voice of The Weeknd.
Wiz Khalifa gets money! Forbes gives of us proof and details of the rappers earnings once again in this years, ’30 Under 30.’ The following is what they had to say regarding Wiz:
“My flow’s so sick you might want to absorb this,” the Pittsburgh native rapped last year. “Best believe every year young Khalifa gonna make that Forbes list.” He has, for the third consecutive year, while raking in $14 million from strong sales of his music, merch and concert tickets.
In an unfortunate incident, Wiz Khalifa’s uncle, Imani Porter, was shot and killed at The Waterfront in Pittsburgh. The incident occurred at the parking lot of Steak’n Shake at around 8 pm. Porter was sitting in his car in the lot, when a bullet struck his head. He was just 20 years old.
At this point in time, Police are searching for at least two suspects, who fled the scene by foot and were picked up down the road. For full details on the incident, head on over to KDKA.
Wiz Khalifa tweeted out the following words, regarding the incident:
We, at KhalifaFans, send out prayers and condolences to the Porter’s and their extended family.
