How much money is Wiz Khalifa worth?? A number one album with ‘Blacc Hollywood’ and a nation wide tour has Wiz Khalifa’s pockets fat once again this year. Today, the Forbes Hip Hop Cash Kings list was unveiled and Wiz Khalifa took the #12 spot, raking in over $13 million.
A veteran of FORBES’ Cash Kings and 30 Under 30 lists, Khalifa’s latest album, Blacc Hollywood, debuted at No. 1 on the charts. The Pittsburgh native also cashes in on live gigs—about 50 in our scoring period—and deals with the likes of Converse and Eleven Paris. “I don’t see this as time to slow down or chill out,” explained Khalifa, now a married man with a baby son. “I see it as a time to go harder because I’ve got new motivation.”
Drake & Lil Wayne took their ‘Drake vs. Lil Wayne’ tour to Los Angeles this week. During his time on stage, Drake brought out a special guest when Wiz Khalifa blessed the stage to the rhythm of his banger, “We Dem Boyz“.
Wow, this came out of nowhere and saddens us all.
According to TMZ, Amber Rose & Wiz Khalifa have split as Amber is seeking a divorce. The divorce documents reveal that the couple broke up on Monday due to “irreconcilable differences.”
Amber wants full legal and physical custody of their song, Sebastian, but is willing to let Wiz visit the child whenever.
Just a few weeks ago, on the 8th of September, Amb and Wiz celebrated their one year anniversary. While Hollywood’s most lovable couple appears to be no more, we can only hope that in the end everything works out for both Wiz and Amb, as well as their son, Bash.
That’s all we’re going to say, because we don’t like getting into the personal lives of celebrities too much as that is their business. However, this was a huge story and needed to be reported. Head on over to TMZ for more.

Earlier this week, on September 16th, Wiz Khalifa’s classic mixtape, ‘Star Power’, turned 6 years old. Since it’s an anniversary of sorts, it’s only right this weeks ‘Khalifa Throwback Thursday‘ takes us back to that release.
Throughout the tape, Wiz had many original tracks mixed in with a few great freestyles/remixes. On track #18 Wiz & his partner in crime, Chevy Woods (Kev Tha Hustler at the time), slapped out a remix to R. Kelly’s, “Hair Braider”, and created “Weed Roller.”
Wiz really KILLED this hook!

For the newest ‘DayToday‘, go with Wiz Khalifa and the Taylor Gang on their travels to St. Lous, MO and Alburquerque, NM for part 4 of the ‘Under The Influence Of Music Tour III‘.
Recently, Wiz Khalifa sat down with Pitchfork to play a game of “Over/Under.” Some of the questions that Wiz answers with “underrated” or “overrated” included – smoking weed in space, marriage, dream catchers and more.
Wiz NEEDS to be the first person to smoke weed in space.
Wiz Khalifa’s mug take the spot on the cover of The Source’s annual Power 30 issue. For the cover story, Wiz spoke on the balance between being a father and being a musician and who inspires him musically.
On balancing his career and being a father:
The hardest part is being away from my son at any point in time. I want to spend all day with him, all night, I want to wake up with him, feed him, teach him everything, it’s just not humanly possible.
On his musical inspirations:
I remember like Bob Marley, he listened to a lot of Prince, he really listened to everything my dad’s music was like a wide range, all the hits all the classics. He still puts me onto stuff, I mean when I was doing Kush & Orange Juice the reason I did David Ruffin for the cover was because of my dad. I mean I knew The Temptations, everyone knows The Temptations but my dad had really showed me David Ruffin’s solo career, and the stuff he was doing, we sat down and we listened to those records and it was just like a spiritual thing, and I was able to like put that on to the world as well.
The issue will hit stands soon!
For this weeks ‘Khalifa Throwback Thursday‘ joint, chose “The Thrill” from Wiz Khalifa’s 2009 release, ‘Burn After Rolling’. This one was loved by Taylors for its great party vibes and most notably the “Wake Up Drunk, Go To Sleep Fucked Up” line.
As you may or may not know, the song used Empire Of The Sun’s “Walking On A Dream” as a sample. That tune with Wiz on it was an instant match made in heaven, creating a classic Khalifa banger. Enjoy this weeks throwback.
