Last night, on Wiz Khalifa Day, Wiz and the Taylor Gang took over Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center for the final stop on the 2050 Tour. The show was filled with excitement as Tuki Carter, Berner, Lola Monroe, Chevy Woods, Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa all put on great performances for the thousands of Taylors on hand. There was energy, excitement, and a lot of weed smoke to satisfy those in attendance. Additionally several Pittsburgh celebrities took in the show including, Girltalk, Mike Wallace, Maurkice Pouncey, and Plaxico Burress.
A pretty cool thing happened last night following Wiz Khalifa’s hometown show in Pittsburgh, PA. This morning a mother called into the Morning Freakshow on 96.1 Kiss where she told a story of her son who is fighting Leukemia. They were given tickets for free and then after the show last night Wiz met with the kid backstage and got a picture. Listen to the full call below where the mother explains in detail everything that happened.
It is important for a story like this to get out following lots of hate toward Wiz Khalifa receiving a proclamation for “Wiz Khalifa Day.” Many people feel that the honor is unwarranted due to Wiz being an outspoken pot smoker. In addition, more criticism has gone to Wiz after local news stations reported last night that Consol Energy Center was filled with weed smoke which led to as many as 7 people being taken to the hospital.
- Shoutout to Mikey and Big Bob who took this call. It was great to meet and talk to them last night at the show!
For the past several weeks we have all been waiting for the new single, “Hate Bein’ Sober” from Chief Keef. The track features Wiz Khalifa & 50 Cent and the video has already been shot. Keef’s album “Finally Rich” is in stores next Tuesday!
Last night, 2 Chainz took his B.O.A.T.S. Tour to Pittsburgh’s Stage AE where he performed in front of a sell out crowd. During his set 2 Chainz brought out Wiz Khalifa for a surprise performance of their collaboration “It’s Nothin.”
Pittsburgh city councilman Bill Peduto brought Wiz Khalifa to Pittsburgh’s City Council this morning where Wiz was recognized for promoting the city of Pittsburgh. Tomorrow, Wednesday, December 12th, 2012, will be donned as “Wiz Khalifa Day” in the city of Pittsburgh. Wiz Khalifa Day will come to a close tomorrow with his 2050 Tour stopping at Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center. This is a huge honor for a rapper from Pittsburgh, Taylors be sure to celebrate this special occasion.
Updated: WTAE released some video from the event. Pretty cool what Wiz had to say about our great city of Pittsburgh. Although it wasn’t a long speech he gave, it was really nice to hear. Watch below:
The clip below features Wiz and Amber talking to the media, Wiz says that his baby will be a Steeler fan haha
Many people expected Wiz Khalifa’s sophomore album, “O.N.I.F.C.” to become Wiz’s first #1 album. However, it was not meant to be as Taylor Swift outsold him by just 2,783 copies with her album “R.E.D.”. The final tallies showed “O.N.I.F.C.” sold 111,823, while “R.E.D.” sold 114,606. Below shows some tweets from Wiz following the news that he would not debut at #1:
Well it doesnt look like we landed #1 on billboard but with all the love, I feel like #1. This is just the start #TaylorsRuleTheWorld
