Since his 2011 release of Rolling Papers, Wiz Khalifa has cemented himself among this generation’s rap superstars. The Pittsburgh native, building his musical career since 2005 has proven his abilities as an artist, actor, and entrepreneur, transforming Taylor Gang, his fan community into a full entertainment company offering label, management, production and film services.
