Wiz Khalifa Celebrates 25th Birthday With News of #wizbud
Wiz Khalifa celebrates his 25th birthday today with the news of #wizbud. No, sadly, it’s not a new strain of red-eye chronic honoring the Taylor Gang boss, but the pet meme for the little bundle of joy that’s on the way.
Earlier this week at the MTV Video Music Awards, the Pittsburgh rapper and his fiancée Amber Rose confirmed the rumors that they were expecting their first baby together.
“We found out this summer, and it was more of a celebration than anything,” the rapper told MTV at the awards show. “I did a backflip; she was doing this little dance that we made up.”
Along with the little #wizbud that’s due in six months, Khalifa’s lady revealed on Twitter some other gifts she has in store for her man on his 25th. If you read between the lines, it’s apparent that Khalifa is about to have himself a significantly better birthday than last year.
“Happy Birthday to thee most amazing man in the world,” Rose tweeted Saturday morning. “I love u more than you’ll ever know ur my King & I bow to u … Now its time to make him breakfast in bed and spoil him rotten all day! I love my baby so much he deserves the world.”
It’s hard to believe that Khalifa only blew up on the rap scene two years ago, following the release of his stoner-friendly Kush and Orange Juice mixtape. While the tape’s legit follow-up — the major label debut “Rolling Papers” — produced the hits “Black & Yellow” and the laid back “Roll Up,” it still received mixed reviews, due to unreasonably high expectations. Khalifa’s next release, O.N.I.F.C. (an acronym for “Only Ni**a In First Class”) is set to drop Sept. 18, and it features the Prince of Pistolvania working with a completely different group of producers and guest artists. Check out VIBE’s list of why we think Wiz’s next album is going to be better than his first here.
On a side note, Wiz recently showed up on the new track “Goin’ Places” with fellow Pittsburgh native and touring partner Mac Miller. The track isn’t “new” but an unreleased cut off Fast Eddie’s new Live From the 412 Volume 5 mixtape, which you can stream below.
