Cameron Jbril Thomaz is better known as the American rapper Wiz Khalifa. He was born in Minot, North Dakota, in 1987. For the first 9 years of his life, he travelled around with his parents, who were both active in the military. He started writing his first songs at 13 and, just three years later, he recorded his first tracks in a Pittsburgh studio. Not long after, he was signed by the label Rostrum Records, which gave rise to his debut album, Show and Prove, in 2006. It was a big hit with the student community and Rolling Stone magazine hailed him as an artist with huge promise. Around this time, he brought out several mix tapes and a first single, Say Yeah, in 2008, which got into the Rhythmic Top 40 and Hot Rap Tracks charts. In 2009, he was the opening act for Wu-Tang Clan and released his second album, Deal or No Deal. Wiz Khalifa has worked with various other rappers, including Snoop Dogg, Lauryn Hill and A Tribe Called Quest. In 2011, he brought out his third album, Rolling Papers, and many of the singles released from it (Black and Yellow, to name one) were a big success. Two other albums, O.N.I.F.C. and Blacc Hollywood followed. Most recently, in 2015, he featured heavily in the score of Fast & Furious 7, performing on Go Hard Or Go Home, with Iggy Azalea, and See You Again, starring Charlie Puth on piano. This song, backed by a video release, in April 2015, is a heartfelt tribute to Fast & Furious star, Paul Walker, who died in a car accident in 2013.
