Wiz Khalifa Performs ‘See You Again’ on Jimmy Fallon
Wiz Khalifa has embedded himself rather seamlessly in the fabric of American pop culture--no small feat for a lanky guy from Pittsburgh who mostly just wants to get high. Last night (March 16) on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Blacc Hollywood rapper performed "See You Again," his single from the soundtrack to the upcoming movie Furious 7. Joined on stage by collaborator Charlie Puth, Wiz ran through the new record with the poise of someone how has been one of hip-hop's premier draws in arenas and at festivals for quite some time now. Later in tihe evening, he even joined Fallon, Miles Teller and The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons for what we can only assume was a heated game of Catchphrase. When the Taylor Gang general was asked about his favorite song from Taylor Swift’s catalog of hit records, it took Wiz nearly the entire round to guess as Miles tried his best to explain Swift’s hit record “Shake It Off” (watch below).
Wiz's name stays bouncing around the headlines of music and gossip publications alike. Last September, he finalized his very public divorce from model and now author Amber Rose, his wife of a little over a year with whom he has one son. In the wake of that turmoil, it was briefly reported that Wiz had a sex tape with a Playboy playmate, Carla Howe. His most recent album, Blacc Hollywood, spawned several hits, most notably "We Dem Boyz," which became a major sensation, and now sports a remix featuring Schoolboy Q, Rick Ross and Nas. Though he had a smattering of mixtapes and Warner-released albums before then, Khalifa's rise began in earnest with the 2010 release of his mixtape Kush & Orange Juice.
