The estimated 2015 net worth of American rapper and musician Cameron Jibril “Wiz Khalifa” Thomaz is $55 million dollars. With his youthful swagger and harsh yet captivating execution of rhymes, Wiz Khalifa became a rising sensation in the late-2000s hip-hop scene.
In an effort to boost Pittsburgh’s hip-hop reputation, he drew on inspirations from the East Coast to develop a sound that was particularly Pittsburghian. “Black and Yellow” is Wiz Khalifa’s best-known song, having peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. Rolling Papers, his label debut, came out on March 29th, 2011.
Pittsburgh’s most famous rapper has been on a nonstop tour since his smash track “Black and Yellow,” doing more than 100 performances between 2010 and 2011. A strong merchandise business based on his identity as a marijuana fanatic has added to his financial resources. He ranked eleventh on Forbes’ list of the richest people in the world, making $11 million.
Cameron Jibril Thomaz, better known as Wiz Khalifa, was born on September 8, 1987, in Minot, North Dakota. When he was three, his parents divorced because they were both serving in the military.
His family relocated frequently because of his parents’ military career. Before arriving in Pittsburgh with his mother in 1996, Khalifa lived in Japan, the United Kingdom, and Germany. Soon after moving to Pittsburgh, Khalifa began writing and performing his own music.
As a 15-year-old, Khalifa started recording his own music. The recording studio where he recorded his songs was so taken by his lyrics that they allowed him to record them for free.
Benjy Grinberg, the founder, and CEO of Rostrum Records discovered Khalifa at the age of 16 in 2004. Wiz signed a recording and management contract with Grinberg.
When Wiz Khalifa was 16 years old, he signed with Rostrum Records, his first record company. In 2007, Khalifa signed a recording contract with Warner Bros. Records after releasing multiple mixtapes on the label.
Khalifa has collaborated with a wide range of musicians, including The Game, David Banner, and Play-n-Skillz, under Warner Bros. Records.
Although he departed the label in 2009, he remained on the roster of Rostrum Records. His career took off the following year after signing with Atlantic Records when he began working with more well-known performers.
This was the year he released the smash hit single ‘Black and Yellow,’ and his career took off from there. Billboard’s ‘Top 100’ lists frequently feature Khalifa’s singles.
It’s presently projected that Wiz Khalifa’s net worth stands at $60 million as of 2022.
