Wiz Khalifa: Artist of the Year

Now  we don’t really  do many huge personal opinion write-ups around here like most blogs do, but this time I had to. I have never seen an artist take his talents as far as Wiz Khalifa has all by himself. This man single handedly took the whole Taylor Gang and turned it into an empire. I have been to two of his shows and unlike most artists, it is a different feel every time. A lot of these cats out here have the same stage routine every damn show they do and if you go to more than one  it can get very repetitive. Wiz does something new every time and knows how to please his audience. Of course there are Wiz Khalifa haters out there but that’s expected. The most impressive thing to me about the wizzle man is how close he is to his fans. Even while he’s surrounded by cameras, record executives, and other artists he still manages to keep up with his fans on twitter and make them feel as if he’s is there with them. When trying to book Wiz last year I remember hearing ” He’s sold out 48 of his 50 shows this past year.” Which is pretty damn impressive considering the fact that he wasn’t even signed to Atlantic yet. His hit single “Black and Yellow” just went gold and was the number one song on i-Tunes. I don’t know about you Fresh Followers but I have been listening to Wiz since the start, but now Black and Yellow got him even more fans.

He is currently working on a remix of the song ( new verse) with Snoop Dogg, T-Pain, and Juicy Jay. This is the hardest working man in the music industry right now and he has done it all on his own. Constantly doing shows,photo shoots, interviews, shooting music videos, making appearances isn’t as easy as it looks. He is working non-stop and has made it to the top, but according to Weezy there are no ceilings and I see Wiz going up and up until he’s done with all of this. Congrats to Wiz Khalifa on the Golden Track and you my friend get artist of the year on Fresh University.

Here’s what Wiz has been up to lately, this 11-minute interview is a tell all of the road, his favorite herb, and new moves he is making. Check the footage below.
