Wiz Khalifa dropped his new music video Black and Yellow. It takes place all over Pittsburgh, from Waterfront to Downtown. Wiz is blowing up and despite his rise to fame he hasn’t forgotten about his love for the Burgh. The video is on MTV and the new single is getting radio play nationwide. The colorway of the Steel City is being repeated on iPods across the globe. Wiz Khalifa is not only bringing freshness to the rap game, but also to Pittsburgh. Out with the gold, in with the yellow.

Another excellent video from Bill Paladino.

Black and Yellow lyrics:

Yeah ah ha
You know what it is
Black and yellow, black and yellow
Black and yellow, black and yellow

Yeah ah ha, you know what it is
Everything I do, I do it big
Yeah ah ha, screaming that’s nothin
When I pulled out of the lot, that’s nothin
Step up in my town when you see me you know everything
Black and yellow, black and yellow
Black and yellow, black and yellow
I put it down from my whip to my diamonds
Black and yellow, black and yellow
Black and yellow, black and yellow
Black and yellow, black and yellow

Uh, black stripe, yellow paint
I hear their scared scared of it but them hoes aint
Soon as I hit the club look at them hoes face
Put the pedal once make the floor shake
Suede inside, my engine roaring
It’s the big boy you know what I paid for it
And I got the pedal to the metal
Got you out here checking game I’m balling out on every level
Hear them haters talk but there’s nothing you can tell em
Just made a million, got another million on my schedule
No love for em boy I’m breaking hearts
No keys, push to start

[Chorus]

Got a call from my jeweler this just in
And women love me cuz Im messin’ with their best friends
Not a lesbian but she a freak though
This ain’t for one night I’m shining all week hoe
I’m sippin’ Clicquot and rocking yellow diamonds
So many rocks up in my watch I can’t tell what the time is
Got a pocket full of big faces
Throw it up cuz everybody that I’m with tailored

[Chorus]

Stay high like how I’m supposed to do
That crowd underneath them clouds can’t get close to you
And my car look unapproachable
Super clean but its super mean
She wanna ride with them cats
Smoke weed count stacks
Get fly and take trips and that’s that
Real rap, I let her get high if she want she feel that
Convertible drop feel, ’87 the top peel back

Yeah ah ha
you know what it is
Black and yellow, black and yellow
Black and yellow, black and yellow

Some Wiz Khalifa facts:

What does his name mean?
Wiz is short for wisdom and Khalifa means successor.

Did he go to high school in Pittsburgh?
Yes, Taylor Allderdice in Squirrel Hill

Is that where he got the name for Taylor Gang?
No, Taylor Gang is said to be named after his favorite sneakers – Chuck Taylor All-Stars

What is Taylor Gang? Is it a rap group?
It’s not a rap group. Taylor Gang started out as his close group of friends who all wore Chuck Taylor shoes and later became anyone associated with Wiz’s production crew, his DJ for example. Now Taylor Gang is everyone within Wiz Khalifa’s growing fanbase.

Taylor Gang or?
Taylor Gang or move to Baltimore.

Does Wiz still wear his Pittsburgh chain?
The P chain made an appearance in the Black and Yellow video but it wasn’t around his neck. So we’re going to say no he doesn’t wear the Pittsburgh chain anymore because it was time for an upgrade – he upgraded his watch as a birthday gift to himself.

The only gripe we have with the video is when they show the steel building with 4 ugly ass glowing letters on top. Come on Bill, didn’t you read this? That’s ok, we fixed it for you above.
