Wiz Khalifa is the rapper who is fast gaining a reputation for his eerie mix of mid-tempo grooves and glass-shattering bass — not to mention an impressive smattering of tattoos.

The Pittsburgh native, who is currently taking America by storm with his track "Black and Yellow" from the upcoming album Rolling Papers, clearly likes his herbal remedies (think Snoop Dogg in his Death Row heyday), and seems to be thriving at new label Atlantic Records, having parted ways with Warner Bros in 2009.

Unlike many industry-backed artists of late, the buzz around Khalifa isn't sudden or contrived; he already boasts an impressive fanbase thanks to his mixtape back catalog (Kush And OJ is a good place to start).
