Khalifa was discovered at age 16 in 2004 by Benjy Grinberg, the founder and President of Rostrum Records. Grinberg signed Wiz to a recording and management deal.


In 2005, Khalifa released "Prince of the City: Welcome to Pistovania," his first mixtape. That led to his debut album "Show and Prove" in 2006. That same year, Rolling Stone called Khalifa an "artist to watch." He released two more mixtapes with Rostrum Records: "Grow Season" in July 2007 and "Prince of the City 2" in November 2007. That same year, he signed with Warner Bros. Records and released the single "Say Yeah." In September 2008, he released the mixtape "Star Power" and in April 2009 "Flight School," both through Rostrum Records.

Khalifa left Warner Bros. Records in the summer of 2009 after delays in releasing his planned debut album for the label "First Flight." His first big hit single was "Black and Yellow," which peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. As of 2020, Khalifa has released seven studio albums: 2006's "Show and Prove," 2009's "Deal or No Deal," 2011's "Rolling Papers," 2011's "Mac & Devin Go To High School" (with Snoop Dogg), 2012's "O.N.I.F.C., 2014's "Blacc Hollywood," and 2018's "Rolling Papers 2."
