Wiz Khalifa continues to be a staple in the rap community with his combination of mellow and party music. He burst onto the scene with mainstream success with the release of his first major label debut, “Rolling Papers” in 2011, which spawned the hits “Black and Yellow,” “Roll Up” and “No Sleep.” His sophomore studio album, “Blacc Hollywood”, debuted at no. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart and featured the hit single "We Dem Boyz." Khalifa's track, “See You Again,” off the FURIOUS 7 soundtrack, catapulted to the top of the charts, holding the no. 1 spot for 12 consecutive weeks. It continued its success by winning a Critics’ Choice Award and two Billboard Music Awards and earning three Grammy Award nominations and a Golden Globe nomination. Khalifa is preparing to release a new studio album called “Rolling Papers 2,” which will be available everywhere July 13.
Mississippi-bred brothers Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi make up the hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd. Their third album “SR3MM” arrives as the follow-up to “SremmLife 2,” a 2016 album offering the multi-platinum No. 1 hit “Black Beatles” (ft. Gucci Mane). Released in 2015, Rae Sremmurd’s first full-length "SremmLife” debuted at the top of Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Rap Albums charts, in addition to cracking the Top 5 on the Top 200 Albums chart in its first week. SremmLife also scored Rae Sremmurd five platinum-selling singles, including “No Flex Zone” and “No Type.”
