When Wiz Khalifa began recording in 2010, he wanted to create an anthem for his city, Pittsburgh. In the fall of 2010, his single, "Black & Yellow," was released and it became one of the biggest hits late in the year. In the time since its release, "Black & Yellow" has become the anthem Wiz wanted it to be.
As the Pittsburgh Steelers have played this season, the song has been their anthem. Fans of Wiz Khalifa credit the song for the Steelers' success. Wiz Khalifa said he knew he had made it when the people in his hometown truly loved his music. There have been times when people have been lukewarm, but that time is in the past.
Recently, Wiz Khalifa was booked to perform his anthem in his hometown. Before the start of the AFC Championship Game, Wiz Khalifa will perform his hit single in front of the people. He will also engage in the Terrible Towel Twirl ceremony before the start of the game. Wiz Khalifa's idea with "Black & Yellow" has paid off and then some, given the response of the music.
