“O.N.I.F.C.” is the follow-up to Wiz Khalifa’s gold-certified major label debut, “ROLLING PAPERS,” which was released in March 2011, and spawned the multi-platinum hits “Black and Yellow,” “Roll Up” and “No Sleep.” Wiz earned himself two nominations at this year’s Grammy Awards thanks to his breakout hit “Black and Yellow,” in both the “Best Rap Song” and “Best Rap Performance” categories. Khalifa then joined forces with Snoop Dogg for “Mac and Devin Go to High School Soundtrack,” the collaborative soundtrack album for the film “Mac and Devin Go to High School.” The album featured the hit single “Young, Wild & Free (feat. Bruno Mars),” which has gone on to become 3x-certified Platinum, and a top 10 success on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart. Wiz kicked off 2012 with a high-profile campaign with Bing, where he was featured in the search engine’s nationwide commercials.
