Wiz Khalifa Returns to the Jordan Center this Fall

Paper planes will be flying over Happy Valley this fall as Taylor Gang makes the trek from the 412 to the 814 for hazy eyed, hip-hop heavyweight, Wiz Khalifa, to roll one up on the stage of the Bryce Jordan Center on Friday, October 12th.

The principle of “Flight School” isn’t a rookie to the Penn State rap scene. After playing random frat parties since 2008, Khalifa rose to center stage to blew the roof off of the BJC back on April 26th, 2011 with still up-and-coming Pittsburgh song-smith, Mac Miller. That same month, the 23-year-old rapper was dawning news stands doused in a Jimi Hendrix-esque swag on the April cover of Rolling Stone Magazine.

This time around, Mr. Blow it by the O will be performing along-side fellow Taylor Gang recording artists– Juicy J, Chevy Woods, Lola Monroe, Berner and Tuki Carter–coming off the cuff of the September 18th release of his much-anticipated 2nd studio album, “O.N.I.F.C.”

Tickets will be available for sale this Friday at noon. Snag you seats either at the Bryce Jordan Center Box Office or online at Ticketmaster.

To get stoked for Wizzle Man’s return to Happy Valley, check out the video for his newest single, “Work Hard Play Hard”:
