Wiz Khalifa’s hard work is paying off in a major way. ‘Roll Up,’ the second single from Wiz Khalifa’s Rostrum Records/Atlantic Records debut ‘Rolling Papers,’ has earned “Mr. Black and Yellow” his second platinum plaque. Rostrum Records CEO Benjy Grinberg was the first to break the news on Twitter Wednesday (June 1).  He tweets, “As of today, ROLL UP has become another Platinum selling song for @realwizkhalifa. Congrats to the whole team!”

In May Wiz Khalifa’s fan site also reported that his debut LP Rolling Papers went Gold. In leiu of this success he has already planned to go on tour to continue to promote his movement.

Standing alongside Wiz on stage will be fellow rappers Taylor Chevy Woods and Kanye West’s protégé, G.O.O.D. Music’s Big Sean.

The tour kicks off June 5 in none other than his hometown, Pittsburgh, PA and will swarm 40 cities throughout the U.S. This tour is definitely a smart move for the PA native who was also featured on the cover of  rolling out magazine this past March. Congrats Wiz, we salute you! Make sure you check out the finalized tour schedule to see if the ‘Rolling Papers’ Tour will be making a stop in or near your city soon.
