Thu, 17 Feb 2011 11:27:19
Wiz Khalifa is about to roll up on your city. Or in your city, depending on your affinity for the green, since we all know about his love of the herb! The "Black and Yellow" rapper will embark on "The Green Carpet Tour." Coming off his massively successful "Waken Baken Tour," the Pittsburgh native joins the 8th installment of the Campus Consciousness Tour, produced by Pretty Polly Productions in conjunction with the non-profit organization Reverb. The 17-city tour kicks off on April 1st in Raleigh, NC and concludes at the Bryce Jordan Center at Penn State University on April 26th.
Khalifa brings a new meaning to the word "green" on this tour --no, really?!-- which promotes eco-friendliness and environmental sustainability, and Wiz K. has committed to powering his tour bus with biodiesel fuel as well as adopting both biodegradable and recyclable products backstage.
Okay, so Wiz isn't just about the green stuff you smoke! He cares about the environment, too.
His new album Rolling Papers is out March 29th.
