    Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa has signed to Atlantic. Rumor is he was being courted by the folks at IDJ and Rick Ross' label but the hip-hop sensation, who was named "Hottest Breakthrough MC of 2010" by MTV, is currently at work on his much-anticipated label debut, slated for release in early 2011. He is also headed out on "Waken Baken Tour," which kicks off on Thursday, September 16 and runs through late November. Bring the green!

    Wiz blew up big-time earlier this year with the release of his blockbuster, KUSH & ORANGE JUICE. The mixtape proved to be a genuine online phenomenon, quickly becoming the number one search topic on both Google and Yahoo!, as well as a number one trending topic on Twitter, with the hashtag, #kushandorangejuice.
