Wiz Khalifa is a wealthy man now, but he wasn’t always living in the lap of luxury. The 23-year-old’s breakout hit “Black and Yellow” ejected him from the underground to the mainstream, and the checks have been rolling in ever since.
Khalifa revealed to Complex Magazine, the first big-ticket item he bought once he came into some money, and unlike some of his rap peers, it wasn’t jewelry. “My 2011 [Dodge] Challenger,” he said .“The black and yellow car from the video.”
Rather than blowing money fast, the Pittsburgh native dropped a modest amount on the vehicle, at least by rapper standards. “I think it was $40,000. I didn’t buy it straight out because I wanted to build my credit up. I’ve got a couple cars that I brought straight out, but I didn’t buy this one straight out. I’m actually still making payments on it even though I could buy it. It’s good to have bills. Keeps your credit looking good.”
