Cameron Jibril Thomaz who was born on September 8, 1987 grew up in a military family. When he was three, his parents got divorced and he moved from one place to another due to their military service. From Germany, England and Japan, he finally settled in Pittsburgh and finished high school in that state. When first trying his hands on music, his stage name was Wisdom Khalifa. The latter word was derived from Arabic which means success. He later shortened 'Wisdom' to Wiz.

Fresh out of high school, it was time to either sink or swim. In 2005, Wiz Khalifa released his first mixtape, "Prince of the City: Welcome to Pistolvania". The mixtape was quickly accepted by the local scene and began to gain buzz outside of Pittsburgh. With that excitement growing by the day, it was the perfect time for a proper commercial album. Wiz soon dropped "Show and Prove", which Okayplayer.com claimed was "arguably the best album of the year." The accolades began piling up and Khalifa was receiving significant co-signs from XXL, Rolling Stone and VIBE alike. A deal with Warner Bros. Records soon followed.
