ROLLING PAPERS spawned the hugely successful hits Black and Yellow, Roll Up, and No Sleep and gave Wiz the platform to win the award for Best New Artist at the 2011 BET Awards and Top New Artist at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards.

As a follow up to ROLLING PAPERS, Wiz Released O.N.I.F.C. in 2012. This album featured tracks Work Hard, Play Hard and Remember You featuring The Weeknd.

His third studio album released in 2014, BLACC HOLLYWOOD, debuted at #1 on Billboards Top 200 album chart and included hit single "We DemBoyz." Soon after, Wizs track, See You Again, off the FURIOUS 7 soundtrack, catapulted to the top of the charts across 95 countries. Holding the #1 spot for 12 consecutive weeks, See You Again broke records by being Spotifys most-streamed track in a single day in the United States and in a single week in 26 countries and winning two Billboard Music Awards in the categories Top Hot 100 Song and Top Rap Song, earning three Grammy Award nominations in the categories Song of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Best Song Written for Visual Media, and a Golden Globe nomination in the category Best Original Song Motion Picture.

His latest studio album, ROLLING PAPERS 2, which is certified gold, was released in July 2018.
