Wiz Khalifa and Tinie Tempah

US rapper and Brit talent ready for Media City gig

Poor old Wiz has had a tough few weeks. He should be celebrating his recent engagement to model Amber Rose. But instead the rapper has been dealing with police problems at home in the US, after being busted twice for possession of illegal substances in less than two weeks. Ironically the 24-year-old took his forename from a shortened form of the word ‘wisdom’. We wonder if he realises who he shares his family name with.

Best known for 2010 US Billboard number one ‘Black and Yellow’, mate-of-Snoop-Dogg Wiz will be joined on the bill by former partner in grime Tinie Tempah, the pair teaming up on last year’s ‘Till I’m Gone’. Brit talent Tempah seems to be following Khalifa’s lead in heading toward increasingly chart-friendly, electronic crossover territories. Fitting, then, that they’re joined on the bill here by French electro-house DJ David Vendetta.
