    5 years ago ; going gold and you & your career were HISTORY

    now ; going on is the new plat

    congrats to Wiz..even tho I didnt like his album. some catchy shit but meh..

  • puerto-black

    congrats, hard work pays off…..need a video to “no sleep” and “rooftops”

  • Umpire

    And this basically sums up exactly how little a modern musician’s career has to do with actually making good music. Possibly his worst work ever, but definitely his best promotion.

  • TreeFingers

    gold = the new platinum

  • King

    Yeah Gold plaque for a fucked up album…..Fuck this nigga

  • Dreezy

    Guess weed does sell albums.

  • Dre

    How is it his worst? It’s his best album to date… It’s like fans could never compromise with a rapper.look at music from there standpoint and stop critiquing everything…he successful now a real wiz fan would be happy for him instead hitting on him like it’s his worst shit hen really it’s all in your head..sane shit same formula that made you love him in thr first place…fuckboys

  • M.T

    it was an ok album. congrats

  • King

    Wiz fans are FUCKUPS

  • joe Blow

  • Sonny Carsons Son

    Gold Rapper

    Multi-Platinum Sucker Stroker

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    Congrats WIZ.

  • Just Sayin

    At least Amber will stay with him a little longer now.

  • Jordan Cohen

    Um, I don’t see Amber in ANY of those pics. Proud moment, where’s ya boo?

  • Jordan Cohen

    I mean, its not like she has a JOB or anything. Where does SHE HAVE to be?

  • MP

    Finding rap gems is like finding “a needle in a haystack”. Too much brainwashing bullshit like this sells in abundance! (Except Eminem..lol) Can’t knock the hustle (cuz that’s what these fans are, fiends; buying any garbage that gets em high for a little) though, congrats Wiz.

  • Marshall

    Well deserved.
    I’m joking, sorry.

  • @Dre

    REAL Wiz fans know his best album was Show and Prove, and his best tapes were BAR and KxOJ.

    Bandwagoning Amber Roses were the only ones fuckin with Rolling Papers. And I say WERE, cuz nobody’s fuckin with that shit anymore.

  • CONGRATULATIONS TO WIZ KHALIFA boi…..this was a LONG road…but if someone was gonna put our city Pittsburgh on the map…..it had to be him and he did it. Gold in this climate is next to impossible…..you don’t gotta deck it but you gotta respeck it……

    Congrats homie….Pittsburgh MC’s in the building.

    Long way from the pittsburgh awards 2008 homie…..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CEyhSS31MA

  • Hd

    I hated on the album till I actually listened to it. Rolling papers is a classic and real album. The lyrical content was real life shit and also inspirational. It tells a story but i wouldnt expect ppl who listen to rappers and not artist to understand that. That my friend is a big difference! So keep talking trash while wiz do him..Taylorgang or buy a wackaflocka album

  • JHP

    The album wasn’t a classic by any means, but I liked it. Wiz has worked his ass off to get to where he is, unlike a lot of you, I won’t hate on another man reaching success. Not everyone can go platinum nowadays, so gold is pretty good. He still got a platinum single though, congrats to Wiz

  • Trina
