(AllHipHop News) The first single from Wiz Khalifa’s upcoming album, O.N.I.F.C., has officially been certified Gold after being released two months ago. “Work Hard Play Hard Is Officially Gold. Thank You Taylors!!!,” he tweeted yesterday.”

The single currently sits at #4 on iTunes Hip-Hop singles chart.

O.N.I.F.C. is set to be released on August 28.

It was announced earlier today (June 15) that Cash Money has added DJ Greg Street to their always expanding roster of talent. “I have never once doubted the power of Birdman and Slim, and the Cash Money empire as a whole,” Street said in a statement.

“My goal is to add in making Cash Money Records the first billion dollar independent label by putting major plays together for the brand, in and outside of selling records.”Cash Money president Bryan “Birdman” Williams said of Street, “Slim and I collaborated with him so often, we decided the next step would be to extend a deal to him that would allow him to bring his unique voice and perspective to both our label and publishing company.”

In recent months, Cash Money has added Limp Bizkit, Christina Milian, Busta Rhymes and DJ Khaled to their stable of artists. The label’s next releases are set to come from Bow Wow with his seventh studio album, Underrated, and Lil Wayne with I Am Not A Human Being 2.

ONE Distribution recently announced that footwear maker Supra would be entering into an exclusive partnership with rapper Lil Wayne. The deal will result in the release of a new footwear collection that is set to be inspired, designed, and overseen by both Wayne and the shoe-making company. Supra is set to debut the new line at the Project Trade Show in Las Vegas at the end of August according to High Snobiety.
