(AllHipHop News) Wiz Khalifa proves he can do way more than just crush the rap game.
Most recently, the Taylor Gang founder has shifted his interests to sports. Now, he brings it all the way home to Pittsburg through a new partnership with the esports team Pittsburg Knights.
According to a press release, Khalifa will be joining forces with the Knights as a “strategic partner, bringing expertise in creative direction, marketing, live events, and entertainment."
The president of the esports team James O’Connor called Wiz a visionary.
He said, “He’s always ahead of the curve. He’s creative and savvy and we admire him and his team for their work ethic. We’re really happy to welcome him into the Knights’ family.”
In 2018, the Pittsburgh Steelers, an NFL team who has won the Super Bowl 6 times, also partnered with the Pittsburg Knights.
In an exclusive interview with Forbes, Wiz Khalifa revealed there will also be a song in the works.
"I’m always hands-on with my partnerships and my team will be an extension of the Knights. I’m going to be there supporting however I can... I’m a work on the song in time as well," Wiz Khalifa said.
