He would catch the attention of producer Benjy Grinsberg, who had recently started up in own independent label.

2006 prove to be a breakout year for Khalifa, when he released his first full length debut album Show and Prove. It got him more mainstream attention, and saw him featured in a number of publications as a young artist to look out for. A deal with Warner soon followed in 2007, with who he released two mix tapes. Singles such as Say Yeah featured in Billboards Hot Rap Tracks, showcasing the emerging talent and spreading his skills to a wider audience.
Despite this new success, problems at Warner saw him leave the label in 2009 before he could release a record under the label.

The success of this and further mix tape release Kush & Orange go the attention of Atlantic Records, who signed up Kahlifa.
The first single under this new record label would catapult Wiz Khalifa into the mainstream, with Black & Yellow -a tribute to his team the Pittsburgh Steelers. It went to number one in the charts, and has since gone multi-platinum. Soon after, his debut record under Atlantic was released, with Rolling Papers debuting at number two in the album charts. Backed with lead single Black & Yellow plus several other top hits, Khalifa had live up to the hype that had preceded him, and was now one of the hottest young rappers around.
Having developed a budding friendship with fellow rapper Snoop Dogg, he would feature in a film with LA based MC, in which they released a collaborative soundtrack. Mac and Devin Go to school and its soundtrack showcased the ever developing talent of Kahlifa, who was now regularly working with some of the top names and newest talents in hip hop.
