Blacksburg will bleed black and yellow this weekend, as two Pittsburgh rappers bring their beats and lyrics to town.
Wiz Khalifa and special guest Mac Miller are performing at Burruss Hall this Sunday. The duo hails from Pittsburgh, Pa., and have just begun a nationwide Campus Consciousness Tour, an effort to spread environmental knowledge supplemented by memorable music entertainment.
The tour, which began Thursday at Emory University, comes at a time when both artists are promoting new works. Wiz Khalifa released the highly anticipated album “Rolling Papers,” on Tuesday, and Mac Miller released the popular mix tape, “Best Day Ever.”
Before the concert there will be an event held outside Burruss Hall from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. where there will be free giveaways and a Wiz Khalifa special appearance.
Tinzberry Entertainment, one of the chief organizations responsible for the event, will host an afterparty from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. at Awful Arthur’s with special guest DJ Rhetorik.
