He released the mixtape Kush and Orange Juice as a free download in April 2010; he then signed with Atlantic Records. He is also well known for his debut single for Atlantic, "Black and Yellow," which peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. His debut album for the label, Rolling Papers, was released on March 29, 2011. He followed that album with O.N.I.F.C. on December 4, 2012, which was backed by the singles "Work Hard, Play Hard," and "Remember You." Wiz released his fourth album Blacc Hollywood on August 18, 2014, backed by the lead single "We Dem Boyz." In March 2015, he released "See You Again" for the soundtrack of the film Furious 7; the song peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100.In 2013, it was confirmed that Wiz Khalifa had recorded songs with Adele for his upcoming fifth studio album, Blacc Hollywood. When Khalifa confirmed that he had worked with Adele, he stated that the songs they had worked on were being considered for the album, although they had yet to be cleared for the album (along with collaborations between Miley Cyrus and Juicy J). He also confirmed it again, at an interview with Skee Live.  He later revealed that his collaboration with Adele, like the rest of the songs on the album, serves a purpose and that it would tie in with the rest of the album.  However, he later backtracked on these statements, indicating that it was solely an "idea" and that they had never actually recorded anything, before adding that he wanted to collaborate with her in the future.
