Wiz Khalifa Overdoes Auto Tune On “Big Screen,” Performs At Steelers Game

Those starved for new Wiz Khalifa tracks will be thrilled to know that, over the weekend, a new one called “Big Screen” surfaced online. Unfortunately, the Pittsburgh MC is so heavily Auto-Tuned on the cut, it’s hard to keep our eyes from rolling. But for those not yet over Wiz’s “Black And Yellow,” he performed his hometown football-themed hit during yesterday’s Steelers vs. Jets game at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field. Catch that and “Big Screen” after the jump. “They say my life is like the big screen, big screen,” Khalifa boasts on the chorus of the somber “Big Screen.” Who knows—maybe we’re just grouchy because it’s Monday, but this isn’t really doing it for us.

And speaking of which, “Black And Yellow”—which is currently nestled like a champion at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100—was one of of the highlights of yesterday’s Steelers game. Well, that and the fact that Pittsburgh clobbered New York and is now off to the Super Bowl.
