Well, hand over a Primanti Brothers pastrami and cheese and toss us a can of Iron City—Pittsburgh MC Wiz Khalifa finally revealed the name of his new album on Ustream. “The official release date for the Wiz Khalifa album is March 29,” said the rapper. “The name of the album is Rolling Papers.” Looks like we can rule subtlety out of this rapper’s repertoire. Wiz continued to discuss the name of his upcoming Atlantic Records album. “It’s an appropriate title. It’s called Rolling Papers, like the papers that you roll, the papers that I roll, the papers that we smoke. But it’s deeper than that too. I thought of this before I even started recording the album and before it was a full idea. It’s not just about the weed thing. It’s bigger than that. My career really took off when I started smoking papers.”

The “Black And Yellow” rapper explained that the title also refers to the time when he was able to break away from his previous contract with Warner Bros., and when he decided to stop writing whole verses for his songs down on paper.

This past Sunday Wiz gave his hometown a little inspiration when he performed his current Top 10 hit “Black And Yellow” at the Steelers vs. Jets game in Pittsburgh.

The Steelers are now set to take on the Green Bay Packers in Arlington, Texas on February 6, where Christina Aguilera will sing the National Anthem and the Black Eyed Peas are slated to perform during halftime.

Any guesses as to how Wiz will choose to celebrate on game day?
