Wiz Khalifa Delays O.N.I.F.C. Album, Announces ’2050′ Tour Dates

By Meghan Gorman

Will Wiz Khalifa’s controversial O.N.I.F.C. album cover stop fans from going to see him on tour? We highly doubt it. Wiz and his Taylor Gang crew are getting ready to hit the road on their “2050 Tour” in North America. The Pittsburgh rapper will be running rampant through 36 cities joined by Juicy J, Chevy Woods, Lola Monroe, Tuki Carter and Berner, beginning the tour on October 12 in Pennsylvania.

The tour dates come with some bad news, though: Wiz’s album will now be pushed from its anticipated September 18 date to an unspecified release.

The first single from O.N.I.F.C., “Work Hard, Play Hard,” has already gone platinum and there is no doubt Wiz will be playing hard with his fans on the tour to celebrate. Tickets for the “2050 Tour” will go on sale this Friday, September 7 on Wiz’s official website, www.wizkhalifa.com. Also, check out Wiz presenting a Moonman tomorrow night, Thursday September 6th, at the MTV Video Music Awards.
