Sophomore Album: Wiz Khalifa Announces His 2nd Disc Entitled, ‘O.N.I.F.C.’

Last night Saturday (November 12), Atlantic Records recording artist Wiz Khalifa held a Ustream session to chat with fans, answer some of their questions and play some music. During the session, the Pittsburgh native announced his sophomore album title O.N.I.F.C. without explaining further what the acronym means. This will be the follow-up to Khalifa’s debut LP Rolling Papers, which debuted at #2 on the US Billboard 200 chart, with first-week sales of 197,000 copies. As of now, the disc has sold over 600,000 copies worldwide.

In addition to the album, the gold-selling rapper (platinum if we’re including his singles) will be releasing a new mixtape called Taylor Allderdice which is in reference to the high school he attended in his hometown Pittsburgh.
