Wiz Khalifa - Black and Yellow

[Wiz Khalifa - Intro]
Yeah ah ha
You know what it is
Black and yellow, black and yellow
Black and yellow, black and yellow
(Repeated)
[Chorus]
Yeah ah ha, you know what it is
Everything I do, I do it big
Yeah ah ha, screaming that's stuff
When I pulled out of the lot, that's stuff
Step up in my town when you see me you know everything
Black and yellow, black and yellow
Black and yellow, black and yellow
I put it down from my whip to my diamonds
Black and yellow, black and yellow
Black and yellow, black and yellow
Black and yellow, black and yellow
[Wiz Khalifa- Verse 1]
Uh, black stripe, yellow paint
The n-ggas scared of it but them hoes aint
Soon as I hit the club look at them hoes face
Put the pedal once make the floor shake
Suede inside, engine roaring
It's the big boy you know what I pay for it
And I got the pedal to the metal
Got you niggas checking game I'm balling out on every level
Hear them haters talk but there's nothing you can tell em
Just made a million, got another million on my schedule
No love for em nigga breaking hearts
No keys, push to start
[Chorus]
[Wiz Khalifa- Verse 2]
Got a call from my jeweler this just in
And b-tches love me cuz I'm fucking with their best friends
Not a lesbian but she a freak though
This aint for one night I'm shining all week hoe
I'm sippin clicquot and rocking yellow diamonds
So many rocks up in my watch I can't tell what the time is
Got a pocket full of big faces
Throw it up cuz every nigga that I'm with tailored
[Chorus]
[Wiz Khalifa- Verse 3]
Stay high like how I'm supposed to do
That crowd underneath them clouds can't get close to you
And my car look unapproachable
Super clean but it's super mean
She wanna fuck with them cats
Smoke weed count stacks
Get fly and take trips and that's that
Real rap, I let her get high if she want she feel that
Convertible drop feel, '87 the top peel back
[Chorus]
[End]

"Black and Yellow" is a song by American rapper Wiz Khalifa from his third studio album "Rolling Papers". It was released on September 14, 2010, as the lead single from the album. The song was written by Khalifa, along with Stargate, who produced it. It was released as a CD single in honor of Record Store Day. The song peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Wiz Khalifa's first number-one single in the US; he would top the chart again in 2015 with "See You Again". The song is about growing up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and also Khalifa's car, a yellow Dodge Challenger Hemi with black stripes. He has stated that he got the car in those colors as a tribute to his hometown of Pittsburgh, whose official colors are black and gold, and its professional sports teams, most of whose colors are black and some variation of gold or yellow. The song itself does not mention Pittsburgh or sports, although the song's music video made the connection to Pittsburgh explicit, showing various iconic locations in the city, as well as apparel associated with the football team the Pittsburgh Steelers, the hockey team the Pittsburgh Penguins, and the baseball team the Pittsburgh Pirates. In the year after it was released, "Black and Yellow" spawned dozens of remixes, parodies and remakes, both in the U.S. and internationally, many of them made in tribute to a local sports team. At Super Bowl XLV in 2011, which featured the Steelers competing against the Green Bay Packers, the Steelers used "Black and Yellow" as their fight song, while the Packers used a remix by Lil' Wayne called "Green and Yellow", marking the first time both teams at the Super Bowl had used the same song. The song earned Khalifa his first Grammy nominations, for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance at the 2012 ceremony. On the issue dated October 2, 2010, "Black and Yellow" debuted at No. 100 on the Billboard Hot 100. It then dropped out the following week and re-entered at No. 64 on the issue dated October 30, 2010. On its eighteenth charting week, the song rose to No. 1 on the issue dated February 19, 2011, selling 198,000 digital copies that week. "Black and Yellow" has sold 4,144,922 digital copies since release.
