Pittsburgh Steelers fans probably won’t need any help getting revved up for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game versus the New York Jets, but Pitt native Wiz Khalifa has signed on to rally the fans as he performs his breakout hit ‘Black and Yellow’ before kickoff. “I’ve always had that Pittsburgh pride,” Wiz said in a statement. “I just wanted to let people know where I’m from and represent any way I can and what better way than through our colors. I took that hometown pride and put it in a song.”

Khalifa is set to take the stage in Heinz Field at 6:30PM on Sunday where he will also lead fans in the Terrible Towel Twirl before the Steelers and the Jets take the field. “It’s gonna be crazy man,” Khalifa expressed. “It’s gonna be really monumental to see everyone out there. Knowing where I grew up and everyone rockin’ in the same place. This is the closest to being a Steeler that I’m gonna get.”

‘Black and Yellow’ was released in September of 2010 as the lead single from Khalifa’s forthcoming full-length studio debut for Atlantic. In its four months, the catchy song has seen several spinoffs. Tom Hanks’ son Chet Haze repped his college colors in the remake ‘White and Purple,’ and ‘Jersey Shore’ cast member Vinny Guadagnino remixed the track to fit his ‘Black and Guido‘ style. More notably, Snoop Dogg and The Game joined Khalifa for a ‘Purp and Yellow‘ remix of the tune as a tribute to the Los Angeles Lakers.
