Wiz Khalifa Gets Shady

Prince Williams, FilmMagic

Wiz Khalifa is getting shady. The Pittsburgh rapper has just announced a partnership with Eyetique to produce his own line of sunglasses dubbed The Elevators. He debuted the specs in his video for the hit ‘Black and Yellow.’

Joining Mary J. Blige and Snoop Dogg in the sunglasses game, Wiz is endorsing his line with creator Norman Childs. Available for $225 apiece, the sleek frames come in black and tortoise colors. They are currently available for pre-order, while fans will have to wait until Nov. 25 for their order to ship.

Wiz recently stepped outside of the hip-hop realm to campaign for youth voters to help pass Proposition 19. The weed-friendly rapper, who has released a staggering number of tracks dedicated to greenery, appeared in the video for the League of Young Voters Education Fund, encouraging voters to help legalize marijuana in the state of California. Ironically, the 22-year-old was arrested after playing a show at East Carolina University in North Carolina last week for several marijuana violations and spent the night in a county prison before getting bailed out on a $300,000 bond the next morning.

Prop 19 did not pass in the state of California in the November elections.
