Since his split with wife Amber Rose, Wiz Khalifa has been rather quiet on the Twitter front, but on Tuesday morning (Oct. 7), the rapper shocked the Internet with his new purple hairdo.

Wiz posted pictures of his new purple dreadlocks on his Twitter and Instagram accounts. The Pittsburgh rapper dubbed his new coif "Purple Rain." Apparently, the new 'do is a tribute to Prince's classic movie of the same name.

Of course, Khalifa's new purple locks brought a tidal wave of slander via Twitter (read below). Some people are speculating that his new look has something do with his impending divorce from Amber Rose. Others believe that Wiz has been smoking some really good kush.

Fans will get a chance to look at Khalifa's new dreads when he kicks off his Blacc Hollywood Big Secret tour later this month. The 20-city trek will hit mid-size venues beginning Oct. 24 in Santa Ana, Calif. To peep Wiz Khalifa's full tour itinerary, click here.
