Releasing his debut album, Show and Prove, in 2006, Khalifa was signed to Warner Bros. Records in 2007. When that deal dissolved, Khalifa released another album, Deal or No Deal, then took his talents to Atlantic Records, releasing his label debut disc Rolling Papers in 2011.
Popular singles “Work Hard, Play Hard” and “Remember You” followed on his second Atlantic disc, O.N.I.F.C. in 2012.
