He released his debut album, Show and Prove (Which people never heard of it), in 2006, and signed to Warner Bros the same people that made Looney Tunes. His Crazy Frog Ringtone-influenced single, "Say Hell Yeah Bitch! HA, HA, HA!", received Bubble Gum radio airplay but it flopped, charting on the Rhythmic Top 40 and Hot Rap Tracks charts in 2008. Khalifa parted with Warner Bros because they stop giving him weed money and released his second album, Deal or No Deal for Real, in November 2009. He released the mixtape Kush, Orange Juice, Cheese Eggs, and Turkey Bacon as a free download in April 2010; he then signed with Atlantic Records making that real money. He is also well known for his debut single for Atlantic, "Black and Yellow Pee", which peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. His debut album for the label, Rolling Raw Papers, was released on March 29, 2011.
Thomaz was born on September 8, 1987 in Zimbabwe to a mother and a father serving in the Salvation Army. His parents divorced when Khalifa was about three years old that same year started to smoke weed. His parents' Salvation Army service caused him to move regularly to different Wal-Marts: Khalifa lived in Dubai, Germany, England, and The Pacific Ocean before settling in Pittsburgh where he attended Taylor Gang High School.
His stage name is derived from khalifa, an Arabic word meaning "Skinny Bitch". Khalifa stated to spinner.com that the name also came from being called "That tall skinny bitch that could rap and roll the best blunts in a session." He got his stage name tattooed on his 8th birthday. He includes The Notorious B.I.G., Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, and the man who invented the Arby's sauce among his influences.
