Black and yellow. The two designated battle colors of the Steel City and its gritty location among the Western Pennsylvanian hills. Its prodigal son, Wiz Khalifa, highlights these industrial shades in the video to “Black and Yellow,” his latest ode to his hometown.
Sure the video looks like just about every other Wiz Khalifa visual project, but the man knows a successful formula when he sees one. The posse and cityscape shots are plentiful with alluring frames of the Smithfield St. Bridge and the PPG building. And, per usual, Wiz’s signature black and yellow Dodge Charger makes another cameo appearance. However, Cleveland and Cincinnati residents take note: “Black and Yellow” contains enough Terrible Towel twirling to cause nausea and heat flashes. You’ve been warned.
