Wiz Khalifa performs at The Forum on Sept. 4, 2016 in Inglewood, Calif.

Known for his body tattoos, fun party songs, and love of kush, artist/rapper Wiz Khalifa has been on the hip-hop scene since his debut studio album Show and Prove dropped in September 2006. In the ten years since, Khalifa, born Cameron Jibril Thomaz, has churned out radio-friendly hits while honing his bold sartorial choices, and colorful hairstyles. In honor of Wiz’s 29th birthday (Sept. 8),

Listen to the 7 Best Fetty Wap Remixes

Billboard Dance rounded up seven remixes of Wiz Khalifa's songs including joints off his 2011 release, Rolling Papers to his multiple Fast and Furious franchise songs to help hold you over until Rolling Papers 2 drops. 

Wiz Khalifa - "Black and Yellow" (K Theory Remix)

It’s only right we start off with the OG Khalifa track that helped push the Pittsburg rep to the forefront of popular hip-hop culture. Dylan Lewman and Malcolm Anthony, the duo behind K Theory add their electronic hip-hop sound to the unofficial Steelers anthem.

Wiz Khalifa - "James Bong" (DVNGLEz Remix)

Playing off the name of the famous, fictional British spy James Bond, and of his love for marijuana, Wiz dropped “James Bong” on his 2014 mixtape, 28 Grams. DVNGLEz reworked the laid-back track into a mellower and serene version; reminding us of a song you would hear during a hip-hop hot yoga class. 

Wiz Khalifa - "Go Hard or Go Home" (Lil Riico Remix)

Wiz collaborated with Iggy Azalea on the original song for the Fast and Furious 7 soundtrack, where the Taylor Gang leader raps and sings about hustling hard to care for your family, a central theme of the film franchise. While Iggy is missing from this remix, Riico’s version speeds up the track and adds a trap influence with 808 drums.

Wiz Khalifa - "Young Wild & Free" (Konglomerate Remix)

Dayton, Ohio-based trio Konglomerate flips the track into a tropical house remix centered around spending your summer days by the sea with your friends. The idea of “living young, wild, and free” is still intact when the guys sing “that’s what we’re about/living by the sea/ sipping on some rum under the shade of the tree/ that’s what we about/just feel the warm breeze/living young, wild, and free.”

Wiz Khalifa - "Ass Drop" (Kzeero Remix)

Kzeero's take on Wiz's Blacc Hollywood track encourages you to shake what your mama gave ya. Half-way through the hook, the vibe is slightly similar to "Get Turnt" by Carnage ft. I LOVE Makonnen, but is still unique thanks to the electronic elements weaved throughout the track.

Wiz Khalifa - "We Dem Boyz" (Giovanny Trap Remix)

Hol’ up. Hol’ up. We had to end this roundup right with 2014’s inescapable hit “We Dem Boyz.” Giovanny’s take on Wiz Kalifa's song, which peaked at #43 on the Hot 100 Charts, is to first speed up the track and adding a bedspring creaking sound effect, then slowing it down in anticipation of the cold beat dropping.

Wiz Khalifa - This Plane (No Sleep Remix)

No Sleep concocts a simple, minimal trap beat for Wiz Khalifa's song "This Plane." The production primarily runs on a warm bass melody, bell percussion and snaps. Add this one to your pregame playlist.
