Houston's Best Weekend Concerts: Wiz Khalifa, A$AP Rocky, Adam Ant, Brad Paisley, etc.

Wiz Khalifa, A$AP Rocky Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, July 26

Rapper and brand-spankin'-new father Wiz Khalifa may be one of the most likable characters on the hip-hop scene. Not only is he responsible for that super-catchy "Black and Yellow" earworm -- an homage to his hometown team, the Pittsburgh Steelers -- but he's also responsible for schleppin' around his son's diaper bag, which he does proudly.

Even with a new album that dropped in April, O.N.I.F.C., and this massive "Under the Influence of Music" tour" featuring A$AP Rocky and a bunch of other big hip-hop names, Wiz still finds time for his share of the diaper duty, flying mama and baby out on the weekends while on tour. It's too awesome for words, so we'll just forgive his penchant for fur coats and Cruella de Vil hair in return. Also with B.o.B, Joey Bada$$, Pro Era Burner, Chevy Woods and Smoke DZA.
