Wiz Khalifa can smile now.

The Pittsburgh rapper had a minor hit in 2007's "Say Yeah," a breezy dance cut laced all over Dutch trance act Alice DeeJay's "Better Off Alone." That single brought him some attention. After seeing the success of "Say Yeah," Warner Bros. pressured Wiz to make more of the same.

Oh dear. He said "no" and left Warner. When he returned via Atlantic to release this year's Rolling Papers, it was strictly on his own terms.
