Wiz Khalifa has a big summer ahead. The rapper has announced that his third studio album, Blacc Hollywood, will arrive on August 19. The follow-up to 2012’s O.N.I.F.C. will include his hit single “We Dem Boyz.”

With less than two months to go, Wiz has already put the finishing touches on the project. “I’m completed, finished, done, wrapped up. We just need to put it out to the people,” the rapper told ABC News Radio during the Billboard Music Awards back in May.

Before the rapper releases his long-awaited set, he will embark on his upcoming trek, officially dubbed the Under the Influence of Music Tour. The outing begins July 24 at The Pavilion at Montage Mountain in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and its scheduled to close on August 24 at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine, California.

So what can people anticipate from his tour?

“They can expect to get really stoned, not only off of the highest grade marijuana in their town, but really just good music. It’s going to be a really fun experience,” he says.

Wiz explained the reasoning for handpicking his supporting acts including Tyga, Ty Dolla $ign, Rich Homie Quan, DJ Drama, Iamsu, Mack Wilds and Sage the Gemini.

“I just respect the fact that they’re young, they got a lot of energy, they bring positivity to the game and that’s what I’m all about; so that’s why we’re doing this thing,” Wiz says.

Tickets for his third annual trek are still available via Live Nation.
