Wiz Khalifa Transforms An Amusement Park Into "Camwood" For His Birthday

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

It's not every day that a young man turns 28, and when that young man is Wiz Khalifa, the celebrations can get a bit...creative. The tatted-up rapper recently took over a theme park in his native Pittsburgh, PA to help ring in his birthday, giving himself a mighty impressive gift that could be shared by plenty of his close friends.

Wiz declares the park "Camwood" (the man's government name is Cameron, after all) and as wel can see in the clip, inviting folks to rap, blow out birthday candles, ride a pedal pub, hit the rollercoasters and generally carry on in the simple, joyous way that only amusement parks allow. The video was directed by longtime Okayplayer family member Emmai Alaquiva and is the perfect kicked-back beginning to your weekend.

Watch the infectiously fun video below, and if you're lucky enough to be across the pond, catch Khalifa on live tour with sporadic support from A$AP Rocky.
