Wiz Khalifa performs on Friday night, Oct. 11, 2019 at Pitt’s Peterson Events Center in Pittsburgh after Pitt’s Blue and Gold Madness event featuring opening scrimmages from the men’s and women’s basketball teams.

It was Pitt’s annual Blue and Gold Madness event on Friday night — but it ended with the song “Black and Yellow.”

Pittsburgh rapper and Grammy nominated recording artist Wiz Khalifa headlined a live performance for students following inter-team scrimmages between Pitt’s women’s and men’s basketball teams at the Peterson Events Center in Oakland.

Khalifa wasn’t the only well-known guest. DJ Bonics, a Pitt alumni and DJ for Wiz Khalifa, emcee’d the event and guest coaches Ryan Shazier and James Conner of the Pittsburgh Steelers attended the yearly basketball opening ceremony.
