'Black & Yellow' Rapper

Crazy Frat House Concert

4/16/2011 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You can't play shows at colleges like Syracuse and North Carolina when your biggest song is called "Black and Yellow" -- so this week, rapper Wiz Khalifa hit up the black and gold (close enough!) fans at a frat house at Purdue.

Mr. Khalifa played in front of nearly 3,500 people outside the Sigma Nu frat house on campus on Thursday night. Khalifa played a series of songs, but closed it out with his hit, "Black and Yellow," which was originally written for sports teams in Pittsburgh ... but kinda works for the Purdue Boilermakers as well.

Get ready, Vanderbilt Commodores ... you might be next.

This article is wrong, do your research. The song wAs written about diamonds and cars. Not about the steelers. Just listen to the lyrics. Not once does he say anything about Pitt or the team. He literally says yellow diamonds black car or the other wAy around I forget. Common Harvey do better!

"Black & YELLOW" has N-O-T-H-I-N-G to do with the Pittsburgh Steelers, it's just happens to be that this character is from Pittsburgh. The Steeler colors are Black & GOLD...there is NOTHING yellow about the Steelers!

Actually he wrote this song as a pittsburgh anthem. Hes representing Pittsburgh with black and yellow or gold, colors of all pro sports teams here, with everything he sports, clothes jewelry and car. It wasn't specifically writen for the sports teams but for the entire city. But it became the steelers anthem throughout the season and playoffs.

I'm from the 412 and Black & Yellow was NOT written for the sports teams...it was about a day in Pittsburgh. It was playing here way before football season even started last year. Steelers just adopted it during playoff run
