Oh, and he celebrated the honor by taking some shrooms before he stepped out at the ball game.
Just a regular Monday for Wiz Khalifa

“Finna get stoned af and throw this first pitch at the pirates game,” Khalifa tweeted. “Shroomed out throwin a baseball is crazy.”

After he tossed the pitch, Khalifa uploaded some pics of weed and the shrooms. He also still managed to catch the rest of the game, as he shared another photo of his view from the stands, complete with some Cracker Jack and an apparent drink.
Throughout his career, Khalifa has praised his Pittsburgh roots. During a 2012 interview with MTV News (via HipHopDX), he pointed out that the city’s hip-hop scene had opened up “a whole new avenue” for kids being raised there.
“You really won’t get it if you’re not from there,” he said. “Just growing up in Pittsburgh and knowing different neighborhoods, having family there, and just loving it, it’s like no other place.”
“Pittsburgh, it’s just laid-back… Midwest almost on some country stuff,” he added.
