"Black and Yellow" as written by Cameron Thomaz, Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Storleer Eriksen....
Yeah, uh huh, you know what it is
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Yeah, uh huh, you know what it is
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow

Yeah, uh huh, you know what it is
Erry'thing I do, I do it big
Yeah, uh huh, screaming that's nothing
What I pulled off the lot, that's stunting
Reppin' my town when you see me you know erry'thing
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
I put it down from the whip to my diamonds, I'm in
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow

Black stripe, yellow paint,
Them niggas scared of it but them hoes ain't (hoes ain't)
Soon as I hit the club look at them hoes face
Hit the pedal once make the floor shake
Suede insides, my engine roaring
It's the big boy, you know what I payed for it
And I got the pedal to the metal
Got you niggas checking game I'm balling out on every level
Hear them haters talk but there's nothing you can tell 'em
Just made a million, got another million on my schedule
No love for 'em nigga breaking hearts
No keys, push to start

Yeah, uh huh, you know what it is
Erry'thing I do, I do it big
Yeah, uh huh, screaming that's nothing
What I pulled off the lot, that's stunting
Reppin' my town when you see me you know erry'thing
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
I put it down from the whip to my diamonds, I'm in
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow

Got a call from my jeweler, this just in
Them bitches love me 'cause I'm fucking with their best friends
Not a lesbian but she a freak though
This ain't for one night I'm shining all weak hoe.
I'm sipping Clicquot and rocking yellow diamonds
So many rocks up in the watch I cant tell what the time is
Got a pocket full of big faces
Throw it up 'cause every nigga that I'm with tailored

Yeah, uh huh, you know what it is
Erry'thing I do, I do it big
Yeah, uh huh, screaming that's nothing
What I pulled off the lot, that's stunting
Reppin' my town when you see me you know erry'thing
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
I put it down from the whip to my diamonds, I'm in
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow

Stay high like how I'm supposed to do
That crown underneath them clouds, can't get close to you
And my car look unapproachable
Super clean but its super mean
She wanna fuck with them cats,
Smoke weed, count stacks,
Get fly, take trips and that's that
Real rap, I let her get high,
She wantin' she feel that,
Convertible drop fill, eighty seven the top peeled, back

Yeah, uh huh, you know what it is
Yeah yeah, uh huh, you know what it is
Reppin' my town when you see me you know erry'thing
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
I put it down from the whip to my diamonds I'm in
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow

Uh
Yeah, uh huh, you know what it is
Erry'thing I do, I do it big
Yeah, uh huh, screaming that's nothing
What I pulled off the lot, that's stunting
Reppin' my town when you see me you know erry'thing
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
I put it down from the whip to my diamonds, I'm in
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow
Black and yellow

    General CommentYes indeed Wiz khalifa is from Pittsburgh and loves the Steelers, but this song is not about them. Its about his car
    Uh, black stripe, yellow paint
    the n-ggas scared of it but them hoes aint
    soon as I hit the club look at them hoes face
    put the pedal once make the floor shake
    suede inside, engine roaring

    no love for em n-gga breaking hearts
    no keys, push to start


    Basically his car is a push to start it has yellow paint with a black stripe and everyone else is envious of it. The last verse tells us its a convertible that he basically likes to blaze and f'ck in

    Song MeaningKhalifa uses repetition to alternate between black, an archetypical color representing death and chaos, and yellow, a color associated with hope and prosperity.
    He juxtaposes his dark upbringing, perhaps alluding to his struggles as a young black man, with the color of gold, treasure, and what may be known as "bling." The recurrent automotive language is an important motif because of its representation of sexual frustration. The speaker's financial ups and downs culminate on his usage of a car as a sexual surrogate, which may symbolize some level of impotence or emasculation.
    If this is true, it becomes evident that the black-and-yellow contrast is a reflection of the cognitive dissonance of a financially and sexually unstable individual.
    When trying to express his frustration, Mr. Khalifa could come up with little more than "black and yellow." The frustrated outcry, "You know what it is!" invites the reader to reach deeper to figure out the speaker's plight.

    My InterpretationPretty sure this is about his car, but I really want it to be the Hufflepuff House Fight Song :-P

    General CommentThe song is about Wiz's love for Pittsburgh in general. Everything in Pittsburgh is black and gold- it's the official color of the city. All the major sports teams' colors are black and gold. He says black and yellow because it's more catchy and the Steelers' gold is bright (many outsiders call it yellow). He's singing about reppin' his hometown. When you see him, you know everything will be black and yellow- from his diamonds to his car. The rest of the lyrics are just him talking about how he's made it and living the good life but he's still proud to be from Pittsburgh. This is a fact.

    My InterpretationAs kristaseleneon said, Wiz is "reppin his town." Everything he sports is black and yellow, from his whip (car) to his diamonds. Pittsburgh. Reppin that 412. Youtube "Pittsburgh Sound."
