Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa could not escape a brief run-in with police over the weekend scot-free, getting busted for a traffic violation in California.
According to reports, Khalifa’s decision to hit the road without a seatbelt ultimately cost him.
Wiz Khalifa learned two important lessons last night: 1) Always wear your seatbelt 2) Being famous doesn’t get you out of a ticket TMZ spotted the rapper inside of his brand new $100k Porsche 911 Carrera S … moments after he was pulled over by a cop for not buckling up … a violation in the state of California.

Despite getting recognized by the officer, Wiz still rolled away with a fine.
Wiz — who spent his day at a baby shower for his fiancee Amber Rose — was clearly bummed out during the stop … but turned to our camera and gave a message for his fans, “Make sure you guys wear your seatbelts.” During the stop, we asked the cop if he knew he pulled over a world famous rapper — to which he replied, “I know. I recognized him!” Still, he wrote up the ticket anyway … and told our photog, “Safety … safety.” (TMZ)
He spent the weekend alongside fiancée Amber Rose for their baby shower.
