US rap star Wiz Khalifa is set to perform in Israel this summer, becoming the latest international musician to announce a performance in the Jewish state in 2016.

10-time Grammy nominee Khalifa will perform at Rishon Letzion Park on June 25.

Wiz Khalifa has released six albums in total, and is considered one of the most successful rappers in recent music history.

He has performed and recorded tracks in the past with the likes of Snoop Dogg and Bruno Mars, and his performance will be eagerly anticipated by Israeli rap fans.

Khalifa joins a list of music stars planning to perform in Israel this year.

Last month pop sensation Sia announced her own 2016 tour of Israel, following in the footsteps of Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, DJ Avicii and others - all of whom are also scheduled to arrive this summer.
