Wiz Khalifa Rolling Paper
Seems like when it comes down to being Americas next favorite stoner the Legends of Mr. Rager might become a long boring myth, move over Kid Cudi and welcome Wiz Khalifa, the 23-year-old Pittsburgh native who scorched every music chart he touched this past winter with his single “Black and Yellow” as it dominated radio waves and became the Steelers’ fight song during their run to the Super Bowl to bad they lost.Unknown to many new Khalifa fans this will be his third album,yes he has released other albums before he just wasn't as big and famous as he is now,. Ehh was the album what i expected it to be? yes it was the only exception for me would have to be "Black and Yellow" besides that the whole album is a celebration of his new fame, money, and simply having a good time. Now if your a big time Wiz fan you know the good times usually involves sitting down in the cut rolling dubbies up, as the album’s title "Rolling Papers" would indicate, so if your not into the stoning habits like millions of Americans are I wouldn't suggest this album and no it's not as deep and heart felt as Kid Cudi's "Man on the Moon". The album is very relate able though when it comes to a down to earth type of message. I wont discredit the man he does tackle other topics like break-ups and outside pressures with a big brother to younger sibling approach; but he does boast about the fame glamor and women. On the track “On My Level” which features Oakley, California rap legend Too Short, Wiz pretty much talks about hows hes on this new level or higher plain of being since becoming a star so he does go through the Diddy-Ego eccentric phase on the album, but I don't blame I know I also would boast about my hard earned accomplishments. Wiz is living a life many up and coming rappers hope to obtain one day in there careers. Rolling Papers is a chilled out, laid-back home run. The only big f up is “Top Floor,” man that producer needs to get fired like ASAP beat had like way to much going on it was just a giant big mess but besides that I like the album now is it worth buying? its good but not that good I'd wait till someone offers to buy for me but hey thats just my personal opinion I still like the dude at the end of the day.
