I'm really sensitive to the sun so I figured I'd write a short review on Wiz Khalifa's highly anticipated rap album titled Rolling Papers, I'm aware that this was leaked and that the general population probably dislikes rap music but whatever.
I'll start off by saying, overall the album is pretty subpar. Any Wiz fans expecting anything remotely close to Kush and OJ will be disappointed. The beats are decent but employ heavy basslines commonly used for radio singles, no "We're Done" or "The Kid Frankie"-esque music is to be found here. His lyrics are still pretty decent throughout but the wordplay and unique sound that he has developed over the years has seemingly vanished as the album seems like a CD full of radio singles instead of a CD of Wiz Khalifa. With that said, I've been a Wiz fan for a while and I'm pretty critical of his recent move towards the mainstream, there is a lot of music to be enjoyed here and I'm sure many people will like it but in my opinion, he's done better. I just hope he bounces back to his old style.
