Rolling Papers review

Today I was offered $40 to wash someones car and another $40 to chauffeur someone to the naval base so they can buy tax free stuff, sounds good to me. While it is spring break and like 80 degrees and I should be at...

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.

  12. Mm, Leonardo DiCap- oh wait, we're here for the music? That's cool too, I guess.

    Seriously though, the music is awesome! Keep me posted like this, because your opinions are perfect! That is, if opinions can be perfect? I'm not sure.
    WHY AM I STILL TYPING?!

  13. I am a fan of wiz, but I don't think it was a good move to go more mainstream.

    He should have waited a bit but the temptation for much much more money was there. I'll still listen of course.

  15. You know what pisses me off about music like this? There's no lyrical skill. All they do is say what/how things are. There's no deeply motivated literary thoughts, no passionate idioms for the way things should be, just; hurr weed slang, bitches, nigga, nigga bitches.

  21. Ohhh Wiz. I don't know why but I just can't get into his music. My girlfriend listens to him all the time and I get so annoyed by it. He is a good artist though, just can't stand it for some reason.
