Album Review

If it wasn’t for “Black and Yellow,” Wiz Khalifa’s story would match the mixtape past of Currensy, Freddie Gibbs, and even Lil Wayne, but that unrepresentative mega-hit — and unofficial Pittsburgh Steelers anthem from the previous Super Bowl season — made Rolling Papers a “highly anticipated” release for a wider audience than usual. Those looking for more singalong sport anthems and party tracks will be severely disappointed with the rapper’s first major-label release, but anyone who has followed the alt-pop side of hip-hop — from B.o.B. on down — will find this familiar ground. Past the big hit, Rolling Papers casts Khalifa as a more earthbound and approachable version of Kid Cudi, or Currensy for the masses, both of which are meant as compliments. They are also meant as cautions for those who don’t appreciate slick productions — crafted by Stargate, I.D. Labs, Jim Jonsin, and others — topped with stoner-ambiguity lyrics. Half of the confused highlight “Roll Up” seems to be about smoking weed, while the other half is about flirting, or being true to your friends, or maybe just “rolling up.” “Hopes and Dreams” is an ironic title for a song about Khalifa’s money going to strippers, while the B.o.B.-like “Cameras” is Kanye’s “Gold Digger” without venom, where fame might be a blessing or it might be a curse. These smoking songs would border on dream states if it wasn’t for Khalifa’s keen sense of melody and fat sack of hooks, and when you take into consideration his growing-up a fan of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, his fellow Midwesterners hold an obvious influence throughout the album, from the free-association rhymes to the full-on embrace of weed. Just like any given Bone album, Khalifa’s chilled and confused Rolling Papers is an acquired taste, and while it’s misrepresented by its single and the mixtapes that surround it, it is purposeful mood music, perfect for bong loading or just hanging out.

SELLOUT

You only get a one for putting in currensy, wiz you're a sellout , you're gono loose respect from the fans that have been there since the start. It's all about mac miller now.

You are only doing these songs that arnt your style so u get radio time and get on music channels for more promotion and money.

Wiz Khalifa

All of you saying you are disappointed are losers. If you want to listen to his old stuff and mixes then keep listening but you can't blame an artist for earning more by going for the main stream route... Wiz is earning more and getting famous by the day... I just think people should stay keen and enjoy Wiz's music if they are a true Taylor.

epitome of b******t

This album is generic as hell which Wiz clearly made just to get sales and radio spins. His old stuff is far better. His subject matter consists of poor rhymes about weed and girls. AVOID
