Wiz Khalifa and the rest of the Taylor gang team up to drop this quick 8 track EP for fans. This one plays through rather quickly and has a pretty consistent vibe throughout the whole thing. There’s not really a ton to go over with this one. The lyrics are about what you would expect from Wiz Khalifa. Features include Chevy Woods, 6AM, Ty Dolla Sign, and more. The beats are pretty consistent as you go through the album. There are times where it almost sounds like you are listening to the same song over and over again and you can’t really even differentiate between songs. That aside, it’s not really a bad project. This is probably more of a one and done set, but it’s still worth a listen.
Wiz Khalifa drops a new album that is pretty dope overall. I can almost understand how it could make someone want to smack a DJ to get it played. In all honesty, it is a pretty dope record. Lyrically, you get what you expect from Wiz Khalifa. He is going to tell you about his rich and partying lifestyle and his massive amounts of Kush that is being smoked. The beats on here are definitely pretty interesting. He gets some beats that sample some crowd favorites so you should be able to find more than a few beats that appeal to the masses. “Big Daddy Wiz” and “Memory Lane” are perfect examples of this. All in all, Wiz did a good job and I can see how he would be excited about this release.
Wiz Khalifa, Big K.R.I.T., and Smoke DZA come together with producer Girl Talk to give us a very musical new album for fans. With 3 different MCs, it was a lot of unique sounds coming together. I think all three did fairly okay on the mic with the bars. There’s nothing really earth-shattering on here as far as lyrics go. The beats were definitely upbeat and had a lot more instrumentation in them. If you’re looking for boom bap beats, this was definitely not the project for you. All in all they put together an interesting and pretty decent project here with this one.
Juicy J & Wiz Khalifa join forces to drop a new project for fans and this one really hit nicely. This was a fantastic combination that is what we needed to hear. Their styles mesh together perfectly. Juicy J brings that classic Memphis sound and sprinkles it with his signature style. Wiz Khalifa speeds his style up just a tad and spits rhymes that complement Juicy perfectly. They spit bars littered with opulence and partying in the way that only they could. From front to back, this album plays through really solidly. It’s uncanny how well of a bond that these two MCs have and their styles complement each other almost flawlessly. This is a very good body of work that fans will definitely appreciate.
Wiz Khalifa enlists 2 producers to help him out with this latest mixtape. This one definitely has more of a laid back vibe to it than previous ones. The beats are more of a mellow escape and very appropriate to put on when you are having a smoking session. On the mic, Wiz is braggadocious and confident as ever. He will tell you about the extravagant life that he lives. There really isn’t anything super complex to the wordplay or the rhyme scheme. It’s just Wiz doing what he does. You either roll with him or you don’t. Not a bad effort at all from Wiz.
Wiz drops off a new mixtape right as the year changes over. This one is rather weak compared to other releases that he has had. With 24 tracks, he shows us a bunch of “half-songs” that a lot of them barely get to 2 minutes long. His bars are pretty standard. You’re getting the same old Wiz Khalifa on every song with talking about smoking weed and partying with crew. The beats on here are pretty standard as well. The whole tape kind of blends together as a lot of the songs sound similar. It really sounds like a lot of throwaway songs or demos that just didn’t make the cut. Skipping over this project, you won’t really be missing out on anything.
Wiz Khalifa hits us with the deluxe version of The Saga Of Wiz Khalifa album. The first one was a bit thrown together at only 7 tracks. This one adds a fresh set of 8 new songs onto the previous 7. I think he definitely fleshed it out a bit more with some better songs. The added 8 seem to play through a bit better than the previous ones. They have a bit more of a “song” feel to them where he sat down and really thought out the sequences and lyrics. All in all, this brought the overall quality of the whole project up a bit. I think Wiz did a great job with the lyrics and selecting the music for these new tracks. Wiz fans will definitely want to check this one out.
Wiz Khalifa comes back with a brand new package. This one is a bit laid back, but in classic Wiz style. He offers some decent rhymes throughout. You pretty much get what you expect from Wiz on the mic. The beats on here are decent as well. Sometimes when there are slower, more dreamy type beats, it can get boring. In this case though, Wiz keeps the momentum moving throughout the tape. His adlibs at the end of “Player Shit” are pretty inspiring and pretty well spoken. That was definitely a dope and heartfelt way to end the mixtape. All in all, Wiz got another batch of some dopeness for y’all.
Wiz comes through with another project that sort of sounds thrown together. It’s not really a bad project, but it definitely feels like they picked up all of the throw away tracks and put them together. On the mic, you get the same ol, weed smoking and partying Wiz which is fun if nothing else. The beats are pretty decent overall. They are fun and definitely give you a party vibe. This isn’t really going to be a memorable project, but it’s something to throw on if you are partying.
This is a true definition of what a mixtape is supposed to sound like. Wiz Khalifa might not be the greatest lyricist ever, but the way he constructed this project is true to form of what a mixtape is supposed to sound like. At only 7 tracks, he seems to body every single one with his fun flow and expert beat selecting. You really won’t find a bad track on here. He mixes it up with classic rap tracks and some classic R&B surprises. It’s the perfect mix of music, bars, and flow. My only wish is that this project would have been longer. He did a fantastic job with this one.
Wiz drops off a massive collection of songs and freestyles for fans. The thing that was a little bit annoying about this rollout is that every song was released at different times. It was a gradual rollout of all the songs instead of everything at once. When I first saw this, it was 4 songs. Then before I knew it, it was up to 27 songs. I think that is the full package now and should stay that way. That aside, this was a pretty decent collection overall. Wiz does his same thing on the mic. He might not be lyrically mind-bending, but he isn’t supposed to be. This is basically music to smoke and vibe out to. He’s great at what he does. And this collection is definitely that. The best song on here is “Presidents” with it’s laid back flow and intensely catchy hook. He really outdid himself with that song. Also, there are some great freestyles at the end of the project over some really classic beats like “I Used To Love H.E.R.” You definitely don’t want to pass on this project but you do want to pass that KK.
Wiz drops off another project and this one is pretty much like all the rest (not a bad thing). Wiz is the type of MC that it really doesn’t matter what he says anymore, people will appreciate it because he has a good flow. That is pretty much what this album is all about. He’s just having fun and spitting rhymes over some laid back, groovy, smoking beats. It’s what he does best. There’s nothing that really stands out crazy on this record at all. This is the type of project you throw on in the background and just vibe out and do whatever you are doing. Not a whole lot of attention is required. Again, not a bad record, it just kind of flows along.
Wiz and Currensy drop off another album in the same month which is almost all but unheard of. This one is a little bit more laid back sonically than the How Fly album. As far as the rhymes, you pretty much get what you expect from the both of them. Both spit their fun-loving, weed-scented, rich-talking rhymes. Currensy even seems to speed up his flow a bit to match Wiz. The beats tend to be a little bit more of a laid-back feel to them. You aren’t really going to get any neck-snapping beats on here with the exception of maybe the first song “Garage Talk.” This is probably the highlight of the album. This is more of the type of album that you throw on first thing in the morning when you wake up. This is more of some “driving to work” music. All in all, I think they did a decent job on this project.
The best way to describe this mixtape is “fun.” You combine the smoking brothers Currensy and Wiz Khalifa and you are definitely in for some good times. Currensy brings his signature slower New Orleans drawl and pairs it with Wiz Khalifa’s laughing and fun-loving style to create a pretty decent record. None of the rhymes you hear are mind-blowing bars, but at the same time, they are not supposed to be. The beats on here are mostly up-tempo and light-hearted as well. This is maybe something to throw on while you make a road trip or maybe even at a BBQ. I think fans of both artists will appreciate this one.
This was a pretty boring album from almost front to back. You get the same old boring weed raps from Wiz on here. Sure he is basically the new incarnation of Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg, but it gets boring hearing about Khalifa Kush and how you get high as a plane over and over and over again. Tell me something else. Tell me something new. Speaking of “Something New” that is really the only great song on here. He enlists Ty Dolla Sign for that song and it sounds amazing. I guess that was a good way to end this entirely too long butchery of an album. Somehow, 25 tracks for Wiz Khalifa is just way too much. It works for some artists, but it didn’t work here. I think Wiz shines best when he is featured on a song and not the main star for an album’s length of time. Another song that wasn’t terrible was “Gin And Drugs” featuring the West Coast MC Problem. This track sampled the classic Biggie song “Going Back To Cali” and both MCs flowed pretty good over it. With the exception of these songs, you can pretty much throw out the rest. There’s nothing that you are really going to see in the hip hop hall of fame from this project.
This was just straight trash. I like Wiz and he’s a good dude and all, but bruh, c’mon. Hot garbage at it’s core right here. This album does absolutely nothing to move the culture forward or to test the boundaries of hip-hop. The lyrics are boring. They are all about smoking weed and some braggadocio mixed in there. The beats are boring as well. There was nothing that stuck with me after listening. I found myself just wishing that the record was over the entire time I was listening to it. This was probably one of the most boring projects I have listened to in awhile. If this is any indication of what Wiz’s next album is gonna be like, he better hurry up and retire before that.
This album was made for somebody but that somebody probably isn’t me. I don’t wanna say it was bad because I can understand how someone would like this project. This is just not 100% my cup of tea. I like Wiz Khalifa and I like Ty Dolla Sign. This obviously isn’t a project filled with complex rhymes and boom bap beats but rather, a showcase for the Taylor Gang and their artists. I think this is something to smoke and chill out and to. It’s sounds like a very simple assessment but I would say that this album “is what it is.” This is probably going to resonate with a younger crowd before it would resonate with an older crowd. If you are a fan of Wiz and the other Taylor gang artists, I would definitely say to peep this joint out. I would say as a generic statement, that the first half of the record is better than the second half. I think just about anyone can find something they could vibe to on here but it may take an open mind.
This album is not really worth listening to at all. I like Juicy J but this sounds like a lot of throwaway tracks. Every track is basically the same as the previous one. If you’ve heard one club track about smoking weed and taking pills, you’ve heard them all. Do a hard pass on this one. Only reason I am giving it any kind of rating is because I like Juicy J’s style. This album def didn’t do anything for me though.
