Wiz Khalifa "Rolling Papers 2" Review

Wiz Khalifa has been in the rap game for over a decade, consistently delivering stoner party anthems periodically peppered with a more heartwarming touch. Although there isn’t really much wrong with his formula, the longevity is tested on the twenty-five track Rolling Papers 2; unfortunately, the simple pleasures weed, women, and gin begin to get stale. That being said, there are still plenty uplifting moments, provided you can sift through countless references smoking Khalifa Kush, forgetting women’s names after having sex with them, being a boss, and generally living lavish.

The title track “Rolling Papers 2” centers around the choices we make and the consequences our actions, but moments introspection like this are few and far between. Instead, Wiz celebrates his favorite pastimes in almost the same way on every track. It’s tolerable on a case by case basis, but becomes monotonous when absorbed as a complete body work; I enjoyed the album much more after breaking it down in segments. 

Thankfully, the production is phenomenal across the board. It’s no surprise, given the project is handled by an elite team producers including Mike Will Made It, longtime collaborators Sledren and Cardo, TM88, Young Chop, I.D. Labs and the legendary Easy Mo Bee. Sonically there remains enough variance between songs to make each one feel unique. Sadly, with the exception “B Ok,” there’s virtually no difference in content. Nobody is necessarily expecting Wiz to be a high tier lyrical rapper – not to say that he isn’t capable it – but he’s always been able to make comfortable and enjoyable music. However, despite claiming otherwise, it does feel like he’s gotten somewhat complacent in his success.

Some the most interesting songs on this album are the ones with featured artists. It’s like having someone else on the song forces Wiz to shift slightly out his mellow and melodic comfort zone. “Blue Hunnids,” featuring the late Jimmy Wopo is definitely a standout, at least energy-wise. The back and forth between him and Chevy Woods on “Karate” is thoroughly enjoyable, and Gucci’s verse on “Real Rich” is full palpable joy. “Gin and Drugs” (feat. Problem) is an enjoyable rehashing G-Funk sensibilities, despite feeling almost like an easy cash-in on nostalgia.

Rolling Papers 2 fers ample music for die hard Wiz fans to absorb, but honestly, the sheer volume is overwhelming. Don’t get me wrong. Most the tracks are good, but it feels like there’s too much filler bogging down what might have benefitted from a cohesive approach. While I understand the motivation behind long tracklists in the “streaming era,” there’s something to be said about a concise album. Of course, a sense unity between songs does inherently exist; after all, it’s the same man rapping about the same things.

Still, Wiz does shine on tracks like “Bootsy Bellows,” where he increases his pace, bringing forth a noted sense creativity and urgency to his raps. “B Okay” is easily one the best songs on the album because it’s the most honest. On the I.D. Labs and DJ Khalil produced track, Wiz details some the problems in his widely-publicized relationship with ex-wife Amber Rose, as well as the pain losing his sister. Wiz describes feeling a disconnect in his fame and attempting to feel okay despite feeling jaded about how genuine his interactions are. The inclusion this track is deeply appreciated, as it adds some much-needed substance to the album.

For the most part Rolling Papers 2 is a light hearted journey through the variety styles we’ve seen Wiz Khalifa display over the years. A little trap Wiz. Some r&b Wiz. Even little hints “old” Wiz here and there.  The main problem with the album is the lack proper unity, which culminates in a lengthy run time. While Wiz is no stranger to lengthy albums, he would have most certainly benefited from a little bit pruning. Although he’s amassed an immense fanbase with his laid back rhyme style, the album is most compelling when Wiz stretches himself and experiments a bit with his voice and cadence.

It’s hard to pinpoint the goal Rolling Papers 2, but it seems mostly tailored to provide background music for late night cruising, or simply rolling up the loud and zoning out. Given the run time it might have benefitted from being portioned differently, a double album perhaps, or otherwise given some overarching narrative structure. Still, the bright spots are enough to keep us optimistic. Hopefully this isn’t the last sequel we see from Khalifa. Rumor has it there’s also a Kush and OJ 2 floating around somewhere. Roll up.

Wiz Khalifa's "Rolling Papers 2" Is One To Smoke To: Twitter Reacts

When Wiz Khalifa’s third Rolling Papers dropped in 2011, the rapper was riding one the game’s most prolific mixtape runs. His smoke-fueled aesthetic helped cement him as one hip-hop’s quintessential stoners, and the aspiring marijuana connoisseurs gravitated to him like a king. Now, seven years have passed, and Wiz’s status in the game has cooled down. Though still respected across the board, Wiz has been quiet on the musical front, seemingly more active in the gym than the booth. Yet recent interviews find Wiz at his most focused, and to hear him tell it, he’s never been sharper.

Does that sense focus hold up on his new, gargantuan project Rolling Papers 2? After all, a twenty-five track project is a daunting proposition for any artist; one might very well burn through their entire supply during a continuous play-through. Despite the length, it would appear that many fans are pleased with the album, and the loyalty that Wiz continues to inspire even now is a testament to his legacy. Though it’s entirely possible that the project will take a while to sink it, first impressions are more or less positive. 

Peep some the early Twitter reactions below.

Instagram Gallery: Wiz Khalifa's Happiest, Most Feel-Good Posts

Since Wiz Khalifa’s early-aughts debut his unique brand staccato bars blended with a signature sing-song flow, it was clear that the Pittsburgh-bred rapper wasn’t here to tear anyone down on his climb to the top. From dropping Prince the City: Welcome to Pistolvania to his latest studio release Blacc Hollywood, rap’s top weedhead gunning for Snoop Dogg’s title as the King Kush has never strayed from his positive, chill vibe. Evolving from a mixtape-friendly emcee whose stly-enunciated bars dissipate cleanly over even the most jarring party beats to a streetwear style icon that fully embraces his new role as a supportive father and advocates for positivity, Khalifa has the clout to be an unstoppable force for good – a power that he does not wield lightly. 

Speaking with Pigeons & Planes just days before his latest studio release, Khalifa reflected on his reputation as the most laid-back hip-hop artist on the scene right now, untouched by both Yeezy’s Twitter fingers and the polarizing new wave up-and-coming rappers.

“Happiness is like… you can be a happy person in general, and nothing can ever get you down. Those type people exist. And certain people, you know, they just need something to make them happy,” said Khalifa, rejecting the notion that happiness can be reduced to a temporary state mind.


Take Care Of Yourself 

Before hopping in a steam shower to get his body right after putting in serious hours at the gym in an attempt to bulk up, Khalifa took some time to spread some love on the ‘Gram. “I’m just here to tell you guys, man, take care yourselves,” he said. “Get out there and get movin’, do something positive, do something that you love, be around people that you love…before everybody else, just think about yourself one time, man. If you could do that for me I’d be more than motherfuckin’ happy.”  

Stress Relief

It’s not always easy, but you’ll be happier when you do it,” wrote Khalifa.

Be You

Thankfully, Khalifa is always here to remind his millions Insta followers that to be unique, you just have to be true to yourself. Feeling down? Just remember that no one can do you better than YOU. “The best part about being yourself is no one can do it better than you,” captioned Khalifa. 

You Can Do It

According to the multi-Grammy Award-nominated “Young, Wild & Free” rapper, nothing is out reach if you put your mind to it. “If you want it, no obstacle in the world can stop you from getting it. Might not be exactly when you want it but in the end, you’ll get what’s yours,” wrote Khalifa alongside a candid on-stage snap.

Action Plan

While Khalifa may seem like he has his head stuck in a perpetual cloud smoke, the chart-topping rapper wouldn’t have achieved the success he boasts without seriously grinding to crush his goals. Passing on his own good vibes, Khalifa urges his followers to reach great heights by setting goals and crushing them.

Feel The Love 

Khalifa isn’t afraid to build up his Taylors with positive, feel-good vibes meant to foster the same energy he spits with behind the mic. “I hope you all get everything you want in life,” wrote Wiz. “You deserve it. Love to every Taylor. Smoke up.”

Be Good To Yourself 

On top the backing track  Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together,” Wiz Khalifa waxed lyrics about how in order to do good, you must BE good–to yourself. “Today is all about being good to yourself,” he said, kicking f his plea to his fans. “Take care yourself. Because you can’t help nobody else in this world if you’re not your very best self.”  

 

Motivation

Even an industry veteran like Khalifa who’s living the high life knows what it’s like to feel low. Reaching out to his fans stuck stagnating, Khalifa dropped a heartfelt reminder that they too are worthy. “We all need a little motivation sometimes so today I want you to know exactly how awesome you are,” he wrote. 

Stay Happy

According to Khalifa, if you’re happy with your own lot you won’t look to hate on what others are blessed with. It’s only when you’re truly content with yourself and your own life that you’ll stop looking to the horizon in the hope flipping your reality.  

Wiz Has Your Back
