Fly Solo - Wiz Khalifa - Rolling Papers (CD, Album) download full album zip cd mp3 vinyl flac
Light, airy synths are the dominant force here, with a few forays into even poppier territory. B, lite rap-rock at its finest. The beat is, simply put, a masterpiece. Underneath the tune that characterizes the track is a menacing, complex beast of a song that lurches forward with nearly tangible momentum.
Wiz fills a lot of verses without saying anything, a lot of catchiness without any real content. In his mixtape streak leading up to the release of this album, Wiz has established a persona in which he raps mostly about money, weed and girls.
He sticks to that persona here. In his defense, you are warned from the beginning what this album will be about.
Album ReviewsC-Wiz Khalifa. Pretty Much Amazing Fly Solo - Wiz Khalifa - Rolling Papers (CD a music blog started in and maintained by Daniel, a self-proclaimed music nerd. PMA used to be a daily publication. Inthis site will exist as an archive to more than 11, posts on music, including over 1, album reviews. Somewhere in between all of those, Wiz released O. The lead single "Work Hard, Play Hard" was an omen, if any, that this iteration of Wiz would continue the somewhat depressing trend of an abundance of tantalizing crooning instead of guttural rap shouts.
He'd become delusional in his pop star success with "Black and Yellow" ; now evident in the album's outlandish cover, Wiz was in full diva mode. Sure, there were ethereal, smooth cuts like "Paperbond" that captured the deep blues of the Fly Solo - Wiz Khalifa - Rolling Papers (CD, but the sheer arrogance of "No Limit," nearly 10 minutes of ambience punctuated by a half-interested verse or two, practically erases any built good will. Ultimately, the album's creativity, for the sake of carelessness instead of the pursuit of innovation, is its Achilles Heel.
Wiz's second studio album was like night and day compared to the first. He'd grown a little more comfortable with his artistry and created cohesive songs that sounded effortless in composition. He grew more comfortable with his voice as well, actually singing hooks to the point that he felt comfortable with only three features on it. He even touches on some of the more personal aspects of his life, something we typically don't get out of him.
It's perhaps this project that should be the standard commercial introduction to Wiz. Deal or No Deal served as the crossroads where gangster, conscious, and smoker Wiz met. The three variations merged into one and further refined his commercial aesthetic before following this template for the length of his career. While it isn't all that memorable, and suffers from middle-child syndrome, it's still an admirable step in his career that is largely responsible for the comfortable musician that we have today.
It had been two long years since O. But, if its spot on this list is any indication, it wasn't his best album released, although it was a pretty good one. We don't necessarily learn anything about Wiz that we didn't already know, so there's that as well.
Wiz, on a surface level, is consumable on radio and in compilation projects. But Blacc Hollywood shows that projects, no matter the length, expose his lack of content.
To get through them, you have to be invested in his character alone, more so than the music. Rolling Papers has the distinction of being Wiz's first album under a major label. That immediate financial increase can be felt in "Black and Yellow" where Wiz trades in the grittiness for glamour. Without trying, he ended up making one of the most recognizable, and most widely utilized, rap songs in recent history. Production on the project was much more expensive, lush, and elastic — Adele could have hopped on "Fly Solo" or "Cameras" and extrapolated a chart-topping hit.
Yet Wiz created an album that withstands the test of time. His playfulness and juvenile wonder shine through the album and paint a Album) of a man determined to build a playground for weed Fly Solo - Wiz Khalifa - Rolling Papers (CD of the future. His willingness to go without an enormous number of features enabled the world to get a glimpse of who he is, even if he didn't clue us in too much of his backstory.
In small doses, Rolling Papers is everything that Wiz represents — freedom, easygoing and, of course, Album), cool.
Sequels often have it harder than the originals, across any medium. No matter how good the first one is, the sequel has to be better. So, the creator has to figure out the pros and cons of the first and make sure that the next go around, the second improves on everything that made it faulty in the first place.
When Wiz revealed his recently released album to be called Rolling Papers 2he had his work cut out against him to make the project exceed the authenticity of the first which hit shelves in But Wiz wisely meets expectations and creates a gigantic album that exceeds not solely because of its enormous length. What helps Wiz to continue to succeed is that he's really not looking to reinvent the wheel or drastically change his persona at this point.
He's had his entire career for that. Now he's dillydallying in the playground that he built for himself over the last decade or so, connecting the dots to create magnanimous hits that lack corporeal concepts. He hits trap production, some smooth singing vocals, and flat-out raps. Wiz is clearly just having fun at this point — and it works.
