There is a reason coming-of-age films like Dazed and Confused, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, The Myth of the American Sleepover, and Palo Alto all revolve around the same three things: sex, drugs, and youth. The reason is that they are one and same. This is the mixtape that understands that.
Much like those coming-of-age films, it is about not letting the little things bother you and seeing the bigger picture in a small town setting. It is about having the clearest ideas under the cloudiest circumstances and about dark times from which you rise above. It’s about getting really, really high and staying there for a week. It is about traveling to a foreign city and fucking shit up with your friends. It’s about the things you can only do when you’re young. Or maybe it’s just the soundtrack.
Don’t tell my momma I’ve been smoking
Just as we were beginning to forget about him, Wizzle-man comes out and gives us the very long awaited collaboration with Abel Tesfaye, aka The Weeknd. “Remember You” definitely sounds like a Weeknd song, electronic and boding, but Wiz sounds right at home. The Pittsburgh emcee has been working to get back to his Kush & OJ sound that made him famous, and that’s sure as hell not a bad thing. Unfortunately there’s no download yet, but make sure you grab ONIFC on December 4th and check out the lyrics from Rap Genius. TGOD
Planet VI, Wiz Khalifa, & Ariez Onasis bring you this latest banger, No Limit.
In case anyone was wondering, Planet VI is the new name for one of my favorite groups back in the day, Rock City. “Rock City” used to be my shit a while back. This is probably the first time I’ve heard from these guys in ages.
Anyways, this is a banger as they recruit Wiz & Ariez Onasis. Peep it!
I guess this song leaked a while ago, because it’s been on my radar for a while, but we now officially have a Wizzle x Tity Boi collab. This Drumma Boy track is set to have a home on Wiz’s sophomore album O.N.I.F.C., according to Wikipedia, so take that for what it’s worth. O.N.I.F.C. is set to drop later this year, and of course check out the lyrics from RapGenius, TRUUUU
I love this video.
Chris Brown gives “Till I Die” the visual treatment and it’s a hell of a ride, if you’re under the influence. It’s still funny regardless, though.
Best verse: Big Sean
Best part in the video: Wiz Khalifa. I keep watching his part and keep dying. Wiz is toooo funny. Swag walkin all through the video!
Cameos: Snoop A Loooop and his green hat, Method Man, Redman, Andy Milonakis, and Kreayshawn.
Best watched with THC all up in your cream.
Wiz just dropped off this brand new single via his twitter. If you’re familiar with How I Met Your Mother (I’ve spent the past week watching it on Netflix) we’re going to a sidebar:
- Wiz apologized for Rolling Papers being “commercial.”
- I liked Taylor Allderdice a lot.
- His lyrics are getting old…fast.
I consider myself an honest and open guy. When it comes to women, I don’t hesitate to tell them what’s up. Why lie, ya know? I’m kind of doing that here with Wiz Khalifa’s brand new project, Taylor Allderdice. This marks his first effort since his debut album, Rolling Papers.
What exactly am I doing with Taylor Allderdice? Well, I’m giving this a post without even listening in hopes it lives up to expectations. Basically telling you that it’s good and you should definitely have it in your library. Keeping it real here on the keyboard. Hopefully, Wiz Khalifa drops us another masterpiece in the mixtape game. The anticipation for this project is pretty crazy if you ask me. The only samples I’ve herad off of Taylor Allderdice are California, and My Favorite Song (guilty pleasure for Juicy J), both of which are fucking amazing and reminds me why I liked Wiz in the first place.
Get your papers, and raise your lighters. Taylor Gang Or Die.
Wiz Khalifa has publicly apologized for his debut album “Rolling Papers.” I’ll be the first to say that this brings nothing, but joy to me. The pop heavy album was too commercial for my taste, and his mixtape Kush & OJ is one of my all time favorite mixtapes, so if he can return to his form (and not Atlantics) then Wiz will be back to being considered one of the top emcees in the game.
Cheers to the hopes that Wiz will drop his next album in Kush & OJ form!
I’ve always found the week after the Super Bowl somewhat bland. I mean, the Super Bowl is such a climax for much of the sports world, and anything that comes after it just doesn’t seem as exciting or big. But boy, basketball took that notion and was like, “sorry, I’m not sorry” this week.
First of all, this Jeremy Lin kid is legit, no? Alright, yeah I never followed him before this week either, but how could you not respect a great underdog story? From undrafted to starting point guard in Madison Square Garden, aka the mecca of professional basketball. That’s fucking awesome. I’m looking forward to tonight’s matchup between him and the Lakers. #Linsanity #SuperLintendo #Linning
Then, there was the already classic battle in college ball between UNC and Lydia’s alma mater, Duke. Austin Rivers was so clutch. See Lydia’s reaction below.

So, here’s a toast to a great week of sports and hopefully an even better weekend for the rest of us non-professional athletes. What’s everybody up to?
1. “Bad Girls (Barbaric Merits ChainBangin Remix)” – M.I.A.
2. “Move Up (Wiz Khalifa x Phantogram)” – The Hood Internet
3. “Paris (DOCO Dubstep Remix)” – Kanye West & Jay-Z
4. “Make You Pop” – Diplo & Don Diablo
5. “Marvin & Chardonnay (Chiddy Bang Cover)” – Big Sean
Here’s Microsoft’s new Bing Commercial, featuring Wiz Khalifa.
I was surprised to see Microsoft go with a spokesperson such as Wiz for their brand, but hey, can’t say I’m not a fan.
Ah, the magic that can happen when two stoners combine forces. It’s not exactly a surprise that Wiz and Domo “Mr. Smoke a Lot of Pot” Genesis love their marijuana, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that these two finally came together to make some music.
There was potential for a slight beef when Wiz released his album “Rolling Papers” after Domo had already released his “Rolling Papers” mixtape, but the two have apparently put it in their past.
It’s really cool seeing Wolf Gang members starting to work with bigger names, and this is definitely a trend that will continue…I, for one, am completely anticipating some work between Tyler and Kanye. Call it a longshot–I call it inevitable. Kanye loves pushing buttons and pushing boundaries, and Tyler is clearly well rehearsed in those two departments.
Can you imagine the kind of shit they’d put out together? Sound off in the comments if you foresee any other upcoming collaborations with OF members, and let me know how you feel about Domo working with Wiz.
Can’t be a king if you’ve got a castle made of sand/ I take it bit by bit, I’m gonna make it stand/ These niggas never had a chance/ Snowball effect, keep it rollin’ make it avalanche
Cardo on the beat.
Taylor Gang. Wolf Gang. Baw baw baw.
The mash up duo from Chicago is back with another indie track laced with hip-hop swagger. This time, The Hood Internet blend the psych pop of Phantogram with bars by weed-enthusiast Wiz Khalifa. Neat!
