Wiz Khalifa Rolls Out Album Title, Release Date

Wiz Khalifa

After much anticipation, Wiz Khalifa gave his fans the answers to their burning questions: What’s the name of his new album and when will it drop?

Fresh off his performance at Sunday’s AFC Championship Game, an admittedly nervous Wiz took to Ustream to announce the title and release date for his Atlantic Records debut. “The official release date for the Wiz Khalifa album is March 29,” said the rapper, sporting a yellow patch in his hair. “The name of the album is Rolling Papers.”

The “Black and Yellow” hitmaker broke down the title’s significance. “It’s an appropriate title. It’s called Rolling Papers, like the papers that you roll, the papers that I roll, the papers that we smoke. But it’s deeper than that too. I thought of this before I even started recording the album and before it was a full idea. It’s not just about the weed thing. It’s bigger than that. My career really took off when I started smoking papers.

“The second reason I called it Rolling Papers is when I left Warner Bros. [Records], I sort of got my ‘rolling papers.’ I got my contract, fu**ing rolled up and smoked. And I was able to walk and I was able to leave and I was able to do my thing and I was able to capitalize off that. So that’s another pair of papers that I really needed in my life.

“The third reason why I named it Rolling Papers, I quit writing a long time ago. I stopped physically writing it down or putting it in my BlackBerry or iPhone. I write notes down, but I don’t write whole verses, so it was like saying goodbye to the paper. The paper’s rolling out too. So everything is real natural. The first thing that came to my head is how I really, really feel. I feel like this is my most natural sound. I paid the most attention to this shit when I did it. I was real focused. I was real keyed in on this shit when I was working on it and I didn’t use any paper, except for [the rolling papers].”

Snoop Dogg, Rick Ross, Too $hort, and Curren$y are expected to make appearances on the album. A tracklisting and cover art will be revealed in the coming weeks.

    Wiz makes great smoking music, but he’s over rated. I think the album will do good because of his female fans. Ill get it on bootleg! Wiz please no autotune and I love the vanilla ice hair color.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance. I must say you have done a fantastic job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very fast for me on Opera. Outstanding Blog!
