Music: Wiz Khalifa - Blacc Hollywood

2014-08-29 16:00


In a nutshell: He may have been around since 2005, but it's only been recently that the world has come to recognise Wiz Khalifa. With singles like Black and Yellow and the more recent We Dem Boys, Wiz has sealed himself as hip hop's rock star. He released his 5th studio album, Blacc Hollywood, recently

What’s it like: Like a Friday afternoon light up. Lyrically Blacc Hollywood is filled to the brim with weed references, but what else could you expect from a rapper who has his whole image on being a stoner. Musically, Blacc Hollywood continues Wiz's trademark laid back tunes that are as smooth as butter. It's one big weed party, punctured occasionally by Wiz's goofy laugh.

Fave Bit: The hit single We Dem Boyz, is without a doubt a stand out track on an album almost always talking about the same thing. But another favourite is Raw, where Wiz talks about taking a flight to the stars with Miley Cyrus. We would love to be a fly on the wall on that flight!

Rating:  Apart from the infectious We Dem Boyz", Blacc Hollywood is traditional Wiz- filled with chilled hip hop beats and references to getting high. It may not be classic Wiz, but fans of the rapper will be more than happy with this release.   4/5
