Pittsburgh MC's first tape since 'Rolling Papers' is a return to the spaced-out stoner-rap of 'Kush & OJ'
"I swear I got so high last night I don't remember falling asleep," Wiz Khalifa begins his new Taylor Allderdice mixtape. As the laid-back Pittsburgh rapper indicated not long ago on his Tumblr, the Rolling Papers star's follow-up to last year's Cabin Fever mixtape is a slight return to the cohesive spaciness of 2010's Kush & OJ mixtape — where Khalifa really found his groove, after an early success that found him rapping over incongruous stuff like Alice Deejay's "Better Off Alone." Accordingly, Khalifa's latest is full of deceptively casual observations about the everyday life of a genial perma-stoner, albeit with slightly more expansive production. Beatmakers here include Spaceghostpurrp, Lex Luger, and the Taylor Gang's own Cardo. Guests include Rick Ross, Taylor Gang associates Juicy J and Chevy Woods, and Khalifa's new fiancée, model-actress Amber Rose.
Download Taylor Allderdice below, and file it next to recent mixtapes from Schoolboy Q, say, or fellow weed lover Curren$y (though not his regrettable rap-rock tape Muscle Car Chronicles, though — look for Styles P team-up #The1st28). Smoke 'em if you've got 'em and don't have to work today. (SXSW, we see you!)
