    Blacc Hollywood makes you want to come along for the ride.

    Clamping down and checking out rarely sounded as good as it does on Blacc Hollywood, and sometimes it's even Greta-Garbo-"I want to be alone" good.

    While the misses hold Blacc Hollywood back from being great, Wiz still reminds listeners that regardless of what they’re looking for, he’s capable of providing.

    Melodies coast, but they don’t always stick; everything’s too mannered, too clean, and the album is marred by a clinicality further punctuated by its bonus tracks.

    Hollywood is an improvement over 2012’s O.N.I.F.C., but it serves an overly similar purpose.
  6. Every sign of the street has been gentrified, though the weed references never cease.

    Khalifa’s 2011 breakthrough, Rolling Papers, compensated for his bland rapping with sticky pop hooks, and even his 2012 snoozer, O.N.I.F.C., offered some varied production to offset the tedium, but there are no such respites on Blacc Hollywood, an album every bit as vacant and unappealing as the artist who made it.

    It's a good album, for someone who "just wants to listen to music" and doesn't care about lyrics.
    And even with the lyrics being bad, Cameron
    It's a good album, for someone who "just wants to listen to music" and doesn't care about lyrics.
    And even with the lyrics being bad, Cameron still talks about the things he does, cares/cares not about and enjoys and expresses who he is, what he does, why he does it and so-forth, and isn't that what we want our rappers to do? To be who they are?

It's very different from his previous albums (Rolling Papers & ONIFC) dueAs I'm writing this right now, Blacc Hollywood is Wiz's best album. It's very different from his previous albums (Rolling Papers & ONIFC) due to how diverse the tracks are, however lyrically it's almost pretty much the same. I found the album to be "fun" but the downside to the album is it lacked direction but strangely, it was something I also found so good about the album. Expand

    Compared to "Show and Prove", and even "Rolling Papers", Wiz Khalifa's new LP feels like he's had too much alcohol and marijuana. The onlyCompared to "Show and Prove", and even "Rolling Papers", Wiz Khalifa's new LP feels like he's had too much alcohol and marijuana. The only song where I hear some sort of rapping is "House in the Hills" featuring up and coming rapper Curren$y. I was disappointed in the obsessive use of Auto-Tuned in the average lyrics. I'm not a fan if this new "Trap Wiz". Expand

    Wiz Khalifa seems to be one of the most genuine in the industry, and the positive energy surrounding the music is loving, but the experienceWiz Khalifa seems to be one of the most genuine in the industry, and the positive energy surrounding the music is loving, but the experience itself is just plain boring and repetitive on "Blacc Hollywood".

    From themes to production, to Wiz struggle with bars, it varies as little as Kanye's interviews lately. Though continuing from track "The Sleaze", it leaps higher than ever, serving some fresh and more ear-grabbing hooks and raps than to say.. the two/thirds. But even so, appearing on track nine of an album of thirteen it is not enough when the highlights comes up so late in. And while Wiz probably wont (at this point) top the brilliance and cohesion of "Kush & Orange Juice", on the debut album the following singles, at least showed his charm and some catchy pop tunes.
    "House In The Hills" is wonderful compared to a handful, featuring some afro influenced production and introspective lyrics of his life- lifestyle[s] and characteristics people like to jab on to him. "Promises" is him singing (kind of?), actually doing the better job here than his rapping, almost asking myself "why not more?" when most is rambling of rap-speak, sing-song-rapping with production instead at the end being the more attractive attraction. But the only replay-valued tracks really are the ones left of off the standard LP.
    Wiz has shown that he is capable of making an album, but this time, the rhymes and songs are not memorable, just worn off, literally, as the word itself being thrown into this album.
    The songcrafting is less joyful and more of a hashtag rap on "Blacc Hollywood". The mixtapes prior to this, in my opinion were somewhat enjoyable, fun and original to his sound, the trap/club project "Blacc Hollywood" may not be something already too familiar to Wiz' catalogue, sonically, and that is pretty much the lacking.. Wiz does not sound witty nor smooth nor creative and new over these instrumentals as others already mastering it.
    This is pretty much background music, and it is fine as that so long beats slaps, cause other than that digging deeply in is where you find nothing much.

But, execution is the key to success and there is little variety in his works on the CD. A new sounding voice with the same old same old. Short on quality word play (read; lyrics) or appealing songs to my ear (read: beats) i didn't find much to like on the CD. plenty of guest appearances sprinkled on the CD as well, but they couldn't save this thing. Pass. Expand

    This album is repetitive, bad produced, and most of all, LAZYY. Nothing special, just crap after crap .
