Feb 16, 2016On Khalifa, there isn’t much that raises nor lowers Wiz’s stock and after a couple more play throughs the album comes across as fairly average.
Feb 11, 2016Khalifa, the album, is influenced by the "See You Again" sound, and yet that mammoth single's inclusion would've helped round out a set of tracks that aren't nearly as direct in their lyrics or intent. These expansive cuts surely benefit the Wiz discography, and will do best when shuffled into his canon, but lump them together into one LP and take away the driving influence and Khalifa feels more like part of a continuum than a self-contained statement.
Feb 11, 2016On Khalifa, he's characteristically mellow and melodic, mixing rhymes that are part equal parts braggadocio and motivational slogans in an almost singular pursuit of highs and riches. By design, none of the songs stand out, save for the Travis Scott featuring "Bake Sale," which wins mostly by sounding like an aired-out version of Scott's own hit "Antidote."
Feb 11, 2016Khalifa likely won’t sway opinion of Wiz Khalifa, whether positive or negative. For better or worse, it’s a portrait of the rapper we’ve seen for years. It does do things a little more consistently and adds a little more detail than what we’re used to seeing.
Feb 12, 2016It delves as far as it can without hitting government-name territory, and for that the true fans will embrace it. But how many times can you retell the same story?
Feb 11, 2016Khalifa mostly circles the drain of clichés and love letters to his favorite activity: smoking weed. It’s only when he lets himself get a little weird, and flexes underused strengths like his singing voice, that his music is as fun as he wants it to be.
Feb 11, 2016Wiz has a decent feel for hooks and occasionally does some interesting things with melody. But it’s simply not enough to retain interest.

Feb 20, 2016For an album that consists of material that did not make his prior albums, expectations have to be tempered. Khalifa continually comes throughFor an album that consists of material that did not make his prior albums, expectations have to be tempered. Khalifa continually comes through with clever and memorable hooks. Occasionally the melody matches, but is otherwise underwhelming. Celebrate, Elevated, City View, and iSay have similar nuances to some of Wiz's larger mainstream hits. Other tracks provide more of a Taylor Gang mixtape feel. Good mix of songs that will keep listeners occupied until the release of Rolling Papers II later this year.… Expand
Feb 12, 2016Okay Wiz Khalifa's album is a good album and here is why.First off this album is slightly more structured than Blacc Hollywood because WizOkay Wiz Khalifa's album is a good album and here is why.First off this album is slightly more structured than Blacc Hollywood because Wiz focuses on the album as a whole compared to his last album whereby he was aiming to make hit singles and that ended up mixing the tone of Blacc Hollywod.Khalifa however is way less commercial and for the first half of this album wiz puts his heart into it.
The album starts off with the track BTS which is simple then Wiz remains consistent with tracks like Celebrate(FT.Rico Love) and Cowboy until the momentum of the album drops in the second half from the track Make a Play and from here Wiz is just rapping about generic stuff he raps about in every album/mix tape(weed,money and taylor gang) which is a bit disappointing because it doesn't offer much creativity until the last two songs of the album redeem the album's focused but chill tone with Lit(FT. Ty Dolla Sign) and iSay(FT. juicy j).
One small let down in this album was Wiz's lack of creative lyrics,most of his lyrics were lax and overly simple,but fortunately the good production saved Wiz and I promise you every chorus in this album was catchy and well done especially Cowboy and City View(FT. Courtney Noelle) and no song in this album is horrible.
The best tracks are Cowboy,Celebrate,Lit(FT. Ty dolla sign)( which had a great change of beat) and finally Call waiting which was undoubtably the best song because he sang(don't worry it's pretty good) it was more like a jazz track and was awesome I just wish he could have done more of this.The weaker tracks are Most of Us,Zoney and Make a Play and the best features were Rico Love,Travis Scott and Ty Dolla sign.
What you can say about Khalifa is that Wiz put effort is this album,sure his lyrics felt a bit too chill but it was less jumbled up compared to his last album,but then again his oversimplified lyrics lack of focus and momentum in the second half bring this album down but thankfully not too much and was able to be better than his last album and felt this was just a starter to Rolling Papers 2 which will drop later,but Khalifa was a good enough experience.… Expand
