2010 XXL Freshman Wiz Khalifa has both titled his forthcoming major label debut album and revealed his release date . The Pittsburgh, PA MC took to his Twitter account earlier to announce: “Rolling Papers: March 29”

As previously reported, along with Stargate, who were responsible for his platinum selling hit, “Black & Yellow,” Wiz has gone into the studio with The Neptunes’s Pharrell Williams and Jim Jonsin. While the other producers are unknown, Young Khalifa is certain he has some bangers in store for fans.

“Everything that we drop after ‘Black and Yellow’ is going to do as well or better,” Khalifa told billboard.com. “‘Black & Yellow’ was just supposed to be a set-up record. We haven’t even gotten into the good stuff. So with ‘Black and Yellow’ taking off and people getting behind it and supporting it that much, that’s just great, great for what’s going to happen after that. I mean, I just feel that good about it.”

Last Sunday Wiz performed his hometown theme song at the Pittsburgh Steelers Vs. NY Jets AFC Championship game. —Elan Mancini

"Love me or hate me it's one or the other. Always has been. Hate my game, hate my swagger, hate my fade-away, my hunger, hate that i'm a veteran, A champion, hate that. Hate it with all your heart, and hate that i'm loved for the exact same reasons." - Kobe

ya know this guys not half bad. I think hes light years ahead of all the rappers up and coming.
But serious question....
why does he always look disconnected in his pics. Like he never looks at the [expletive]ing camera. Maybe its only the pics Ive seen. But its the same with the one in the op. I think hes Photophobia, aka fear of photography.
Either that or hes just super high and has A.D.D.
But I like his raps though. Hip hop cat. good stuff.

Wiz is super overrated. He has like 5 or so songs I really like though. Boarding Pass, This Plane, Extra Extra Credit are of the few. The rest he's just talking about weed and sounds pretty blown while recording. Just not my style.

I agree that all Wiz music is pretty much about weed, spending money.. getting high and b*tches BUT..

Songs from his Kush & OJ album Mezmorized, Never been & in the cut are the jammmmz! :rock:

Wiz has nothing going for him IMO to make him interesting

Subject matter? Weak he only talks about weed and in all honesty he's not even the best at weed talk. Curren$y is much better at weed talk and a better lyricist a well. Also from my perspective much more believable.

Voice? Is crap he's so annoying. I want to pull my ears put listening to him. He makes eminem, yelawolf, drake sound like angels on the mic.

Lyrics? Basic, elementary, been used before. He basically has stolen almost all of curren$ys swagger and isn't even good at it. Again curren$y is much more believable. Spitta is a much better listen.

Albums? Curren$y has released 2 albums in the last year and each album has drawn critical praise like crazy and has been considered top 5 rap albums of the year. Khalifa is just being marketed like crazy. What's funny is a lot of khalifas fans don't even know who spitta despite the fact that spitta helped engineer khalfas swagger.

I'll give khalifa props for his Beats he chooses because he's chosen well and I think his name is pretty cool I guess. But that skinny guy is average at best with such a ridiculously loyal fan base for reasons I will never know
