The description of rap music has transformed in recent years greatly. This transformation isn't to say that gangsta or `southern' rap idioms are dead, but in recent times, rap has become characterized by a more alternative, crossover nature, if you will. Opponents may state this has compromised the style while proponents will state this intellectualizes a rather `unintellectual' genre. Positions aside, promising rapper Wiz Khalifa's major label debut Rolling Papers falls in line with modern rap, much like his contemporaries B.o.B., Drake, and KiD CuDi. On Rolling Papers, Wiz raps, sings, and `smokes' his way through the material. Rolling Papers is well rounded overall, but not quite the home run of Thank Me Later (Drake) or B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray [Explicit] (B.o.B.). Creative, Rolling Papers shines through its flaws.

"When I'm Gone" opens the album with a mysterious tone, highlighted by acoustic piano and an air of introspection. Wiz begins rapping past the one minute mark, allowing the track to build up and simmer into a synth-driven effort. Wiz sings through a lengthy but unifying hook that helps set the tone for this effort. "When I'm Gone" does not mark a valedictory performance, though second cut "On My Level" featuring Too $hort extends the momentum greatly. Jim Jonsin's low key production work is a perfect match for Wiz's stoner rhymes, not to mention a fiery collaboration with underrated rapper Too $hort. "Black and Yellow" is pop er...

Hip Hop's Rookie of the Year, Wiz Khalifa, has been having a buzz in the rap game for a good minute right now. Last year, he caught my attention with his mixtape Kush & OJ full of smoked out songs that anyone can vibe to. Since then I became a fan of his music as well as other mixtapes hes released (most notabily Cabin Fever). One benefit of making mixtapes is that you don't have to worry about your label's hands in what songs you can put out, leaving you in full control of what your fans wanting to hear. So when he releases his debut Rolling Papers you can pretty much can expect its not going to be like those mixtapes hes released in the past, because Atlantic Records is going to try to appeal to a larger crowd focusing on sales. The lead single "Black & Yellow" was catchy enough to give them what they wanted.

With the album itself is not as bad as one would expect. There are a lot of great tracks on here to satisfy fans of Wiz. He works better on dark smoked out beats like "On My Level" featuring Too $hort. "Star of the Show" featuring Chevy Woods is another that falls into this category, and is a huge standout from a lyrical standpoint. The songs appealing to larger crowds, like "Roll Up" (2nd single), "Get Your Sh..", and "Fly Solo" makes Wiz sounds forced and out of place. Lyrically Wiz holds his own with his own rap style like on "The Race", and the aforementioned "Star of the Show". Production here helps out a lot as well, as all the beats on help matches Wiz' flow. As I mentioned before, I find Wiz to be at his best when he is making songs over darker, more funkdafied beats.

The overall product itself is very good. Sure everyone is not going to be happy with his debut after hearing some of his work prior to this release.

Wiz Khalifa has taken over the mixtape circuit for the last couple of years while building his own and label, Taylor Gang. The majority of fans have felt blessed with the amount of free music that has been created from VERY classic mixtapes from Wiz. "Kush & Orange Juice" has been the most acclaimed. If Wiz were to just feed off of that mixtape, polish it up production wise, he would have crated a very solid album. However, he decided to crate an album that has more mass appeal, with pop choruses and references. The aftermath of such an effort leaves more to be desired. It's an OK album, but could have been more polished and complete; something that could have satisfied mixtape fans as well as mainstream appeal. There is the problem with "Rolling Papers." It doesn't seem to have an identity. Songs that could have been "feel good" tracks are muddled down with average beats that are not upbeat. "Serious" songs, if you can call them that, are victims of the same average beats.

Track by track:

1.) When I'm Gone - 3/5 - Wiz opens up the album with a track that is his retrospective outlook of his success. He speaks on wealth and the need to splurge it because it won't accompany him when he is gone. It's a somewhat "feel-good" song, yet doesn't solidify as much pop appeal as he was trying to pull off. The overall feel of the song feels as if it doesn't really know what it wants to be...a serious song or a feel good song.

2.) On My Level - 3/5 - This will remind most hip-hop fans of early 90's rap. The beat is hard, almost southern sounding which would sound great with a couple of other features (Bun B, Chamillionaire, Crooked I for example). Instead, it has Too Short, which is a good addition, but having him on the song doesn't necessarily make it better.
