Hopes & Dreams
For Rolling Papers, Wiz Khalifa repeats his successful formula from 2009's Deal Or No Deal. From Pittsburgh anthem and mega-hit "Black & Yellow" to "Cameras," he dreamily sings and raps about weed, women and cash, while beats from Stargate, Jim Jonsin and others fuel his theme of petit bourgeois luxury. Wiz is best at conjuring a world where, on "The Race," he's "Stuntin' like Jet Li/ Boathouses and Jet Skis." Complaining about his content-free rhymes may be beside the point, but all the flossing may leave you desperate for a dose of reality -- or better yet, some rolling papers.
