We put Wiz Khalifa on the front cover of our newest magazine because because his playful and relentless work ethic is helping folks reconsider how someone acts when they are famous, and resulting in some incredible music. Wiz’s album Rolling Papers is out March 29th, but last night on twitter he dropped this new nine song mixtape (featuring FADER favorites Juicy J and Trae tha Truth) anyway. Wiz Khalifa: just a refined everyman, more stoned than you, recording more often. When you were at the Grammys or watching the Grammys, he was at home singing and rapping, thinking about all the money he is about to manage. So far we like “Middle of You” and “Homicide,” two of the cuts with Chevy Woods, the best.
