Well this cut pretty much confirms summer is here – well maybe we will get two weeks of it in the UK? 😛
American rapper Wiz Khalifa (real name Cameron Jibril Thomaz) pretty much landed slap bang in the center of the worldwide mainstream with “Black and Yellow” and has now followed that up with “Roll Up”. This track is pretty much my heroin at the moment and a video has been released with video-girl/model/singer Cassie.
I’ve heard Thomaz cites Bone Thugz-n-Harmony as an influence, which I guess would explain why I am drawn to this track in particular. Raised mostly in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania the 23-year-old has been active since 2005 and after releasing multiple mixtapes (including the much talked about “Kush & Orange Juice” in 2010) and a series of albums independently over the last few years, Wiz has now hitting it big with 2011’s “Rolling Papers” his first studio release.
I am sure we will be hearing much more from this guy…
