Wiz Khalifa Announces ‘Rolling Papers’

Big news from Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa! With the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl, expect the team’s playoff anthem “Black and Yellow” to gain plenty of playtime over the next two weeks.

A few days ago, Wiz revealed that his upcoming album will be titled Rolling Papersand will be released on March 29th via Atlantic Records. The first single, “Roll Up”, is set to debut on January 31. “It’s not just about the weed thing,” Khalifa says about the title. “It’s bigger than that. My career really took off when I started smoking papers … The second reason I called it Rolling Papers is when I left Warner Bros., I sort of got my ‘rolling papers.’ I got my contract, f#*king rolled up and smoked.” Finally, Khalifa said, “I write notes down, but I don’t write whole verses, so it was like saying goodbye to the paper. The paper’s rolling out too. So everything is real natural.”
