Well hear it is…Smoking Made Music for the Modern Day Hippie. Wiz Khailifa – Burn After Rolling [B.A.R] dropped on Monday November 2 and I have to say it is a as good as No Ceilings if not all around better. Wiz Khalifa, DJ iLL WiLL, & DJ Rockstar bring us one of the best mixtapes of 2009 and the best weed mixtape of 2009 until The Hail Mary Jane Mixtape drops sometime soon [artists the final day to submit tracks is Nov. 6th.].
Back to Khalifa, as I am listening to it as I am writing this post, all I have to say is this tape is amazing. The way Wiz takes you lyrically into weed, drugs, & a party life is so well done. He shows you another side to a Hip-hop lifestyle. Getting high and having a good time while doing it. There’s no gun play [maybe some drug play LOL] or robbing with Wiz, but you get what I’m saying. Just straight up Smoking Made Music and as a smoker that is why I love this music, music for weed smokers. Now only about 4 or 5 tracks leaked from this tape, so almost all tracks are brand new. I strongly recommend One Way, Weekend, The Thrill as three of the best tracks on the tape, but Mafia Music & If I Were Lame have some amazing and interesting lyrics. All in all this tape is 5/5 and is a perfect match of weed and great hip-hop. Hip-hop should follow in Khalifa’s style of music and lyrics.
On another note look out for Hail Mary Jane’s Top 50 or 100 Hip-Hop Songs of 2009 and Top 10 Mixtapes of 2009 and maybe Top 10 Albums of 2009, will see. If anyone has any suggestions for any of these lists, let me know in a comment or at twitter.com/MaryJaneEmpire. Be ready for some surprises with all lists.
