I’ve been a fan of Wiz Khalifa since probably 2008-ish and really enjoyed watching his rise from hometown hero to superstar from that 2008-2011(ish) timeframe.
In fact, I still actually listen to Kush & Orange Kush (the mixtape that I think really turned me on to his music heavily) from time-to-time to this day. It’s an absolute classic mixtape and I can’t believe it was FREE!
Anyway, last night (March 29, 2022) was the 11th anniversary of the release of Rolling Papers, Wiz’s first album after signing to Atlantic Records and the album that spawned the classic song ‘Black & Yellow’ and ‘On My Level’.
The minute 30-minute documentary, produced by Jeremy Hecht, celebrates Wiz’s rise to stardom during that Rolling Papers timeframe, starting before Wiz signed to Atlantic Records and ending after the debut of the album.
The documentary is incredibly well-done and features interviews with Slegren, Chevy Woods, Snoop Dogg and more.
