Wiz Khalifa’s ‘Blacc Hollywood’: Album Review

Ever since Wiz Khalifa’s debut single “Say Yeah” (the one with the infectious Alice DeeJay “Better Off Alone” sample) arrived, it’s been pretty obvious that the Pittsburgh rapper has a penchant for crafting anthems. Of course 2011′s gigantic “Black And Yellow” really drove that point home, but since then it’s been a matter of pointing out the anthems in Wiz projects.

2012′s O.N.I.F.C. had “Work Hard, Play Hard,” and now his fifth studio album Blacc Hollywood (out today, ) has “We Dem Boyz.” Wiz has been consistent on that front. However, what’s offered beyond the token anthem is equally important — and while Blacc Hollywood has some hits, it also has some misses. More »

Cowabungaaa!
In light of the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles blockbuster flick, Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign and Juicy J have teamed up as a power rap trio for soundtrack banger, “Shell Shocked.” Produced by Madsonik and Kill The Noise, the menacing track serves up a hard-hitting trap beat for the hip-hop all-star’s killer verses.

“[Paramount] heard about how big of a fan I was of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and their whole legacy. I actually have Donatello tattooed on my leg, so when they asked me to do it, just being a fan and being a musician, it made sense,” Wiz revealed in a press release. “In my generation, I think everyone who listens to me loves the Turtles as much as I do, so it just made sense.”

So, without further ado, prepare to raise some shell!

Billboard Music Awards 2014: The Men Of Pop Stroll The Red Carpet

While the leading ladies of pop garnered most of the attention on the red carpet at tonight’s (May 18) Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, the gents held their own. The hottest look of the night was white with Austin Mahone, 2 Chainz and Wiz Khalifa all following the trend. It’s hard to pick a winner but the teen star’s jacket was pretty tight.

Of course, some dudes went for a more traditional approach. Ricky Martin and John Legend both looked suave in black and blue suits respectively. Country crooner Luke Bryan kept it similarly formal in a light colored dinner jacket, while Jack Antonoff (of Fun. and now Bleachers) served hipster chic by teaming his suit with a baseball hat. Well played. More »
