Wiz Khalifa Holds Listening Session for Taylor Allderdice Mixtape in NYC [Video]

Almost a full year since his last solo project, Wiz Khalifa is ready to give his fans another smoke-filled body of work. The Taylor Gang general will be dropping his mixtape Taylor Allderdice on March 13, hosting a listening session for the release last night (February 26) in New York City.

Held at Jungle City Studios in Manhattan, the session was MCed by Wiz, who excitedly invited guests to join him in drinking and smoking as he prepared to press play. “You can ride to this, smoke to this, get trippy to this,” he promised. “But you can clean to this, cook to this, iron to this.”

Though he didn’t stop to introduce or name many of the songs, he did highlight “Never Been Pt. 2,” which builds off of the original version from 2010′s Kush & OJ mixtape, and includes a chorus from Wiz’s girlfriend, Amber Rose. Both “Mary x3″ and “California,” which had recently been released, also made the cut. Featured guests on the tape include Taylor Gang members Chevy Woods and Juicy J, both of whom were in attendance, as well as Smoke DZA. Mac Miller, who was not featured on the tape, was also on hand to support his fellow Rostrum Records rapper. On the production side, both Cardo and Sledgren, each of whom were also in the building, and handled a bulk of production on Kush & OJ, again lent their touch to much of the project. Beats from Lex Luger, Harry Fraud, and Space Ghost Purp also blared through the speakers.

The tape is Wiz’s first solo release since his Atlantic Records debut, Rolling Papers, which came out on March 29 of last year. He teamed with Snoop Dogg for the soundtrack to the upcoming Mac and Devin Go To High School in December.

Taylor Allderdice, which is named after Wiz’s high school, will be available March 13. —Adam Fleischer (AdamXXL)

      You got a lot of time on your hands. Smokin alone I see! Lol. Wiz might be the reason this country eventually legalizes that plant. He’s making music that can reach a wide array of people and tastes. You don’t need to like it. And if you don’t respect it, just peep his earnings. He’s doing something right!
