Mixtape Review: Wiz Khalifa's Kush & Orange Juice



The Deal: Kush-loving rapper drops pre-4/20 mixtape after anticipation led to #kushandorangejuice being a trending topic of Twitter for the past 3 days.

The Good: I hate to say this tape is better than his last album but it definitely is! Who doesn't love flows about fly women and the champagne lifestyle coming from an indie rapper from Pittsburgh? The production is dope (as usual).  Killa Kyleon does his best Rick Ross impersonation on "Spotlight" but it's hot nonetheless.

The Bad: If you aren't a smoker or into laid back raps on chill tracks then this probably isn't you steez but no major qualms otherwise. I could live without Wiz jumping on super pop tracks when he doesn't have a crossover flow yet. It just doesn't work. (see "We're Done")

The Verdict: Following Wiz's development, the level of his production versus the level of his rhymes have always been off but this mixtape you see them leveling out. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come from a rapper who I always felt was borderline dope.
