Wiz Khalifa's "28 Grams" review
Wiz comes in and drops another swagged up mixtape for all the Talyors. This may be a new sound, but its the same swag that drove him to the top and why his success will never stop. I make sure to always tune in to what he Wizzy has to say because him and Currensy are the faces of a generation of stoners with joints like Track 21- "My Nigs" prod. by ID Labs & PoShad Beats.
I gotta be honest, at first I did not like this mixtape. This has a completely different sound from "Kush & Orange Juice" and "Taylor Allderdice". This has more of an upbeat vibe and is more tuned for the clubbers and trappers. Although I do enjoy the down south swag, its different from what your used to listening to Wiz's smooth trance educing smokers music. I enjoyed "Rolling Papers" more when I listened to it for the first time. Luckily, I didn't delete it off my memory and the more I listen to it, the more it grew on me. Nothing wrong with trying new styles and taking care of your business like on Track 20- "Handel My Biz" ft. JR Donato prod. by Metro Boomin.
Alright now, I'm about to blow my readers mind and do a switch-a-roo swag. MARIJUANA SHOULD SAY ILLEGAL!!! Now before you say "How dis pothead nigga gonna make a stupid ass statement like that?", let me explain. Thanks to Wiz efforts, he has opened a Pandora's box and people are not as stuck up about weed like they was before. More and more people see marijuana as a medicinal herb now, as oppose to chemically crafted substance. The benefits of using marijuana greatly outweigh the negatives of not using.
Legalizing marijuana is much more than President Obama taking it off the Schedule 1 list. Say he did it today, there are plenty of people in prison for weed and all those people will have to be not only exonerated, but they have to be compensated. Also there is alot of people (including me) who have criminal record for possession and distributing. What about drug test? Employers are still gonna test people for it no matter if its legal or not. Its not like cocaine or liqueur that leaves your system in a few days, weed is there and will be there for a good lil whiles. For marijuana to be truly legal it's gonna take influential people like Wiz to keep swaggin it and change people's mindset as past generations start to fade out.
Now to the reasons I believe it should STAY illegal. Marijuana remaining illegal is factual evidence as to how illegitimate our government is. Later down the line, future generations will look at who we currently have in office and shame them. They would rather start wars and make sure the wealthy get richer, than make common sense laws. We have two states that say fuck the feds and went on and did it anyway. I also get to thinking about the people that control the finical district. All them rich corporate niggs make no less than $100k a year and all of them be coked up everyday. They don't bitch and moan about cocaine being legal. They could care less if coke is legal or not because they got money and as long as that money rolling in, shit is a swag swag.
I realize this review is less of a focus on the music and more on my views of marijuana, but this is my blog and I write what I want. I respect Wiz for not being scared to change his image and style. I'm currently in the process of doing the same and I want to start shooting porn. Now that I have a job I'm just saving up and learning what I have to do to get it swaggin.
