Album Review: Wiz Khalifa–Taylor Allderdice


Rostrum Records/Taylor Gang

Release Date: March13, 2012

The bounce back from Rolling Papers is here, giving the fans a bit of the original Wiz again. Taylor Allderdice is a must have judging from the downloading problems from sites being flooded from fans wanting the tape…the craze fits all too well. On this tape, the audience gets an inside look to Wiz’ thoughts on various aspects of his career covering topics like, Rolling Papers, criticisms to his longevity in the game, Taylor Gang, etc. On this tape, there is an interview broken into parts after each song. This is where you get an inside scoop to Khalifa life.  A premier work here with features from the likes of Rick Ross, Smoke DZA, Amber Rose, and more.

To focus more on the engineering and production tip, Allderdice is heavily influenced by TGOD’s (Taylor Gang Or Die)  Big Jerm, Cardo, Sledgrin, and a couple others. Wiz always seems to find futuristic and original sound for his production. Whether partying, chilling out at home, a kick-back session at the crib, this project can find a comfortable home in your speakers. In any case, a lot of the beats you will here will make the audience reminisce on the sound captured on production from the critically acclaimed Kush & Orange Juice.

Additionally, there is a showcase of versatility; a common adjective used when it comes to Wiz. As he raps, as well as a synthesized singing voice that is not too excruciating to the audience, even preferred sometimes. But like everything else, the more time one spends on their craft, the more experienced they become…evolution. Wiz’ flows and delivery are different from the works of Flight School & Kush & Oj; more similar to the quick and fast paced rap on Young, Wild, & Free off the soundtrack for the up and coming movie  Mac & Devin Go To High School. With that being said, I’m pleased to announce that we have the highly aniticipated Taylor Allderdice. Download here on the site!!!
