Wiz Khalifa – Blacc Hollywood

This is not the most complicated album, but it does hold some good songs and may be worth a listen or two. The choruses are, on average, very simplistic often consisting of one line or phrase repeated over and over. However a big boost to the overall album is Wiz’s singing ability which features more and very well on this album. It helps bring a sense of diversity to the album and opens up a whole range of possibility for each song.

The production on the album is of good quality as well as diversity. From light pop music, to club beats, to deep emotional backtracks, Wiz flows over all comfortably and even tries some new tempos and styles while rapping about money, drugs and women. Very comfortable subjects for him but he is trying to approach them from some different areas at least.

The features on the album do well, but it would have been nice to hear a bit more from them, some cases in time and others in substance. Varied in their performance, the features do at least help Wiz to showcase why he is such a figure in Hip Hop. His style and skill shine out among others while not making them look bad.

Overall, this may not be the top album of the year but it is a good album, while it may not be for everyone. A good variety of tracks means that some tracks will appeal to some people, but also means that they may not buy the whole album as they may actively not like a majority of the tracks.
