Wiz Khalifa Explains Lack of ‘Rolling Papers’ Collaboration Tracks

Wiz Khalifa Wiz Khalifa Explains Lack of Rolling Papers Collaboration TracksThere is no doubting the fact that frequently ‘high’ Wiz Khalifa is quickly climbing the ‘high’ echelons of rap-stardom.  The lanky MC’s debut album ‘Rolling Papers’ was released last week and it immediately shot to number 2 on the Billboard 200 chart, thanks to the 197,000 copies sold in its debut week.

Such a great response is even more meaningful for Wiz Khalifa, because more than half of Rolling Papers songs have been composed and directed by I.D. Labs, the production group with whom he has long been associated with. However, the main ‘Black and Yellow’ tune was developed by Stargate group.

Snoop Dogg Loving New Wave of West Coast Musicians

snopp dogg Snoop Dogg Loving New Wave of West Coast MusiciansSince breaking out on the mainstream music scene with longtime pal Dr. Dre on ‘Deep Cover,’ Snoop Dogg has went from being a hot up and comer to a premier hip hop artist and is now enjoying the elite status of a rap icon. The West Coast rapper has always recognized the efforts of those who helped him during his early time in the music industry and in return he has never shied away from lending a helping hand to the newcomers of the new generation, especially who are from the West Coast.

Speaking in a recent interview with MTV, Snoop said that he is very familiar and fond of the new generation of MCs coming out of the West and enjoys the title ‘Uncle Snoop,’ to which he is generally referred by them. He revealed that every now and then young musicians visit him, seeking advice and he connects with them very well. Snoop said that he is always on the lookout for new material that comes from the street and always feels proud of his West Coast heritage.

Unlike Snoop, not all the rap veterans are so fond of the new talent coming up. But that does not deter the upstarts from trying their luck in the tumultuous rap game. They want to follow in the footsteps of legends like Snoop and Dre, but are wary of copying their style too much.
