Newly engaged Taylor Gang leader Wiz Khalifa released a blissed-out new mixtape, "Taylor Allerdice," on Wednesday morning (Mar. 14). The 17-track release is more in line with his laid-back 2011 debut, "Rolling Papers," than his previous mixtape, the intense "Cabin Fever."
The vibe of "Taylor Allerdice" recalls Curren$y's more consistent tapes, with sunny, synth-led production from I.D. Labs, Cardo and Jake One, and weed-infused ruminations on the good life. "I'm just smoking, living life like in the movies/That I watch in my jacuzzi/Roll another doobie/See what's newest on Netflix, order another movie," he raps on "Never Been Part II," which features a Rick Ross verse and a hook delivered by his bride-to-be, Amber Rose.
The mixtape serves as a stopgap between the "Black and Yellow" rapper's debut disc and his upcoming sophomore release, "O.N.I.F.C.," due out later this year. Earlier this month, the 24-year-old rapper popped the question to Rose, posting a picture of the ring and the caption "She Said Yes" on Twitter.
