no, seriously, score's way too high. lyrics are a huge part of rap and if the album doesn't have decent lyrics, i cannot in the right mind say that it is a good album, not even 75% worthy, no matter how "slick" it is. the lyrics are pathetic. wiz sold out and gave the people what they wanted: a bunch of shallow songs about weed, bitches, and champagne over smooth, radio-friendly instrumentals.

by the way, you have no idea how much his opener pissed me off. saying “And they say all I rap about is bitches and champagne" then proceeding to make songs that ALL talk strictly about just that, made me lose all respect for him and cannot listen to this record at all. absolutely pathetic compared to the freestyles and mixtapes he put out back in the day.

This album was a huge disappointment. I listened to it like 3x then completely forgot about it. Do love me some Black and Yellow though.

I actually liked a lot of his mixtapes more than Rolling Papers. It felt like he was really turning to the pop side on this album. Really disappointing to hear some of these songs compared to ones off his mixtapes like "The Thrill" and "Mezmorized."

Yo. This is a release on a label.

Is anybody really considering this? How candy-coated it is? How mainstream it sounds?
I'll bump Wiz all day, Rolling Papers, although weaker than Kush & OJ or some real early Wiz, is still Wiz being Wiz.
It's 4/20.
Roll one.

He gave the lyrics a 4.25.

How is that relevant under a Wiz Khalifa review? It's like going to a Metallica review and saying "Listen to Brand New"
