Wiz Khalifa refuses to rest on his laurels. Just six months after the release of his gold major-label debut, Rolling Papers, the “Black and Yellow” MC revealed to MTV News that he has already started work on his follow-up.
“Yeah, I’ve started working on a next album just to get a feel for where I’m going with it,” Wiz told us on the BMI Urban Awards red carpet last month.
” ‘No Sleep’ is gonna do what it’s gonna do,” Khalifa said of the fourth and latest single from Rolling Papers. “Hopefully, it takes off; it’s been getting a lot of love so far.”
As of now, there is still no date or title for the next Wiz album, but fans of the Pittsburgh rap star will get to hear some new music from him later this month when his pal Chevy Woods drops his mixtape The Cookout. “You know me, I’m always working, doing new stuff. I got artists that I’m working on and stuff like that; Chevy is doin’ his thing.”
The next artist to emerge from the smoked-out spitter’s Taylor Gang crew is Chevy Woods. During the past few months, Wiz and Woods have been actively promoting Cookout, the soon-to-be-released Chevy tape that will prominently feature Khalifa as well.
“[Wiz's] gonna be on at least half or more [of the songs],” Chevy told Mixtape Daily in July. “It’s my tape, featuring him.”
“It’s gonna be coming out in early September, so anybody who wants to hear some new raps from me, they can go get that,” Wiz confirmed.”And, of course, Chevy is gonna kill it and do his thing. It’s gonna be real fun.”
