Wiz Khalifa's "Rolling Papers" Artwork Revealed

UPDATE: The Taylor Gang's fearless leader reveals the cover art to his marijuana-inspired major label debut

Wiz Khalifa’s “Black & Yellow” is currently ranked number eight on Billboard magazine’s “Hot 100” chart. The gold-selling single is enjoying a 13-week run on the chart, and it has spawned a remix and tributes from the likes of Fabolous, Snoop Dogg and even a “Jersey Shore” cast member. And Wiz says this is only the beginning.

“Everything that we drop after ‘Black & Yellow’ is going to do as well or better,” Wiz recently told Billboard.com. “‘Black & Yellow’ was just supposed to be a set-up record. We haven’t even gotten into the good stuff.”

In addition to “Black & Yellow” producers, Stargate, Wiz has already completed cuts produced by Pharrell and Jim Jonsin. All will appear on his upcoming album, an album of which he currently refuses to reveal the release date or title. Wiz did add that he plans to “go back in and tighten up some other things, and add maybe a track or two. But for the most part it’s done.”

For now, Wiz will continue touring. According to his booking agent, Peter Schwartz, Wiz performed around 130 shows in 2010, 63 of which were for his Waken Baken tour. Factor in the 90,000 tickets sold for that tour alone, the popularity of 2010’s “Kush x OJ” mixtape and his upcoming “High School” DVD with Snoop Dogg, and this could be an extremely profitable year for the Pittsburgh native. Are any special celebrations in order?

“I’ll probably just keep working,” he quipped. “I don’t think I’m going to do anything spectacular to celebrate—I already smoke enough.”

UPDATE: Last night on UStream Wiz Khalifa finally titled his highly-anticipated major label debut. The Pittsburgh native stayed true to his word late last year when he said his album would drop late March. Rolling Papers will touch down on March 29, led by singles "Black and Yellow " and the upcoming "Roll Up."

The album, which will be Wiz' third studio album, features fellow green connoisseurs Snoop Dogg and Curren$y as well as Rick Ross and Too $hort.

UPDATE #2: Pittsburgh's Wiz Khalifa has made his name synonomous with that sticky green, so there is no surprise that his album dubbed Rolling Papers features his likeness in a cloud of smoke. The album drops March 29.

In other Wiz news, a collaboration with Snoop Dogg called "Young, Wild & Free" just hit the Internet. The song is from the upcoming movie High School.

    Wiz fell off. Any real fan will agree that he can drop better singles than Black and Yellow and I roll Up

    • Anonymous

      speakingtruth..... are you serious? are you a REAL wiz khalifa fan? come on nigga. black and yellow was dope and any other rapper will admit it. they wish they thought of it. why you think theres so many remixs to it? and roll up is a good song. not one of his best but its still good. snoop and wiz is a great collab on a track tho. dope shit right there.

      black n yellow wus cool but i feel yu

  • thegreat

    Lets be honest: How Fly, Kush and OJ, Flight School, Burn After Rolling, etc will go way harder than this upcoming album. I was a fan, but dude fell off. Look at the singles he's putting out, major labels fuck everything up. Kush and OJ should have been an album for real.

    All you haters need to GTFO with all your BS. Wiz is still the man, I saw wiz progress since prince of the city his style has changed but he is still on top of his shit making good ass music to enjoy. You lames sayin' his album won't sell just fucking watch it's gonna blow up. And to the fag sayin one hit wonder just stfu you know nothing. Any one that disrespects wiz is disrespecting me too since I listen to his music so fuck all the haters. Taylor Gang or be a hater for life.

  • Jason Smith

    If you didn't bump that Kush and OJ for a good portion of 2010, kindly STFU...one hit wonder? this kid had a major following BEFORE "Black & Yellow" MFs need another hobby besides hatin'!!!

  • Vlp Lupe E

    Wiz is fuckin' overrated. Black & Yellow only got were it is because of the beat and the "black and yellow black and yellow" hook which is so repetative. Supposeably his shyt supossed to be better but he already took out the singles after his ONE HIT WONDER shyt and he aint makin anythin better bahaha! ONE HIT WONDER KHALIFA. GO YELAWOLF!!!

    Wiz Khalifa, Lupe Fiasco and J. Cole will all flop. No one likes those faggots anyway. Listen to 300 billion time platnium rappers Gucci Mane, Justin Bieber, Canibus and Vinnie Paz. Lifehouse rocks too. It's Gucci Time!

    • sharksbreath

      You should be ashamed of yourself. Promoting rappers that tell black people to sell drugs to their own, destroy they community and kill each other. Do you and your nut ass rapper work for the KKK.

  • Anonymous

    with all the hype this cat was getting, turn out he is very below average! any artist talking about whips, diamonds, chains, and all that bullshit is a d-list artist to me! when he come with something other than what he doing now then maybe he might get more props!

  • SLAM

    J. Coles album will be the best of the year without a doubt.

    • chaboi614

      AGREE!!! , How can people hate on J.cole, he got crazy talent he gon b #1 quick wen his true Album drop.

    • Tidomann

      Real, uncompromised str8 thuggin' raps from Freddie Gibbs...yeah Cole would probably be rookie No. 1 cause he ridin' with Jay-Z & Kanye and album will probably be filled with Pop sounds & guests like Drake, Ross, Will or Willow Smith, Minaj & Young Money. Platinum status for mediocre shit in the game.

    • sharksbreath

      Disagree. I like Cole but he's no Lupe. Cole is a talented rapper trying to find his way. Matter of fact. No one in this game is Lupe. He stands alone. When Cole makes an American Terrorist holla at me.

  • jack

    rolling papers? wow how fucking original. what an original rapper. fuck wiz.

  • Snare

    This piece of trash is gonna suck. I don't know why all of these dick riders were eating up kush and oj. That mixtape sucked. I listened to the first song and I was like, aight. Then the next 20 songs were the EXACT same concept, and I was like how do people like this guy. J Cole is on a totally different level, the kid spits fire. He tells stories, and goes hard about whatever's on his mind. That thing is gonna be fire, and so is Lupe's album. Lupe is super lyrical. Unless you're a worthless pothead, I dont see why you like this Wiz Khalifa garbage.

  • Frankie

    Rolling Papers, nice. I might buy that, and definitely Lasers, the superior listen

  • smart guy

    people are dumb you cant compare j cole,wiz, or lupe there all different rappers. there all doing there thing and doing well at it. j cole is a better talent overall but wiz is just a marketing genius right now. its like trying to compare fergie with nikki minaj both successful at what there doing but completely different

    • sharksbreath

      Wiz is Currency with no talent. He sounds like a dude who's voice is still changing. Better yet he sounds like dude when you got him gripped up and you asking him where your money at. Like a straight Bitch.

    • RealHipHopKy

      Preach! I try to tell people, stop comparing Artist that are nothin Alike, and it you like the Beat of the Music, you can listen to alot of different Artists, not just Super Lyrical Ones. The Hip Hop Heads are Ridiculous. I bet they critique R&B Lyrics too for Substance! lmao!

    • Ddot DOuble

      True. and whats the deal with all these so-called "weed rappers" makin music thats not even fun to listen to when you're high?! Most a the beats are hot garbage. Fuck Wiz, I'm stickin' with Devin.

  • yeah

    i'll check it out, but it's going to be nowhere near Lasers. Unless this dude starts rapping about something else but weed then people are going to get tired of his shit. I like him, but man rap about something else. We get it, you love to smoke, but that shit is getting old.

  • Atl2Trill

    Wiz is the 2011 Snoop Dogg. I wanna see that High School DVD when it drops.

  • LASERS

    March is already dedicated to LASERS. Sorry Wiz but your album wont sell.

    • Anonymous

      what kind of dickriding shit is that. You dedicate an entire month to one artist? I fucking hate hip hop stans like you. hip hop would be so much better without people like you.

    • sorry lupe

      eerrrr wroonng , lasers will be good but imosrry if j cole drops his album in march like he stated, lupe's about to be in trouble

    • Atl2Trill

      I'm a Lupe fan myself. But Wiz is gonna sell though. All the Females and Stoners gonna buy his shit.

  • G

    Wiz Khalifa = GARBAGE I'd rather not listen to his simple minded lyrics. Every song will just be about rolling up blunts. J Cole is the shit. So is Big Sean. And Nipsey Hussle.
