Wiz Khalifa Releases Classic ‘Taylor Allderdice’ Mixtape to Streaming

Published

on

Multi-platinum selling, Grammy and Golden Globe nominated recording artist Wiz Khalifa grew from grassroots fame to worldwide stardom, but he never forgot his original fans or his roots in Pittsburgh, PA. Today, Wiz celebrates the tenth anniversary of his mixtape Taylor Allderdice, releasing the acclaimed tape to streaming services for the first time. Home to fan favorite hits like “My Favorite Song” and “California,” Taylor Allderdice is currently available to stream on all platforms via Taylor Gang/Rostrum Records

Released shortly after his debut album and mainstream breakthrough Rolling PapersTaylor Allderdice served as a message to Wiz’s core fans that even as his profile rose, he would remain the same easy-laughing stoner who roamed the halls of Taylor Allderdice High School in Pittsburgh. The mixtape was a conscious return to the hazy sound he developed in Pittsburgh with his core collaborators, many of whom, including producers like I.D. LabsSledgrenCardo, and Big Jerm, and Taylor Gang artists like Chevy Woods and Lola Monroe, appear on the project. Taylor Allderdice showcased the chemistry between Wiz Khalifa and the newest Taylor Gang signee, legendary rapper/producer Juicy J, who goes back and forth with Wiz on four of the mixtape’s tracks. Each of the tracks on Taylor Allderdice end with snippets of dialogue between Wiz Khalifa and mixtape host Rob Markman, in which Wiz discusses his rise to stardom and answers burning questions with thoughtful defiance. 

Originally released in March 2012, Taylor Allderdice earned critical acclaim upon release, earning positive reviews in XXL and HipHopDX, and earning the #8 placement in Complex Magazine’s list of Best Albums of 2012. Boasting an all-star cast of guest artists and a list of early 2010s heavyweights behind the boards, including Lex LugerJake OneHarry Fraud, and SpaceGhostPurrpTaylor Allderdice is an indelible snapshot of a fascinating period in the history of Wiz Khalifa and hip-hop at large. 

The official release of Taylor Allderdice continues Wiz Khalifa’s efforts to clear his classic mixtapes for streaming services, with the assistance of Rostrum Records. In 2020, the rapper celebrated the 10th anniversary of his classic Kush & Orange Juice mixtape by releasing it to streaming services and printing limited edition vinyl. Later that year, Wiz released “The Thrill,” his early single with the memorable Empire Of The Sun sample, to DSPs, earning the approval of the band and listing them as primary artists on the song. Stay tuned for more from Wiz, as the star rapper prepares to deliver more of his blog-era classics to modern streaming formats.

Trapland Pat Keeps on Truckin’ in “Road 2 Riches” Video

Published

By

With star qualities as unmistakable as his wide-eyed, iced out smile, Trapland Pat is cruising in a lane of his own. Returning with a full tank of gas and an endless supply of tropical vibes, the South Florida sensation shares his new video single, “Road 2 Riches.” Anchored by an instrumental from frequent collaborator Pepper Jack Zoe that makes steel drums resonate like organ pipes in a cathedral, “Road 2 Riches” finds Pat on a Waze route to the bag, with no time for detours: “They like, ‘Trap, you should scam,’ I’m like, ‘Scam why?’/23 hours for them birdies, that’s a damn job.” 

The KillerJack-directed video for “Road 2 Riches” leans into its automotive imagery at full throttle, as Pat’s diamond-studded smirk and Peterbilt rig turn I-95 into Ice Road Truckers. Making a pit stop to stock up on essentials like styrofoam cups and bundles of Black and Milds before embarking on his journey, Pat’s locks in once he gets behind the wheel. He’s got a long way to go and a short time to get there, but he’s money-bound, so watch Trapland run it up.

“Road 2 Riches” follows recent cuts like “Z Land” and “Vibes” as Pat’s first new music since he shared the acclaimed Trapnificent mixtape this past summer. Pat’s first release for Bang Biz and Alamo Records, Trapnificent rolls out the red carpet for a tasteful selection of guests, including Fredo Bang, who signed Pat to his imprint Bang Biz and appears twice on the tape, Sacramento street hero Mozzy, NYC Winners Circle maestro Eli Fross, and Memphis’ own BIG30Trapnificent earned praise from Pitchfork, who called the project a “zippy distillation of his regional roots” and said that Pat’s music is “extremely regionally and culturally specific, like so much exciting and promising new rap music.”

Ready to bring his searing street raps to a larger audience, Trapland Pat has the goods to be Broward County’s next big star.
