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.

Teenear Samples Brandy’s “The Boy Is Mine” on her Single Release “Ain’t Mine” 

Published

By

Teenear Renee began singing with the praise team of her church in her hometown of Miami, Florida. She later started performing solo at talent shows. 

A version of Rihanna’s “Stay” went over so well that she started a YouTube channel — after her parents’ strong encouragement — to gain wider exposure. Uploads of “Stay” and other covers caught the attention of the Miami-based Slip’N’Slide label, resulting in a recording contract. In 2015, the year she graduated high school, Teenear debuted with “Friday Night,” featuring a guest verse from Sage the Gemini. 

Follow-up “Streetlights‘ ‘ arrived in 2016, followed shortly thereafter by a dancehall-flavored remix with an appearance from labelmate Trina. A handful of additional tracks, including the sparkling Fetty Wap collaboration “Love Me or Leave Me” and the beaming ballad “Need Your Love,” were scattered across 2017 and 2018. 

At the height of the pandemic and social justice with the likes of the George Floyd assualt/murder, Teenear returned to Music with her song “Free” lending her voice and platform to the conversation and activism toward freeing those most affected by police brutality, and racisim. 

The singer, after two years, returns to music full time with her leading single “Ain’t Mine” debuting May 13th 2022. The single samples the living legend Brandys 1998 hit song “the boy is mine” 

Teenear’s label Slip N Slide is excited about this release.

Known for his work with Drake, Eminem, DJ Khaled, Young M.A., and more, multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated producer Mike Zombie has been relatively quiet since the formation of his Don Juligans group and the launch of his WAV TECH app in 2021. 

Now, the self-proclaimed “Humble Genius” gifts fans with a surprise release in the form of celebratory Marcus Mayhem-produced song, “Triumphant.” The motivational, horn-driven track finds the Jersey-bred rapper/producer radiating confidence as he spits some boastful rhymes addressing competition and his own resilience.

“I used to make beats in college with my brother..he actually sent me this beat from this producer named Marcus Mayhem and it immediately screamed anthem when I heard it. 

The first thing that came out my mouth was ‘this sound like somethin ****** this sound triumphant.’ I love making motivational music and it seems people love hearing it .. it’s starting to be my lane. Album on the way,” Zombie shares with us. 

“Triumphant” is expected to appear on Mike Zombie’s forthcoming album, Nice Guys Finish First, dropping on all platforms June 2022. Stream the single below on your preferred streaming platform.
