Deep into his career, Wiz Khalifa appears to have found harmony. It’s a quality reflected in the carefree and easygoing nature of his recent music, including his latest mixtape Big Pimpin. Released on his thirty-third birthday and named after Jay-Z’s classic collaboration with UGK, the tape served as a welcome supply for loyal fans eager to catch a vibe.
And while it’s not exactly breaking new ground, Wiz’s stoner charm continues to translate effectively, especially when he’s backed by the ever-reliable talents of his longtime smoking partner Curren$y. Though it hasn’t been that long since they reconnected to drop off 2009, that time can feel much longer in a kush-soaked haze.
Especially when we’re looking at something with the potency of Khalifa Kush. Perhaps that’s why Spitta and Wiz’s reunions always feel like two friends reconnecting after a long absence, their well-established chemistry quickly kicking back into gear.
On “Prove It,” the backdrop is a far more melodic and vibe-driven one, an apparent soundtrack for the nightcap joint. Fans of the pair’s handiwork should definitely check this one out — and remember, there’s much more where that came from.
