As promised, Wiz Khalifa has gifted fans with a new mixtape that is set to be the soundtrack for 4/20. He revealed the tracklist for the 14-song Fly Times Vol. 1: The Good Fly Young project just last night and first dropped news of the record on April 14, the ninth anniversary of Kush and Orange Juice. Fly Times has a laid back vibe and features a number of collaborations from the Taylor Gang and others including Ty Dolla $ign, THEMXXNLIGHT, Problem, Chevy Woods, Young Deji, Sosamann, and his 2009collaborator Curren$y.
This anticipated album shouldn’t be dismissed as a just a record for the smokers and tokers as Khalifa delivers a solid project that has back-to-back hits, blending sounds from R&B and both coasts. The rapper’s love for Mary Jane isn’t a secret, and he’s previously shared that smoking marijuana aids in his creative process. “Smoking just helps to free my mind, slow my thoughts down and think about everything not only in a more poetic way but in a more creative way in general,” he said. “Just taking my realest ideas and being able to put [them] on paper. It just makes it more vivid. And like I said, I’m able to just relax and be free. I like to smoke before, during and after I’m making music.
