Wiz Khalifa‘s rise to fame over the past several years has many individuals disregarding his incredible catalog prior to reaching stardom. The slew of mixtapes and album’s that he dropped played a massive role in the dedicated fanbase he’s built. A project that seems to be overlooked these days is Wiz’ Burn After Rolling, a thorough project that contained some of Wiz’ best work. Today, we drop off “The Thrill” as our throwback for this week.
Wiz’ “The Thrill” was a major anthem upon it’s release. With a sample from Empire of the Sun’s “Walking On A Dream,” Wiz brings memories of college parties and reckless nights. It brings back a time when Wiz was just coming up for his lifestyle raps and touring campus’ throughout the country. “The Thrill” definitely had many college students bumping this throughout their experimental phases. As Wiz grew into the artist he is now, his older material helped him blossom into who he is today.
All this money, darling, what else is left to do
But smoke and enjoy my presidential view
Got a swimming pool in my living room
On stage, interviews,
Tons of sour, let’s consume
