After debuting his first single of the new year with “Real Rappers Rap” and the news that he’ll be headlining Rolling Loud Portugal, prolific stoner-rap icon Wiz Khalifa delivers a new 7-track EP in It’s Only Weed Bro.

You won’t find the tape on traditional streaming services anytime soon based on Wiz harkening back to the early to mid-2000s mixtape era by rapping over some of hip-hop’s most revered instrumentals. The quick-hit project is classic mixtape Wiz too, with the Pittsburgh rapper freestyling over Mobb Deep’s iconic “Survival Of The Fittest” for track two’s “Vanity Fair.” Other standout samples include JAY-Z and Memphis Bleek’s “Dear Summer” with Weldon Irvine’s “Morning Sunrise” reverberating throughout as Khalifa’s pace seemingly speeds up to the point of rapid fire bars by song’s end. A nostalgic Wiz contemplates his early days in high school when he first started rapping. It’s also his first compilation of songs since last year’s Fly Times Vol. 1: The Good Fly Young, which, of course, released on April 20.

Despite the EP’s 17-minute runtime, there’s still a lot to unpack from the prolific Rolling Papers rapper’s latest. Curated instrumental selections gives you a look into some of Wiz’s favorite beats from when he first started rapping while It’s Only Weed Bro serves as a nice interlude until we get his next major studio album. Stream the full offering below and in more music updates, listen to Eminem explain his “Lose Yourself” performance from the 2020 Oscars.
