Yesterday (April 14), marked the seventh anniversary of Wiz Khalifa’s critically acclaimed mixtape, Kush & Orange Juice. The project is one of the key contributors to taking the Pittsburgh rapper’s career to the next level almost a decade ago, and featured then young talent like Curren$y, Big K.R.I.T., Killa Kyleon, Nesby Phips and others. Wiz celebrated the monumental project by releasing three new tracks with frequent collaborating producer, Cardo.
“Thank you guys for supporting me through all the years,” Wiz wrote on Instagram. “More great music to come and bomb weed to crumble but for today I’m dropping three songs from me and Cardo streaming for 24hrs only. Stay tuned for the link. #tgod.”
The trio of tracks are “Get It On Your Own,” “Lost Files,” and “Coachella,” and all three offer different vibes.
The Texas-based producer has been down with Wiz since the early days, and produced two records off Kush & Orange Juice (“Mezmorized” and “In the Cut”). But, he has been noticeably absent from the Taylor Gang rapper’s last two projects. Hopefully we can get more vibes from the duo on Wiz’s upcoming album, Rolling Papers 2, which should be coming out at some point this year.
Cardo recently landed a placement on Kendrick Lamar’s new album Damn., co-producing the LP’s final track, “GOD.”
Listen to the three new Wiz tracks below.
