Taylor Gang/Atlantic recording artist Wiz Khalifa has officially released his highly anticipated album, ROLLING PAPERS 2. The long awaited sequel to 2011’s 2x RIAA platinum certified classic, ROLLING PAPERS, arrives today at all music retailers and streaming services.

Gucci Mane which is also accompanied by a Cole Bennet directed visual. “Hopeless Romantic” was immediately greeted with online acclaim. “A smooth guitar riff, atmospheric synths, and mellow drums make for the perfect sound bed for Wiz Khalifa and Swae Lee's distinct voices,” raved Billboard.
Wiz is celebrating ROLLING PAPERS 2 by lighting up the summer on an epic North American tour. The “Dazed & Blazed” Tour – co-headlined by Rae Sremmurd – begins July 21st at Detroit, MI’s DTE Energy Music Theatre and continues through a September 1st finale at Concord, CA’s Concord Pavilion (see attached itinerary).

ROLLING PAPERS 2 arrives hot on the heels of the acclaimed mixtape, LAUGH NOW, FLY LATER. The project included the exhilarating single “Letterman,” which was hailed upon its arrival with Vibe proclaiming it to be “his most slept on single of the year.”
Last summer saw Wiz unleash “Something New (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign)” marking his first major new release in nearly two years. The track’s companion video, directed by Bryan Barber, has proven another favorite, now with over 64 million views.
