Wiz Khalifa Takes Us Behind the Scenes of Sold Out Show in ‘Brainstorm’ Video
With millions of albums sold, a newly released mixtape, and just becoming engaged to blond beauty Amber Rose, rapper Wiz Khalifa is having the time of his life right now. This can easily be confirmed in his new video ‘Brainstorm,’ from his freshly released mixtape ‘Taylor Allerdice.’
For those interested in witnessing what a day in the life of the 24-year old emcee is like, this three minute video provides a quick glimpse of what Wiz does before, during, and after one of his many sold out shows.
The video and song opens up with the line “I’m cool with the new me / Some n–told me they wish I’d go back to the old me / But don’t even know me.” A not-so-subtle response to some of his fans and critics who have claimed Wiz has changed his initial style to become more pop friendly.
But the small amount of criticism doesn’t seem to hinder Mr. Khalifa from enjoying his current success, as the new video shows him immersed in pricey champagne, a bevy of friends, and his ever present sticky green sidekick, which like partner-in-rhyme Snoop Dogg, has become the Pittsburgh rappers official motif.
‘Taylor Allerdice’ is Wiz Khalifa’s new mixtape, which was released last week and serves as a musical appetizer for fans until his next studio album, ‘O.N.I.F.C.,’ drops in the latter part of 2012. ‘Brainstorm’ being the first video and single, displays a track similar to classic ’90s west coast hip-hop, complete with lush guitar licks and a laid back vibe.
If fans were crazed with anticipation for the release of Wiz’s new mixtape, his video for ‘Brainstorm’ probably just drove them a little more crazier.
