ima do this cuz wiz gets mad hate on here, i'm a fan and there seems to be few wiz fans on here so im doin it for them, maybe i can open people's eyes, maybe you still won't like his music but maybe you will respect him a little more and i will put some people on to game. I'm gonna touch on a few key projects u should check out

alot of you niggas only know of him post "kush & orange juice" & "black & yellow"

he's 10 years in, with 11 mix and 3 albums

now lets take it back 10 years when the young boy wiz put out his first album 'show & prove' at the age of 16
he had a "edgier" sound, his flow and delivery was aggressive, he was hungry.. this is before he was screamin "taylor gang or die"

classic shit check this where it all started











His first mixtape: Prince of the city: Welcome to pistolvania he was spittin on here









Grow Season the fact that he rapped over the 3-6 mafia dope boy fresh beaT. if u listen to this tape wiz raps over a few beats that you wouldn't expect him to, and i think this is the first time where a song wiz entirely dedicated to his favorite drug of choice. (listen to the tape and find it yourself)










Prince of the City 2, i think this is where wiz found his lane and put it all together. He still had that "street edge" bout him on this but you can tell he was expanding his sound, he was harmonizing and singing on this tape

classic shyt man






if you listen to all these projects in full, from his first shyt to now, you will see the classic shyt he has done

    and even at such a young age, i think wiz is at that point in his career where his fans second guess him... even though he still drops good music, people will always compare it to his early shit and say "yeah this is good but it doesn't compare to his early shit"

    Seems like yesterday ppl jumped on his dick when Kush & OJ dropped. I keep telling y'all popularity & hype plays a very very very very very very important part in what ppl like & listen to or vice versa, more-so nowadays than before.

    I never felt him to be honest. I'm open minded so i tried giving Kush & OJ a spin when it dropped but it just wasn't for me. I liked maybe 1 or 2 songs ("Good Dank" was one of them).

    But a legend in the making? You knew that was a reach when you made the thread nigga. Be honest. Dude ain't no legend & probably won't be. He is talented however what he's now famous for is what's gonna define him as an artist, career & brand down the line which isn't good for his case.

    Can't agree, i was never much of a fan.


    Shad is way nicer than Wiz. If anyone is next in line for the 'legend in the making' title it's him.

    that's where u see the real fans

    why is it a reach, i didn't say he was top top 20 all time or THE GOAT, but the shyt he did.. the work he put in.. i'm talkin his whole career up till now his catalog is solid, and he's still young. plus i said "in the making"

    Dude is still expiramenting. How many times has he switched styles? His K&OJ, Black & Yellow, On My Level sound is what got him poppin. Then we get that bullshit he got out with the weekend. His image changes every 2 weeks. Dude obviously is following orders of the pop gods.

    Every bench player in the nba has a story like wiz has. My point is yes when you look at how far he comes that's cool but everyone has a story of how they got to the pros.....what did you do there?

    How did you react to the fame what numbers did you put up each year and were they consistent? Do you have 1 post move or 3 diff ones? How do you react during the double team.

    Wiz post fame has been a 1 trick pony of making the same pop single. Since hes got to the pros hes went against mezmorized by wifing up a stripper and being gah gah with that bald hoe. Hes soften up nad not gotten back to that mixtape flow(which was overated to begin with). He hasn't changed the game really same cliche talk. Hes letting the label call the shots instead of being the alpha male.

    I agree with what you're saying but wiz is not that kinda artist that just wants to be underground

    He's going to do his mainstream shyt and he's gonna so his underground shyt that line is drawn clearly

    Wiz's flow and demeanor remind me of a young Jay-Z.
