Wiz Khalifa & HipHopDX Releases Trailer for 'Still Rolling Papers' Documentary
In honor of the 10th anniversary of Wiz Khalifa's debut album Rolling Papers, HipHopDX will produce a new documentary titled Still Rolling Papers that will reflect on the Pittsburgh rapper's legacy, the rise of Taylor Gang and the influence Wiz has had on Hip Hop over the past decade.
“10 years sounds like a lot but it don’t feel like that much it still feels fresh,” Wiz can be heard saying in the film’s trailer, which dropped on Monday (March 28). “It still feels good. For me, it’s when I look back at the footage. Cause I’m always in it when I’m there, but when I look back I’m like ‘whoa we did some magnificent shit, for real.'”
Wiz Khalifa's YouTube channel will premiere the new documentary on Tuesday (March 29) at 5 p.m. PST/8 p.m. EST. The release of the documentary will mark 11 years to the day since Khalifa released Rolling Papers. The album was released by Atlantic and Rostrum Records, selling 197,000 copies its first week in the United States and featuring Curren$y, Chevy Woods and Too $hort.
Curren$y, Snoop Dogg, Chevy Woods, Wiz Khalifa, and others are featured on Still Rolling Papers. In this documentary, Wiz explores his Pittsburgh upbringing, the story behind his hit song "Black & Yellow," and the making of his album, Rolling Papers.
Although the documentary focuses on Wiz' debut album, it also explores how a crew of friends took their dreams into their own hands and created one of the most influential movements in Hip Hop and beyond.
The Taylor Gang Leader released Rolling Papers 2 in 2018, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and featured Gucci Mane, Swae Lee, Ty Dolla $ign, PartyNextDoor, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony and Snoop Dogg.
In honor of Rolling Paper's 10-year anniversary, Khalifa released a special edition of the project in 2021, featuring the "Black and Yellow (G-Mix)," which featured Juicy J, Snoop Dogg, and T-Pain. Also included are two new bonus tracks titled "Too Stoned" and "Taylor Gang," as well as the Cabin Fever cut "Middle of You."
From Khalifa Kush and McQueen liquor to owning an MMA fight league, Wiz has continued to push the envelope. He has also released a new album with Juicy J called Stoner's Night, and he is set to release a collaborative album titled Full Court Press with Smoke DZA, Big K.R.I.T., and Girl Talk.
HipHopDX produced Still Rolling Papers in association with Atlantic Records/ Warner Music Group, SMAC Entertainment, and Taylor Gang. Wiz Khalifa, Will Dzombak, Kevin Hofman, and Sharath Cherian served as executive producers. Blair Avery directed and edited the film; Jordan Saint-Pierre and Jeremy Hecht conducted the interviews.
