Wiz Khalifa has officially decided on the title for the follow-up to 2012’s O.N.I.F.C., naming his upcoming album Blacc Hollywood.
The Taylor Gang rapper announced the news on Tuesday after giving some love to Three 6 Mafia’s Juicy J. “Juicy’s album comes out this August. My guys a legend and still puts in more work than u young n—-s #StayTrippy #Tgod,” he wrote, then added, “Im droppin an album later this year too. & namin dat bitch ’Blacc Hollywood.'”

Taylors seemed to take quickly to the new title, with @RealSteelWheels, writing, “Hell yeah!! I like the title too super ill.”
@RealAlexTaylor chimed in, “Hollywood couldn’t change yu yo.”
Just before making his album announcement, Wiz also dropped a video for “Old Chanel,” featuring Smoke DZA, but he didn’t specify whether the song would actually end up on the album, writing simply, “Just A Gift.”
Back in March, Wiz made a cameo on “RapFix Live,” where he explained that he and his newborn son, Sebastian “The Bash” Taylor Thomaz, had struck a deal that would allow him to get back to recording music. “He’s letting me get back to work, so it’s good,” Wiz joked. “We talked about that the other day; he let me know it was cool.”
Fans will likely find out how fatherhood is treating Wiz on his new album since he and fiancée Amber Rose welcomed their baby boy in February. In addition to his own work, the Pittsburgh rapper has been making the rounds with a few features lately, including an appearance on Kelly Rowland’s “Gone,” which he joined her to perform on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” earlier this month.
