“Rain” pops off with Trap Wiz unapologetically nodding to his daily kush habit and complaining about how he can’t stand “fake n—as.” As Missy Elliott’s Timbaland-produced ’90s classic “(The Rain) Supa Dupa Fly” provides the backdrop, the ’Burgh MC mouths off.
“Clique full of psychos/ Goon in some tight clothes / Me? my paper’s straight, no typos,” Wiz boasts before expounding on his work ethic. “I’m in the studio all night / Make sure the sh– you call a dream is what I really call my life.”
When we caught up with Wiz earlier this month in Anaheim, California, he told us his 28 Grams tape is shaping up to be a classic, in line with offerings like his Cabin Fever series and Kush and Orange Juice. And he hinted at why the free projects tend to get the reception they do.
“I feel like all my mixtapes, they just speak to the time that I’m at in my life,” the Taylor Gang captain explained, “as well as my albums do, but I get to be a little more free and [have] more fun with my mixtapes. I’m more experimenting with albums.”
