A little before noon Eastern Standard time on April 11, 2010, Wiz Khalifa turned it up a notch. After dropping seven mixtapes and two albums, he finally made a real splash with Kush & Orange Juice. Backed by whimsical production, Kush & Orange showcases Wiz’s growth as an artist and songwriter. He brings listeners into his hazy world with cuts like, “Mesmorized”, “In The Cut” and “Up”. Meanwhile, his papers burn bright on joints like “The Statement” and “Never Been”. In fact, Kush & OJ came so freshly squeezed that even Entertainment Weekly and The New York Times took notice.
