Wiz Khalifa announces he’s releasing new music “sometime this week”

Rapper also confirms he’s nearly finished his next album

Wiz Khalifa has revealed he will be releasing new music “sometime this week”.

The rapper also confirmed his new album is in the “finishing up” stages.

Khalifa wrote on Twitter: “Happy Sunday. I’m getting new music mixed and artwork done to drop this week. Also finishing up the album. A boss’ work is never done.”


The news comes a month after Khalifa released joint album ‘TGOD Mafia: Rude Awakening’ with producer TM88 and Memphis rapper Juicy J under the band name TGOD Mafia. Khalifa also released his sixth solo album ‘Khalifa’ in February.

The new album is expected to be ‘Rolling Papers 2’, the sequel to Khalifa’s 2011 album ‘Rolling Papers’. Khalifa said in 2015 that he was working on the follow-up, and he previewed an as-yet-untitled new song from the album in May.

The only confirmed guest on ‘Rolling Papers 2’ is TGOD Mafia bandmate TM88, the Atlanta musician who has produced Gucci Mane and Travi$ Scott.

It was announced last week that Khalifa would be the joint headliner of Bestival with Sean Paul on the festival’s final day alongside fellow headliners The Cure and Major Lazer on September 8-11.


Last week (June 29), Khalifa stated that he hadn’t forgiven Kanye West for their feud, which began when West launched a series of insults at Khalifa in January. Khalifa told US radio show The Breakfast Club: “Do I like him? Who would in that situation?”
