—Wiz Khalifa dropped his Taylor Gang Allderdice mixtape 10 years ago today, and in celebration of the milestone, the “Black and Yellow” rapper released the project on major streaming platforms.
The 17-track mixtape, with fan-favorite hits like “My Favorite Song” and “California,” earned positive reviews upon its release and landed at number eight on Complex magazine’s Best Albums of 2012 list.
Fans were excited at the news of the album’s streaming release, which arrived on 4/20, the date known as a celebration for smoking marijuana, one of Wiz’s known pastimes.
–In a recent interview with Yahoo! Life, Normani opened up about working to stay body positive.
“I constantly remind myself to be kind to myself,” she said. “Even though you can’t expect the rest of the world to do that, it’s like at the end of the day, somebody has to, so why not show up for yourself? Why not lift yourself up?”
The “Wild Side” singer thanked Beyoncé and Janet Jackson for being the role models the young star needed growing up.
“It was so important for me to have a Janet and have a [Beyoncé] with curves to find my place and to also know that, ‘OK she looks like me. And she’s successful. She’s beautiful and I can do the same thing.’ Little Black me needed to see that.”
Normani, a member of the former girl group Fifth Harmony, has taken the confidence she’s gained over time and put it into her music, most recently in her popular vulnerable hit “Fair.”
