After years of anticipation, Wiz Khalifa’s Rolling Papers 2 album finally has a release date. The album, which is a sequel to the rapper’s 2011 debut, Rolling Papers, is due out July 13th, and is preceded by the Gucci Mane-assisted single “Real Rich,” of which the Cole Bennett-directed video arrives today. Bennett has been the director of choice for the SoundCloud generation of rappers, bringing the songs of Lil Pump, Smokepurpp, Lil Xan, and more to life in colorful videos that garner hundreds of millions of views. His signature style is present in Wiz’s new clip, which features bright text, woozy backgrounds and inventive cuts. Wiz and Gucci Mane previously collaborated on the catchy 2013 cut “Nuthin On Ya,” and look very happy to be collaborating again following Gucci’s incarceration.
Wiz has also collaborated with Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd on a new single called “Hopeless Romantic,” released today. The song is also expected to appear on Rolling Papers 2.
The Pittsburgh rapper released his Khalifa mixtape and Juicy J x TM88 collaborative project Rude Awakening in 2016. His last proper studio album Blacc Hollywood was released in 2014.
