The next review of the Wiz Khalifa marathon will be Cabin Fever, one of the most acclaimed mixtapes of Wiz Khalifa’s discography. Released on February 17th, 2011, this, along with Kush and OJ(check out that review), really set Wiz up as the next superstar, and then Rolling Papers obviously brought him to the top. And quality-wise, this was disappointing. One major issue is that it wasn’t nearly as good as the expectations I had for it. If this wasn’t so hyped up, it would not have flopped as much for me. One big factor that it flopped was the fact that there wasn’t much replay value out of this, which is a mainstay if Wiz Khalifa albums. Normally, if an album wasn’t great by Khalifa, there are some amazing songs to help offset the bad songs. However, that didn’t happen here. Most of the memorable parts were features, which while not taking away from the quality of the mixtape, is not a very good sign for Wiz Khalifa. The production was handled by frequent collaborator Lex Luger, who was credited on over half of the tracks. He was helped by Sonny Digital(1), DJ Spinz(1) & Drumma Boy(1), among others. This section wasn’t bad, but was not anything special and wasn’t good enough to really enhance the project as a whole. Overall, this tape was much more mediocre than I expected and did not meet the high bar set by critics, in my opinion.
Best Songs- Erryday, Phone Number & Cabin Fever
Worst Songs- Hustlin, WTF & Middle of You
Rating- This was not as good as many seem to believe. While I appreciate how much it aided Wiz Khalifa’s come up, I really didn’t like any of the songs fully, and the only parts I did enjoy were features. Ima give this a 4.5/10. Very mediocre and disappointing. My next review will be Rolling Papers, and I am expecting a stud album there, so hopefully I am not disappointed. Until then, I’m out.
