[In recognition of anticipated sophomore albums like Drake's Take Care and Wale's Ambition dropping this month, SOHH is featuring entertainment personalities each day this week naming their most favorite debut LP follow-up and seeing if it survived the often-discussed "sophomore jinx". After Big Sean went with Wale's Ambition, Amber Rose picks Wiz Khalifa's Rolling Papers.]
[*Editor's Note: In actuality, Wiz Khalifa's Rolling Papers is his third solo album, following Show & Prove (2006) and Deal or No Deal (2009). Sorry, Amber.]
I would have to say Wiz Khalifa, Rolling Papers, is my favorite album. I love it because Wiz is not just a great human being but he's super, super talented.
Wiz's Rolling Papers is just a mixture of all different types of music on that album. It's not just straight hip-hop. When you listen to it, you hear that it's fun, it's sad, it's emotional, it's inspirational.
So I just love the fact that there are so many different aspects on that album. I really enjoyed Rolling Papers.
