2. Wiz's new album features him working with a completely different batch of big-name producers and a range of guest artists.
Absolutely no disrespect to Pittsburgh producers E. Dan or Big Jerm, but they handled a lot of Rolling Papers. Some of their productions worked really well (see: "When I'm Gone" and "The Race") but some of them didn't really force Wiz to push himself as an artist. So we're glad to see that, in addition to his hometown producers, Wiz also has names like Pharrell and will.i.am in the mix this time. Of course, he runs the risk of creating tracks that are a little too commercial by grabbing big names (and that was the criticism of Rolling Papers) but you also increase the likelihood of him creating some songs that don't sound like other Wiz tracks that we've already heard before by grabbing those guys to produce for him. We're interested to see what he's come up with.
