Wiz Khalifa Names His Best Mixtape & It's Not 'Kush & Orange Juice'

“That’s the best Wiz mixtape ever. That started it all.”
Wiz Khalifa Names His Best Mixtape & It's Not 'Kush & Orange Juice'

Well, you can’t get them all right. 

In a new interview with Rob Markman of Genius, Wiz Khalifa was asked to name his best mixtape, to which he answered 2007’s Prince of the City 2.

Wiz not only anointed Prince of the City 2 his greatest mixtape of all time but did so with an incredulous air of certainty, as if suggesting any other project is just ridiculous.

“N****s don’t even know about that one,” he told Markman. “They caught up in like the internet era. Chevy just sent me a picture of the Prince of the City 2 CD, my n***a. They don’t even got CDs no more. I mean, they do, but they don’t got CD players… But yeah, Prince of the City 2, that’s the best Wiz mixtape ever. That started it all.”

Ah, there it is. While fans will rightfully rally behind Kush & Orange Juice for one reason or another, be it the carefree atmosphere that wafts from track to track, the escapism of smoking culture, or his signature laugh, from an artist’s perspective, romanticizing the genesis of your career is just as valid.

While Kush & Orange Juice might be fans’ fondest memory of Wiz, if not their introduction to his music, Khalifa was introduced to himself on Prince of the City 2, and there’s power in that as well. And as far as the science of lineages goes, if there was no Prince there would have been no Kush. That’s a reality no one wants to experience.
