Wiz Khalifa Reflects On 'Classic' Mixtape "Kush & Orange Juice" 5 Years Later

Today marks the 5-year anniversary of Wiz Khalifa’s classic Kush & Orange Juice mixtape. It was the one that changed it all for the Taylor Gang captain. If you remember the tape started trending on twitter hours before Wiz even dropped it and when he finally did all of hip-hop took notice.

MTV News’ Andres Tardio hooked up with Wiz in L.A. This past weekend and he explained to us that when creating K&OJ he was hoping to craft his own Illmatic, Ready to Die or Reasonable Doubt. In his own way, it seems that Wiz did that.



Icon of hip-hop culture and a pivotal part of the MTV News team, Sway has been a staple of the music-news arena for more than a decade. From giving Eminem, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac their very first radio airplay on his local show in the mid-’90s to providing television viewers with their first good look at some of today’s hottest celebrities in music, film, fashion and sports. Sway has been there for some of music and the world’s biggest moments.
