HipHopDX

On Khalifa, there isn’t much that raises nor lowers Wiz’s stock and after a couple more play throughs the album comes across as fairly average.

AllMusic

These expansive cuts surely benefit the Wiz discography, and will do best when shuffled into his canon, but lump them together into one LP and take away the driving influence and Khalifa feels more like part of a continuum than a self-contained statement.

Billboard

On Khalifa, he's characteristically mellow and melodic, mixing rhymes that are part equal parts braggadocio and motivational slogans in an almost singular pursuit of highs and riches.

XXL

Khalifa likely won’t sway opinion of Wiz Khalifa, whether positive or negative. For better or worse, it’s a portrait of the rapper we’ve seen for years. It does do things a little more consistently and adds a little more detail than what we’re used to seeing.

Pitchfork
It delves as far as it can without hitting government-name territory, and for that the true fans will embrace it. But how many times can you retell the same story? Good thing stoners have a short memory.

Rolling Stone
It’s only when he lets himself get a little weird, and flexes underused strengths like his singing voice, that his music is as fun as he wants it to be.

Spin
There aren’t any memorable lines, just sustained filler: rhyming “plane” with “chain” and “car” with “star,” as he has on every project since 2009. This is such old hat by now it’s a stovepipe.

Wiz Khalifa tries. He definitely does try. And often, he succeeds, like when he perfects a flow on a trap-inspired beat or shows off his impeccable taste in trippy melodies. But in the greater scheme of things, maybe he should try less to please to the current mainstream and instead take hold of his individuality beyond simple rhymes and weed.

So much better than the mediocre "Blacc Hollywood", i retrieve the Wiz that i love, in line with the excellent "O.N.I.F.C." !
