Ten highlights from Wiz Khalifa's "Cabin Fever" series.
This week, we got the third and perhaps final installment of Wiz Khalifa's Cabin Fever mixtape series, which began all the way back in February 2011. Released before the major label Rolling Papers, the first edition presented a very new and startling persona for the once laid-back and amicable rapper: Trap Wiz. He linked up with Lex Luger on his post-Flockaveli and Teflon Don victory lap, as well as Gucci Mane mainstay Drumma Boy and nascent talents Sonny Digital and DJ Spinz, giving his Pittsburgh-via-LA sound a decidedly ATL feel for a change.
It kicked off an evolution of Trap Wiz that's still ongoing, as evidenced not only by the new tape but also by the majority of the Rolling Papers 2 cuts he's shared thus far. Wiz really connected with something in the sound, and the Cabin Fever series gave him space to come into his own, sounding a little out-of-place throughout most of the first tape, but hitting his stride on the second and even blending in with his Atlanta peers on the third.
Today, we're selecting our picks for the ten best tracks of the series' 34 cuts. Let us know your personal choices in the comments.
