New Wiz Khalifa Mixtape Crashes Servers From Too Many Downloads
Wiz Khalifa has been part of much Internet fodder since his relationship began with girlfriend turned fiance Amber Rose. However, the Pittsburgh rapper got a bit of payback once he released a link to his new mixtape, and crashed the DatPiff website which houses his new project.
The mixtape called ‘Taylor Allerdice’ which is named after Wiz’s high-school, is already a trending topic on Twitter, and had the rapper bubbling with satisfaction when the server went down, as he tweeted, “Yea Taylors, We Crashed That S—!!! Then adding, “I’m So Turned Up In This B— man”.
With 17 tracks, including features from Rick Ross, Juicy J, Chevy Woods, and of course main squeeze Amber Rose, the mixtape serves as a precursor to Khalifia’s second studio album entitled ‘O.N.I.F.C.’ coming later this year.
According to the DatPiff website, 250,000 people downloaded the mixtape within a mere 24 hours, which caused some fans to receive a “temporarily unavailable” message when trying to access the link. The large amount of downloads and remaining fan interest cements Wiz Khalifa’s place as a prominent Hip-Hop mainstay, and not just a hot rapper of the day.
The link to the mixtape has since been restored, as fans continue to wait eagerly for the follow up to Wiz’s 2011 album smash ‘Rolling Papers.’ The 24-year old rapper has mentioned the new album will feature Dipset rapper Cam’ron, which has always been a dream collaboration for Khalifa.
As to why he didn’t put the Cam’ron song on the new mixtape, Wiz said the song was too important to simply release it quickly. “I did that more justice than putting it on the mixtape, because I’ve been waiting for that collaboration forever,” he told MTV.
