Wiz Khalifa Officially Releases Early Mixtape ‘Star Power’ To Streaming After 15 Years
Originally released on September 17, 2008, Star Power is an essential document from Wiz Khalifa’s early career, helping develop his lush and luxurious sound and establish his reputation as the game’s hardest-working and most talented stoner. Hosted by DJ Deez, the tape features multiple guest appearances from Wiz’s close associate Chevy Woods, then known as Kev Da Hustla, and production sculpted at the legendary I.D. Labs by Pittsburgh natives like Sledgren, E. Dan, Johnny Juliano, Rocky Fontaine, and Big Jerm, who produced hits for Wiz, Mac Miller, and more during his career. Spanning 23 tracks, Star Power exhibits the melodic mastery and strong songwriting that soon made him a superstar, acting as a crucial stepping stone from Pittsburgh prominence to worldwide recognition. Soon afterward, Wiz would release the blog era classic “The Thrill, ” plus mixtapes like Kush & Orange Juice and Flight School, which built upon the foundation that Star Power laid.
“I’m pumped to have Star Power on streaming platforms for fans to hear their favorites from this tape” says Wiz
The release of Star Power continues Wiz Khalifa’s efforts to clear his classic mixtapes for streaming services, with the assistance of Rostrum Records. Stream it today!
