O.N.I.F.C. Wiz Khalifa

O.N.I.F.C

type:
Music
Current Status:
In Season
performer:
Wiz Khalifa
music label:
81111
genre:
Hip-Hop/Rap

We gave it a B+

Having elbowed his way into the Hot 100 VIP room — and a million Steelers fans’ hearts — with 2010’s inescapable ”Black and Yellow,” the pride of Pittsburgh largely backs away from easy access on his second album. Though O.N.I.F.C. scrimps on pop hooks, Wiz’s bleary-eyed charisma elevates both radio bait (”Got Everything”) and trippy shape-shifters (”No Limit”). His singular style tends to derail the guest spots — which is okay, because Wiz’s most potent collaborator is clearly a plant-shaped lady named Mary. B+
