With all the work Wiz Khalifa puts into his music, the guy has got to have some downtime. I think it’s a good rule of thumb that you have to balance out the work with the play or else the continuum will be thrown out of order and your work and play will be out of whack. You don’t want that, trust me.
In Khalifa’s Bill Paladino-directed video for “Work Hard, Play Hard” we see tons of people working hard, whether they’re in construction, sports or ballet. Then after their gruelling day they obvs go to the club and throw away at least half of their money on cover and shots (the other probably half goes into RRSPs, mortgage etc).
Khalifa stands by, sometimes draped in an American Flag, and raps: The bigger the bill/ The harder you ball/ Well I’m throwin’ mine/ Cause my money long.”
The track is from his forthcoming album O.N.I.F.C., which is due out Aug. 28.
