We all know by now that Wiz Khalifa is pretty much a superhero. Even with a baby on the way (like seriously on the way) with his fiance Amber Rose, he still has time to make music. His new album, O.N.I.F.C., is set to come out on Dec. 4 — but in the meantime, Wiz has released the track titled “The Bluff.” In the song featuring Cam’ron, Wiz talks about his fast, jet-setting life. “I got so much,” he says repeatedly. This might seem a bit arrogant, but Wiz says it in such a sweet and humble way that I can tell he’s being pretty thankful for all that he has.
In true Wiz style, the song wouldn’t be complete without the queuing of a blunt being smoked. But maybe that’s all just a part of the message of the song. The mellow vibe of the track definitely goes with the theme of taking a second to chill and appreciate life. And maybe smoking a little marijuana.
Listen to “The Buff” here:
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.
