Wiz Khalifa, O.N.I.F.C. — September 18
Wiz Khalifa is taking a step down from his clouds in the sky to show just how much he’s living in the lap of luxury. His new lifestyle is personified in the 70s inspired artwork for his sophomore album, O.N.I.F.C.
A bare-chested Wiz is reclined in a black chair staring boldly into the camera, wearing a snow-leopard fur coat that seems to swallow his small tatted frame, patriotic stars and stripes pants, several glittering rings and a marijuana leaf chain. This cover is undeniably more luxurious than those for previous projects Rolling Papers, Deal or No Deal, and Show and Prove.
Back in February, he explained the meaning behind his explicit album title, which stands for “Only N*gga In First Class,” on #SwayinTheMorning on Shade 45. "I was just talking about me being a young rich dude and being black," he told Sway. "It looks crazy to them when I walk up to them and show them my ticket or I'm going in priority seating. They're like 'You're sure?'" With this album, he intends to fully celebrate all his success and his riches in spite of such ill-treatment.
Well Wiz, with this cover, point taken.
