In case you haven’t noticed, Wiz Khalifa isn’t planning on coming down off his high anytime soon. Just a little more than a year after releasing his major label debut, Rolling Papers—and less than six months after the release of the Mac & Devin Go to High School soundtrack he recorded alongside Snoop Dogg—the Pittsburgh MC is already putting the finishing touches on his much-anticipated sophomore set, O.N.I.F.C. (which stands for Only Nigga In First Class), right now. Due out on August 28, Wiz has gathered a bunch of big names like Adam Levine, Cam’Ron, Chris Brown, and The Weeknd to lend guest vocals, while Pharrell, will.i.am, and Rico Love have all contributed production efforts.
But, you won’t have to wait until the end of the summer to get your first taste of O.N.I.F.C. In fact, Wiz is planning on releasing the first single from the album, “Work Hard,” produced by Stargate and Benny Blanco, on Pittsburgh radio station 96.1 KISS on Monday. And, to get you ready for it, we put together a list of the 5 Reasons Wiz Khalifa’s New Album, O.N.I.F.C., Is Going To Be Better Than Rolling Papers. We’ll definitely have the audio of “Work Hard” for you on Monday when the song drops. But, until then, roll one up with this and enjoy the ride.—Chris Yuscavage
