Wiz Khalifa - 'O.N.I.F.C'
This album offers little else besides airline advice
4 / 10
“I got so much swag, the airport don’t even wanna touch my bag”, raps Wiz Khalifa on ‘Fall Asleep’, offering up some help to any would-be terrorists devoid of the necessary levels of bravado to sail through customs unbothered. ‘O.N.I.F.C’ (which stands for ‘Only Nigga In First Class’) is 25-year-old rapper Khalifa’s second album proper and sadly offers little else besides this airline advice. Instead we get a collection of sloppy rhymes and low-IQ beats, as ever accentuated with Wiz’s stoned giggle and the hacking sound of his smoker’s cough. Even a late appearance from The Weeknd can’t save this omni-tonal snoozefest.
