Sing it, Wiz! “Promises” is latter stage Khalifa, with a lot more tender husband vibes than any of his other singles. His voice is not intolerable and with Auto-Tune it seeps into the track calmly. Check out the bluesy Wiz Khalifa after the jump.
H/t The Masked Gorilla for this, the lead single from the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla $ign add their cowabunga Taylor Gang surfer swerve to this soundtrack song. Juicy J also “got your back like a turtle shell.” Good to know. Check the video for the reptile movie after the jump.
What makes a summer song? It’s sweaty but never sad about it. The right summer smash makes you put the double-decker barbecue plate on your lawn chair, pour out something cool and get close to the speakers. It’s naked and unashamed, of course. The song’s gotta be loud. Not volume-wise either. You need to be able to open that sunroof, lower the windows on the highway and still annoy passersby with the bass drop. They’re great songs because they’re disposable songs. A summer jam is the wet wipe of music: refreshing as it is fleeting and oh so useful at the right time.
Load these songs into your playlist and be the DJ you always wanted for the weekend.
Ty Dolla $ign and Wiz want to grab her and her friends to bring the party to Snoop’s house. Snoop really really shouldn’t be awake at this hour but what the hell, right? Surprised this didn’t come out earlier in the summer to get some Memorial Day and 4th of July burn, though it’s still a good preview of what Blacc Hollywood will sound like.
Fresh off the release of his 28 Grams tape, Wiz Khalifa pays a visit to Power 105’s Breakfast Club program. Wiz speaks on the new mixtape, his upcoming “We Dem Boyz” remix with Nas, getting arrested and more.
