Riff: Wiz Khalifa – “Fall Asleep”

Dec 3, 2012

I got so much swaaaaaaaag/That the airport don’t even want to touch my baaaaaaaag/Only nigga in first claaaaaaaass

from Fall Asleep lyrics by Wiz Khalifa

The minimal soundscape works for Wiz Khalifa. It masks his laziness, which gives him a wide open freeway to navigate his two dimensional world. Even in this sense his cadences are sloppy, and for him to pass this off as entertainment is distressing both for his fans and his label.
