Riff: Wiz Khalifa – “Time”

Dec 3, 2012

I spend a lot of nights thinking, how did I make it this far/I spend money every chance I get/Cause goddamn I work hard

from Time lyrics by Wiz Khalifa

The glossy, over synthesized beat is evidence of complacency. Within that convenience, is contentment and almost no progress is made. Khalifa says it himself at the beginning of the song: “I’m just doing what I usually do man, sticking to the script, no new lines.”
