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.”
