3. BAMMER

“Bammer” is easily Wiz Khalifa’s most unique song in five years.

“Bammer” is powered by a grittier version of RBL Posse’s “Don’t Give Me No Bammer” instrumental. Over it, Wiz Khalifa hits us with bars that are irrational, obnoxious, and downright reckless. Below are some of the things he says in the song:

Don’t give me no bammer weed
We don’t smoke that shit, it’s TGOD
Don’t give me no bammer weed
We don’t smoke that shit, it’s TGOD
Don’t give me no bammer weed
We don’t smoke that shit, it’s TGOD
Don’t give me no bammer weed (Okay)
We don’t smoke that shit, it’s TGOD

Ridin’, slidin’, dippin’, vibin’
Bitch, get high, come and live this life
I’m a rich nigga, I could fuck a rich bitch twice
I’m a rich nigga, I could fuck a rich nigga wife

Kudos to AZlyrics!

While “Bammer” will be enjoyed by smokers that love being savage n***as when they are high, I can also see the song being a hit in old people clubs.

 

 

2. CONTACT

Tyga and Wiz Khalifa should form a duo.

“Contact” is powered by a beat that straddles the line between annoying and hard-hitting. Over it, Tyga and Wiz Khalifa let loose, going back and forth with one another about smoking, finessing, and spending money (I don’t know what them n***as are buying, most of the shops around the globe are closed). While I love the infectious hook and verse the former gives us on the song, I think it’s the latter’s hard-ass rapping that sticks out the most, to me.

Why would Wiz Khalifa and Tyga release a song called “Contact” when we should be practicing social distancing right now?

 

 

1. Y U MAD

I would blast “Y U Mad” at one of those dark clubs that usually attracts women that drink more than men.

“Y U Mad” is powered by this Mustard beat that f**ks up housing foundations. Over it, Ty Dolla $ign blesses us with a smooth-ass hook that has him sounding like a pimp with a runny nose, Wiz Khalifa blesses us with a sly-ass verse that has him sounding like the best thing since sliced bread, and Megan Thee Stallion blesses us with a bossy-ass verse that has her intimidating both men and women with her big money and trill ways. Each rapper on the song clearly thinks they are tighter than Lil Uzi Vert’s pants.

OVERALL RATING

(C)

 

Wiz Khalifa may no longer be an A-list rapper, but he does still have some serious appeal to him. On The Sage Of Wiz Khalifa, the Pittsburgh native hits us with seven straight bangers that are hard to ignore (Sadly, they aren’t easy to enjoy either).

For the most part, you get a version of Wiz Khalifa that is trill, reckless, and cocky on The Sage Of Wiz Khalifa. In other words, expect to hear verses that mirror what you’ve been hearing from him for the last ten years (Wiz’s biggest weakness is his inability to drop meaningful bars). What is unique about The Sage of Wiz Khalifa is that the album features bangers that are weed-influenced, bangers that are perfect for clubs, and bangers that give off both old school and new school hip-hop vibes. All in all, The Sage of Wiz Khalifa won’t be winning any Grammys anytime soon, but it will get you through a dull-ass day.
