    Wiz's bleary-eyed charisma elevates both radio bait ("Got Everything") and trippy shape-shifters ("No Limit").

    The album slightly suffers from copycat syndrome with "Initiation" being the latest in Hip Hop's long line of Lex Luger replications (guest starring Lola Monroe, Taylor Gang's Nicki Minaj soundalike) and "Remember You" following the trend of working with drug chic singer The Weeknd, but Wiz Khalifa mostly succeeds at occupying his own comfortable lane.

    While O.N.I.F.C. doesn't break new ground musically for Wiz, certainly not lyrically at least, his flight won't be grounded any time soon.

    The beats, by Pittsburgh homeboys ID Labs and others, whip up aural smoke billows, and Khalifa's are just off-kilter enough to give you a contact high.

    On O.N.I.F.C. Khalifa splits the difference between his druggy muse and his pop obligations, without much interest in finding a middle ground.

    Even a late appearance from The Weeknd can't save this omni-tonal snoozefest.

    Clinging to the guest stars is crucial to getting through this thing--pros like Courtney Noelle provide basic hooks where the headliner's own horrible mantras ("I got so much," "Fall asleep") fail completely.

    Ive been a fan of Wiz since I was in 8th Grade so Ive witnessed the many changes in his music. From the hungry-street rap to the current youngIve been a fan of Wiz since I was in 8th Grade so Ive witnessed the many changes in his music. From the hungry-street rap to the current young rich **** **** Wiz is still a decent rapper. He can flow very well and while the lyrics on O.N.I.F.C. may mostly consist of smoking, traveling, fast cars with no roof, and his sudden haters, him rapping is quite enjoyable. The production of the album is damn near perfect, literally. Wiz has always had an excellent ear for beats, but the music O.N.I.F.C. may be his best to date. The only problem on the album "Let It Go", which features Akon. The song sounds like a Rolling Papers leftover. Other than that, great album. Wiz may rap about the same **** throughout the album, but each song has its own special, distinct feel to it. Top Songs: "Paperbond" "Bluffin"
    "Got Everything"
    "Initiation"
    "Medicated"

It was different and it was definitely more diverse which is something I like to see in hip hop albums. Although the album was better from his previous work, almost the majority of the album was made up with generic songs with unoriginal lyrics, as well as a song which went for almost ten minutes.

The biggest problem is that it lacks enough creative substance to make it stand out from the rest of the pack. Sure, there are some solid selections such as the celebratory banger "Work Hard, Play Hard" and "Remember You", a bittersweet collaboration with the Weeknd, but for the most part, this is a lazy uninspired effort.

    Once again, Wiz continues to rap about how much money he makes and all the things he can afford, and especially his fondness of smoking weed. Those are pretty much the two central themes that constantly reappear on this album, and trust me, it gets old really fast, the lyrics are a mess.

    Unless you're a die hard fan of Wiz, "O.N.I.F.C." isn't worth your time or money. At the very least, I definitely suggest buying "Work Hard, Play Hard". It's the best song on the album, by far.

I must say Got Everything and maybe like 2 other songs got my attention. But it wasn't worth pre-ordering this so called 'album'. I liked Wiz but this album is just a disappointment. Expand
