From the constant, weed and liquor-fueled revelry described throughout Wiz Khalifa‘s musical work, you might be led to believe that the Steel City phenom had mastered the art of consequence-free hedonism. Not so—on new single No Sleep (a cut which briefly charted in April, but is only now receiving official support), the emcee confesses: “Last night I let the party get the best of me” So, what’s the damage? As he continues, “Wakin’ up in the morning two hoes layin’ next to me, plus I heard an officer arrested me.” OK, so it isn’t your typical cautionary tale… or a cautionary tale at all, really. On the contrary, this breezy selection finds Khalifa rolling right out of bed for a breakfast of Kush and OJ, before heading out to do it all over again. Benny Blanco and Noel “Detail” Fisher team up on the production tip, together crafting an irresistibly sugary synth backdrop as Khalifa offers us a glimpse into the life of a fresh and fly young individual. The hit appeal is manifest, but how does No Sleep stack up against its predecessors? That, my friends, is for you to decide. For those who haven’t already copped it, Wiz’ Rolling Papers is available en ce moment from online retailers and record stores everywhere.
