Though Booth readers are always ready to offer sharp critiques of mainstream singles, Wiz Khalifa‘s Work Hard Play Hard, with its anthemic chorus, helium-voiced sample and self-congratulatory verses, was praised by our discerning regulars for the compromise it struck between pop appeal and lyrical freshness when it hit our front page back in May. Can the Pittsburgh phenom craft an equally appealing remix of the joint without upsetting that delicate balance? Today, we find out. Joining Wiz over Benny Blanco and Stargate‘s original production, Young Jeezy lends his gruff block talk to the middle, and Lil Weezy invites detractors to “Suck [his] skateboard,” on the back end. Your verdict, Boothgoers? In addition to copping Khalifa’s O.N.I.F.C. LP when it hits record stores and online retailers September 18, fans can hear more material from mixtape Wayne on Dedication 4, scheduled for free digital release August 30.
