Even among the fast-living crowd of rap hitmakers, Wiz Khalifa‘s dedication to debauchery separates him from the pack – the man loves weed, liquor, fast whips and faster women, and he’s not ashamed to admit it. That wasn’t always the case, though; on the latest leak off his and Snoop‘s forthcoming movie soundtrack, the Steel City native takes us back to a time when he was Young, Wild and Free, still uncorrupted by worldly pleasures. Nah, just pulling your leg; the young Khalifa portrayed here is just as enamored with King Kong-scale joints and dime pieces as he is today, he was simply balling on a smaller scale. Backed by The Smeezingtons’ light piano boardwork, Wiz puts a nostalgic spin on the usual weed rhymes, reminiscing about teenage follies and even mimicking an inexperienced smoker’s cough. Snoop grabs the mic for verse two, reflecting upon the inexorable march of time (OK, kush and cars figure in as well). Like what you’re hearing? I’ll give you three guesses as to when the soundtrack to Wiz and Snoop’s Mac & Devin Go to High School soundtrack is set to drop, and the first two don’t count (cough, 4/20, cough).
Note: This feature has been updated with a newly-released, single version of Young, Wild & Free.
