Wiz Khalifa is gearing up to release his fourth studio album with Atlantic and Rostrum Records, O.N.I.F.C., an acronym that stands for Only N*gga in First Class, itself paying homage to Mobb Deep's Prodigy's H.N.I.C. (Head N*gga in Charge).
In anticipation of the new album, Wiz is hitting the ground running with a brand new single, and it sounds like a big one: "Work Hard, Play Hard."
This record has radio-friendly written all over it, with production from Benny Blanco and Stargate all but sealing the deal. Wiz has created the perfect motivational record that works as a catch-all for situations in which you might need an extra boost of encouragement: whether that be lifting in the gym, ahead of a big meeting, or even as you warm up with your friends for a night of drinking. The hook is straightforward, repetitive and catchy, while Wiz keeps the verses equally simple, focusing on all the material items that might motivate your pursuit of wealth.
Check out the new song, and let us know what you think-- are you excited for O.N.I.F.C.?
"Diamonds all on my ring nigga
Gold watches, gold chain nigga
Hundred thou' on champagne nigga
Yeah my money insane nigga
Yeah I'm making it rain nigga
But I was just on the plane nigga
Buying gear, flying here
Fuck what you heard, it's my time of year"
