Whiz Khalifa is a rapper that likes to keep his music rooted in what society expects. For those who aren't aware, the stereotypical hip-hop star raps about everything a “normal” guy in his position would: getting laid, smoking weed, “Black and Yellow,” partying, how cool they are and smoking weed. These are the usual topics of discussion in their poetic verses, and I’m not being harsh on them either. Their songs really are about about those subjects, and it's so prevalent actually, over at Consequence of Sound, they deemed the new collaboration between Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, and Curren$y “Team Ganja.” Which is a fitting name for a group that doesn't seem to mind the social assumptions about their fellow artists. Check out four new songs by this collaborative group that doing nothing to break the mold:
Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, and Curren$y “Weed Brownies”
Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, and Curren$y “Dot Dot Dot”
Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, and Curren$y “O.T.T.R. (Off To The Races”)
Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, and Curren$y “Flowers”
Alright, the songs aren’t that bad. “Dot Dot Dot” utilizes 1950’s style soft jazz to its advantage and so does “Flowers,” so I’m a bit more amicable towards these track than the others. Whiz Khalifia is known for the repetitive song “Black and Yellow” which has been heard all over college radio stations, and their subsequent college parties, so this rapper is very well popular among folks my age. Big Sean and Curren$y are the lesser known of this collaboration, but with Khalifia heading the group I wouldn't be so surprised to see these guys performing more fluently on the festival circuits and radio stations.
What do you think of this collaboration? Is it worth it to throw out all of our expectations of rappers to enjoy music about smoking pot? I’m cool with that.
