Wiz Khalifa Previews ‘O.N.I.F.C’ Album, Says Juicy J ‘Heavily Involved’

Wiz Khalifa has already made a name for himself as a first class rapper, and he hasn’t even dropped his second album yet. Wiz teased details from the record for MTV’s Hip-Hop Preview Week, and said that this record focuses on being the best he can possibly be.

“I just really wanted it to be the best rap album possible. Not with a bunch of like less obvious songs in your face. But just with stuff that makes sense. It’s definitely the next level in the best of the best that it could be at this point for sure,” the “Black and Yellow” creator said.

Khalifa also voiced his desire to build on his previous album and take things to the next level: “I had to change up things, I had to turn it up. The album, the artwork is just another step in the turning up.”

Wiz has been collaborating with a variety of artists, but he specifically cites Juicy J as an influence on his upcoming record.

“Juicy J was heavily involved this time too, which is a little bit different, because now I got like that veteran stamp,” Khalifa said.

He promised that this album will be highly reflective of his personal state right now. “I get pretty personal on here, it’s like a reflection of me and where I’m at right now. So I feel like I did that the best way without getting too preachy or going too deep to a point where I lost anybody.”

The album, O.N.I.F.C, which stands for “Only N—- in First Class,” debuts Aug. 28 on Atlantic Records.
