Wiz Khalifa Shows Off on ‘Big Screen’
"Who is this Wiz Khalifa?" A lot of football fans were asking that question while witnessing his Steelers-tribute performance of 'Black & Yellow' during yesterday's AFC title game against the New York Jets. Well, first off, Wiz is a master of viral marketing. To complement his performance, he released a brand new single, titled 'Big Screen,' that delved into his life story and gave his new fans a quick, 'Cliff Notes' version of his career, musical motifs and current lifestyle.
"Got me drinking out the bottle," the nasally MC intones. "Living for today, thinking about tomorrow/ N----s fake, I can see it with my eyes closed/ In desperate need of a leader so they follow... I never sleep, but I got big dreams/ A little n----, I do big things."
Using Auto-Tune to keep his voice more in tune with radio demands, Khalifa raps over a piano-heavy beat with enough atmospherics to please fans of his popular mixtape 'Kush & Orange Juice.'
This is the second recent Wiz single to hit the Internet and test the waters. His last one was a collaboration with Snoop Dogg entitled 'That Good.' All of these tracks are test runs for Wiz's debut album for Atlantic Records, which is set to drop in March as of press time. He will also be collaborating on a movie and soundtrack with Snoop Dogg entitled 'High School.'
