Wiz Khalifa Remixes Missy Elliott’s ‘The Rain’

If history tells us anything, it’s that Wiz Khalifa‘s upcoming mixtape, ’28 Grams,’ is about to be a whole lot better than 2012′s ‘O.N.I.F.C.’ Whether you’re comparing ‘Kush & Orange Juice’ to his ‘Rolling Papers’ debut or ‘Taylor Allderdice’ to his aforementioned sophomore album, Wiz’s free projects are consistently more impressive — and more Wiz Khalifa — than those he releases through the major label system.

The latest dose of dopeness from ’28 Grams’ suggests so, too. For ‘The Rain,’ the Taylor Gang general borrows Missy Elliott’s 1997 hit single of the same name and gives it that ‘weedmix’ treatment. Hitting his stride over Timbaland’s hypnotic bounce, Wiz lets us know that he “can’t stand fake n—-s” while sprinkling in rhymes about that stoner lifestyle (duh).

“These n—-s fans, they just sitting / Talk about plans they ain’t been in / Even rock brands they don’t fit in / Ain’t got to go to France, spend a hundred bands / Gotta understand, damn, I can’t stand fake n—-s!” he raps in his distinctively magnetic flow.

No word on when ’28 Grams’ will be dropping, but Wizzy has spent the last few days on Twitter teasing a sudden release, so keep your eyes peeled (if they’re not too low, that is).
