I’ve been keeping tabs on Wiz Khalifa ever since I heard his breakout track “Say Yeah” back in spring 2008. “Say Yeah” sampled Alice DJ’s “Better Off Alone” which copped him a bit of stick from some people (not me, I loved it). However, since then, it has become all the rage for rappers to sample well known 90’s Europop hits. Although that sound may be a little tiring to hear now, Wiz was right at the forefront of that wave when it was still fresh.
Since then he has gone from strength to strength, consistently producing high quality mixtapes. “This Plane” is Wiz’s latest single and I’m hoping it does really well, ‘cos I’m looking forward to hearing plenty more from him.
