#24. Wiz Khalifa - O.N.I.F.C.

Label: Rostrum/Atlantic
Release Date: Fall
Likelihood Of Release: 80%

By the time Wiz Khalifa's major label debut Rolling Papers dropped in 2011, his knack for writing hooks and creating a melody—whether by rapping, singing, a combination of the two—had made him a star. Since then, he's learned how to incorporate all of those strengths, showcasing them on multiple songs with Curren$y and Big Sean and Snoop Dogg. As Wiz keeps building with his in-house producers—Pittsburgh's own ID Labs—he continues growing as a writer. We expect fans who were disappointed by Wiz's pop-friendly approach on Rolling Papers to jump back on board as he shows off his versatility on O.N.I.F.C..
