Wiz Khalifa uses his Twitter to debut the cover art for his much anticipated O.N.I.F.C. and the end product is conversation-worthy mostly due to his sartorial choices. The deadpan stare on Wiz’s face best matches the “are you shittin’ me?” verbal reaction some would initially have. Others are calling the pinstripes and PETA fur sheer brilliance, indicative of 24-year-old rapper’s continued metamorphosis to rockstar status.
While many are quick to make a rash judgment based on outward appearances, we’ll take the “glass half full” approach: Rolling Papers looked like a Wiz album but even he admitted it didn’t live up to standard. Maybe new look Wiz will sound like the “old Wiz” listeners tend to clamor for. Maybe?
Either way, “New Clothes” is now more than just a song title for the head of the Taylor Gang.
