Wiz Khalifa owes a lot to Snoop's heavy-lidded flow, so consider this soundtrack a debt repaid. The pair work a middle ground between the elder's G-funk and the younger man's woozy pop rap, but where Wiz delivers green/baked metaphors with an arriviste arrogance, Snoop is all about the Buddha (and sometimes also the ho's): "No sticks, no seeds/ Just Al Green," he raps. It's a sweet message: All you need is blunts.

"It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
