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.
