I've had a ton of fun to his music over the years. I definitely like his mixtape stuff better like Flight School and Star Power but his new album is surprisingly good. He's got great taste in beats imo.

Just because you don't like Wiz Khalifa, does that mean that everyone else should stay away from him too? Clearly there are people who find an appeal to his music. Whether it be the subjects he discusses(smoking, drinking, partying, living a good life), or maybe just the beats he uses in his songs. Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it isn't there.


Also, you mentioned that his music is "pop music disguised as rap music." Is that supposed to make it bad or something?

I'm a fan of his music by the way. I can't name all his mixtapes and albums but he makes a lot of songs that I like to ride to.

He has a good ear for beats and knows how to make good party music. It really isn't that complicated.

The thing that bothers me in the whole situation is that:
-he cant rhyme
-has no lyrical content/message
-gets bailed out by beat maker
-makes awful lot of money, nonetheless he is pure garbage

Still is fun shit to watch. What a stupid modern society we are part of.

-He makes music to please his fans
-His fans are pleased


How are people stupid for liking a certain type of music? I think the real stupid people are the ones that care this much about what other people are listening to, and how many views a video has. The people that will go on a video of a popular just to write "This isn't real music, I only listen to real hip hop and undergound artist." Seeing that in the comment makes me laugh.

This is supposed to be art and IMO it should provide some kind of quality on artistic/moral side. All this "rappers" have right now is their image.

Wiz really helped rejuvenate his career (at least as far as staying famous goes).

Not everything has to be art tho. Shit like Die Hard 57 and The Expendables get made for pure entertainment just like party music gets made. Not all music needs to be judged at such a high standard that it has to contribute some artistic/moral quality.

Shit like popular dramas and music have existed forever in human society but people will always bitch about it.
