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.

yeah, 2 Chainz is pretty much the typical main stream no talent garbage that old heads like me think ruined rap...

but for some reason I just can't help but to like the guy...

This one is good too...although ironic in that he isn't "different" at all

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.

there is a difference between art and entertainment. not all music has to be art to have success. They don't call it the art business, its the "entertainment" business for a reason.

Stuff like Juicy J and 2 Chainz should be taking at face value, goofy, funny and entertaining to listen to lightheartedly. It is far from art but nobody said it was in the first place

No. That's not what "art" is. Just because Wiz Khalifa's music isn't exactly the same as a rapper you would consider "talented" doesn't mean that he isn't an artist. Lyrical content is only one facet of music as a whole. You have to listen for more than just that one thing. Different musicians bring different things to the table. Everyone can't focus on deep lyrics and social awareness. If that were the case, there would be even less variety in rap music than there is now.

Some valid points here.

Number one reason i dont like wiz is that i dont like his voice, it sounds too "chill" for my taste.

Anyway these cats get bailed out by the producers that make the hot/party beats. The real art (music) is being made by someone else in most cases. The rappers are just a mere image that sells. Wiz is no different.

BTW is quite disturbing to be at a party and 15 year old virgins (females) to scream "taylor gang, taylor gang"
