Default WTF, how is Wiz Khalifa so popular?

I hadn't really listened to the dude since "History in the making" and i thought he was just ok back then. Well after watching him at last year's cochella, i decided that to check him out more on youtube. Song after song was nothing but him talking about how much money he has and his success.

I guess i was expecting something half unique, sort of how Kid Cudi has his own thing, and while i'm not his biggest fan, i can see the appeal (and Crookers mix of Day and Night is dope), but Wiz is damn near garbage. Its Lil Wayne type of mediocre all over again.

Because he's likable and makes weed/party music that a lot of teenagers listen to? I personally hate the guys music but he seems like a well rounded dude and I can definitely see why he's famous.

Better than lil, for sure.
I kind of like some songs of his. Fly solo and homicide are quite good.

I love marijuana, and none of his songs are what i would want to hear while high. Kid Cudi is good for smoking, Wiz may be marketed as weed tunes, but its anything but. In a lot of songs he just talks about the basic pop rap 101 shit of money, cars, and girls.

Nothing unique about rapping about cars, girls, and money. You're the last person on here to educate anyone on rap music. Don't you like 2 Chainz and Asap Rocky?

So your personal preference means something? Millions of people disagree, which is why he's famous. You're 1 person and you say you don't enjoy his music while high as if that validates some sort of point you're trying to get across? Think before you post son.

Cars, money, hoes. Its pop music disguised as rap music, when its anything but. I'm just surprised people are still eating up the same message over and over. People want to say he's popular because weed is popuiar, and i'm saying nothing about his popularity correlates to weed. Think before you tell someone else to do so. I'm not mindlessly bashing him; i said i was curious what he sounded like today, and all the songs were money, cars, hoes, which surprised me because so many have talked about him like he was more than a pop artist.

I see many even compare the dude to Snoop Dogg. He couldn't hold a candle to current Snoop, let alone Snoop back in the day.

@Al Thornton. Wiz is what the back packers are listening to, that and everything else you promote . They aren't listening to anyone not talking about money and ballin.

What don't you get? How a guy can get famous with the assistance of technology? We live in an age where someone like Rebecca Black can get famous. Why is it so hard to believe that a dude who pushed his luck and made likeable music became famous? come on. Some of you just don't have any sort of brain power.

You asked why he was so popular and it's easy to see why he is. And you answered your own question. It is pop disguised as rap. pop is short for popular. Is it registering with you yet or do I need to explain further?
