"Maaaan Let's Get Medicated"

After a full lap around @RealWizKhalifa's new album O.N.I.F.C., I'll admit I wasn't blown away like I was when I first listened to Rolling Papers, but I also wasn't disappointed. There were at least two or three tracks on Rolling Papers that I liked more than the singles he released and I was able to find those same type of hidden gems on his new album, which is why I'm satisfied.

For me, it was a toss up between Medicated and Paperbond as my favorite hidden gem. The tie breaker ended up being the beat on the track below that I just couldn't get out of my head. It makes completely sense now that I noticed Danja was behind the boards and to be honest just seeing him on the track took it up a couple notches. Maybe I'm not speaking for the masses, but production credits are the first thing I look at when trying to negotiate an album for the first time. It's probably getting old hearing me preach my producer over artist rhetoric, but I'll hold firm on that until I find an artist (other than @Drake) that can churn out the type of no brainer quality that a producer like Danja does.

On a side note, it was interesting hearing @therealjuicyj rap over a non-strip club beat. It's been a while since I've heard him go in on a track that sounds softer than his usually music. He did his thing though, so no hatin' over here with respect to the legendary Triple Six member. In case you missed it, O.N.I.F.C just dropped this week and it's worth a listen...#ONIFC
