Watch Frank Ocean, Jack White, Miguel Perform At The Grammys

The Grammys! We spent altogether too much of last night watching and talking about them, and now it's time to pick through the refuse for the gems. Not too surprisingly, two of the best performances came from the recent wave of personal, psychedelic R&B singer-songwriters. Frank Ocean may have lost in every single major… More »

Wiz Khalifa – “Remember You” (Feat. The Weeknd) Video

If the Weeknd's Abel Tesfaye somehow becomes an anonymous R&B hook-singer dude, we'll all die just a little bit inside. So far, though, Tesfaye is two-for-two on his featured appearances, with both Drake's "Crew Love" and Wiz Khalifa's "Remember You" fitting beautifully with his cokesweat-soul body of work. Tesfaye doesn't show up in director More »

Download Wiz Khalifa Cabin Fever 2

A couple of years ago, Wiz Khalifa ascended to one of the most annoying forms of pop stardom imaginable. But he's still the guy who built a huge cult audience by touring relentlessly for years and mastering a particularly zoned-out and hook-happy form of weed-rap, and every once in a while, he reminds us of… More »

Curren$y – “Jet Life” (Feat. Wiz Khalifa, Big K.R.I.T.)

The crew behind the glorious "Glass House" team up again for "Jet Life," a new one from Curren$y's forthcoming The Stoned Immaculate. It's a track that rides out a very Pilot Talk texture, a hazy number built on a bed of noodling, stoner-friendly guitars, but screwed up enough that you can hear Big K.R.I.T.'… More »

Domo Genesis & Wiz Khalifa – “Ground Up”

Some collaborations just make too much sense. Odd Future member Domo Genesis and actual rap star Wiz Khalifa are both such stoners that they both released albums called Rolling Papers at roughly the same time. For a minute, there was even a rumor that Odd Future was furious about Wiz for the transgression, but no,… More »

T-Pain – “5 O’Clock” (Feat. Lily Allen & Wiz Khalifa) Video

The latest single from robo-R&B star T-Pain features a slightly unlikely sample: Lily Allen's It's Not Me, It's You track "Who'd Have Known." In fact, the song samples her so heavily that she gets a "featuring" credit on it. T-Pain practically spends the entire song singing along with her song, so it's only fair. More »

Berner – “Yoko” Video (Feat. Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa & Big K.R.I.T.)

It seems pretty safe to say that we all hate Chris Brown around here, so maybe it's lame to post anything associated with him in any way. But the man did make the rap song of the year, so we're going to have to contend with him for a while, like it or not. More »

Bonnaroo 2011 Photos: Saturday

Eminem closed Bonnaroo's 3rd day, which had kicked off with hip-hop heavy hitters Lil Wayne and Big Boi in the early hours and also hosted Wiz Khalifa in the late afternoon. Buffalo Springfield's headline set on the Which Stage overlapped with Shady's, making a joint cover of "He Got Game" an impossibility. Next… More »

Scenes From Roots Picnic 2011

The 4th Annual Roots Picnic went down in Philadelphia on Saturday. Grammy winner Esperanza Spalding performed, as well as Little Dragon, Ariel Pink, Dismemberment Plan, Man Man, and Beanie Sigel. Due to scheduling problems, Man Man ended up playing while the Roots and Nas were on, so, sadly, no photos of their hometown set. But… More »

Scenes From Coachella ’11: Kanye & More From Sunday

Sunday at Indio featured CSS, Delorean, HEALTH, Lightning Bolt, OFF!, the Strokes, a riot-free Death From Above 1979, MEN, Twin Shadow, Wiz Khalifa, and others, but it seems folks were largely focused on who Kanye may or may not bring on stage with him for his festival closing set. Justin Vernon came along for the… More »

The Worst Super Bowl Halftime Performances Since We Were Born

Once upon a time that thing that's pictured up there happened. It was not really one of the The Worst Super Bowl Halftime Performances. But it does mark a turning point after which Super Bowl Performances would be scrubbed within an inch of their life of anything resembling hormonal charge. (Unless we're talking about More »

Girl Talk/Max Tundra/Wiz Khalifa @ Williamsburg Waterfront, Brooklyn 8/23/09

Yesterday there was a free outdoor Girl Talk show in Williamsburg, so naturally it was a nice, quietly controlled time where everyone wore an appropriate amount of clothing. Just describing that show sounds like the punchline to some unimaginative hipster-hating zinger, but there it was, and it was real, and it was about as insane… More »
