Wiz Khalifa’s sophomore album O.N.I.F.C. will have to wait at the gate a little longer. The Taylor Gang captain has announced a new departure date for the project, which will now touch down in September.
O.N.I.F.C., an acronym for Only Ni**a in First Class, will include production from Pharrell, Jim Jonsin, Pop Wansel, Sledgren, Cardo, Germ, and more when it arrives on September 18. It was previously slated for an August 28 release.
Fuse caught up with Wiz backstage at his “Under the Influence of Music” tour. “It’s really the highest level of what people expect from me,” he said of the follow-up to his major-label debut Rolling Papers. “People know me for a lot of different things, they know me for making big hooks, they know me for picking dope ass beats, they know me for spittin’. This album is really gonna portray all of that in the best way possible. If you never heard rap before in your life and you listen to O.N.I.F.C., you’re gonna be like, ‘I’m a fan of that.'”
He and Curren$y are also working on Live in Concert, a new mixtape to commemorate the three-year anniversary of their collaborative project How Fly, due August 9.
A Taylor Gang compilation featuring LoLa Monroe, Juicy J, and Chevy Woods will follow around October.
