Album Cover: Wiz Khalifa – ‘O.N.I.F.C.’

O.N.I.F.C.

Wiz Khalifa takes the cover art for his sophomore album to another level. The tatted Taylor rocks a snow leopard coat and tight red, white, and blue pants as he reclines shirtless in a chair. 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’s really the highest level of what people expect from me,” he told Fuse 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.’”

The cover has already earned praise from Wiz’ peers including Tyler, the Creator. “That Album Cover IS Epic As F**k,” tweeted the Odd Future frontman. “THIS NI**A THINK HE CRUELA DEVILL HAHAHAHAHA O F**K.”

What do you think of Wiz’ fur-ocious cover art? Sound off below.

    @Mike, I know right these mofos hating on Wiz hard. We are in a day and era where thinking outside the box is NORMAL now. What’s funny is I remember when Busta Rhymes had that whole thing going on in the 90s but it was more of a funk meets hip hop swag he used to wear the high heeled boots with the tight leather pants and leather vest and his long dreads. I support Wiz’s movement and how can these same fans who gloat about Lil Wayne and his jeggings hate on Wiz’s Jimi Hendrix influenced style? Quite hypocritical.

    He looks like he was forced to take the picture in that outfit and that is what makes this funny. However, this could possibly become an iconic cover. It makes you talk.

    I’m not too sure what or who inspired this outfit, but I’m definitely not feeling it! Wiz Khalifa goes leopard and patriotic on his O.N.I.F.C. (Only N***a In First Class) cover. He sure did take album covers to another level. The album will include production from Pharrell, Jim Jonsin, Pop Wansel, Sledgren, Cardo, Germ, and more.

    The point is, its got everyone talking about it. Got everyone in here’s attention. So when it does drop, you’ll know who it is. Sure beats having a Phantom, some broads in bikinis and shiny things on the cover…coz thats so original.
