    On April 14, Wiz Khalifa took over the Internet. Unfamiliar Twitter users scratched their noggins upon seeing the seemingly esoteric phrase "Kush & OJ" listed in their trending topic sidebar. Even Google fell victim to the Pittsburgh rapper's rabid demand—all for a mixtape. The project was more than unwarranted hype, though. Dipping into unconventional wells of inspiration, the Taylor gang leader swiped Demi Lovato's "Our Time Is Here" from Disney's Camp Rock soundtrack for the psychedelic anthem "We're Done"; elsewhere Frou Frou’s “Let Go” is, uh, lifted, for "In The Cut." He flexes his vocals here and there ("Up") and even tries his hand at reggae ("Still Blazin"). Can we get much higher? - Vibe.com
