  • Wiz Khalifa And Atlanticl Found 'Happy Medium' With O.N.I.F.C.
    September 18, 2012

    Everything is cool between Wiz Khalifa and Atlantic Records. That’s not the only good news, despite a few snags, O.N.I.F.C. will still be out later this year.

    In the cover story for the upcoming October/November issue of Complex magazine, Wiz said that Atlantic wanted more singles on his Rolling Papers follow-up, but he intends to do O.N.I.F.C. exactly how he wants. MTV News caught up with the Taylor Gang captain last Saturday before his Heineken Red Star Access show and got a little clarification.

    "There was always a happy medium," Wiz told us. "It's just like I said, you gotta express those views and that's where I said I was at, at that point with me more or less having to express my views and make those stick."

    Wiz insisted that there is no problem between him and the powerhouse label. "It's nobody's problem or anything like that. That's just where we was at, at the time," he said.

    As far as O.N.I.F.C. goes, Wiz promised it will come before the end of the year after missing its initial August 28 date and its September 18 make-up date. "The album is completely done and that's what it was, just getting it all the way finished," Khalifa said before comparing it to last year's Rolling Papers. "You can just expect it to be more musical. All the elements that you're used to getting from a quote-unquote 'Wiz project,' you're gonna get every last one of those elements, whereas I feel like the first album lacked some of those elements."
