When he's not making mega-hits of his own, like "Black and Yellow" or "We Dem Boyz," Wiz Khalifa has a way of inserting himself into the musical narrative of a rising star or a hot artist—regardless of the song's geographical origins and its style or content (he's probably going to sing-song rap about weed, anyways). Here's six songs the rapper's flexed on so far this year.
2) Dej Loaf, "Try Me" ft. Wiz Khalifa
Last month, he beat Drake to the punch and got the first big touch on Dej Loaf's "Try Me." His mix helped propel the young Detroit rapper's song into the mainstream's orbit with just a brief touch. And since, everyone from The Lox to Lil Durk to Lil Mama to E-40 have given it a spin of their own.
3) Wiz Khalifa, "Maan! (Weedmix)"
Wiz spun ScHoolboy Q's lead Oxymoron single "Man Of The Year" into "Maan! (Weedmix)" into a kicked-back, sing-songy smoker's anthem called "Maan! (Weedmix)."
