Wiz Khalifa, O.N.I.F.C.

After Taylor Gang fans complained about the crossover-pop leanings of his major-label debut, Rolling Papers, Wiz Khalifa returned to the spacey, dorm-room odes to green money and green weed that put him on the map. As a result, O.N.I.F.C. doesn't have anything approaching the stadium-size singalong power of "Black and Yellow," but it's filled with smoky, sublime moments like "The Plan" and "Remember You."
