Wiz teams up with the Dipset leader, Cam’ron, for his latest song, “The Bluff.”
If nothing else, we can tell that Wiz Khalifa is a gracious dude. He’s got a new album in the works (O.N.I.F.C. due on Dec. 4), a bunch of features on that album, like The Weeknd and 2 Chainz, and a baby on the way with Amber Rose (that seriously HAS to be due soon). Yet even with all this going on, Wiz still seems very thankful for everything he has (pretty relevant this week, wouldn’t you agree?). On the latest track to surface from his forthcoming album, “The Bluff,” featuring Cam’ron, Wiz sings gratefully “I got so much,” but then raps about how he’s still the same guy. We knew you wouldn’t switch it up and go all “unapproachable superstar” on us.

Over a woozy, electro-inspired beat, Wiz rhymes about how he won’t leave his old life behind. “Still the same n****/ Still walkin’ all up on your airplane with all my gang members.” There’s something to be said about sticking with old friends, even ones with criminal records. Later, Cam’ron echoes this sentiment, remarking that he’s still the same dude he always was: “I’m Killa, he Wiz/ but all my checks say Cameron,” but he’s also quick to say: “Paparazzi out babygirl, no playin’ please/ Now point that camera at my pockets cause they sayin ‘Cheese!’” Now, just because these dudes have bank accounts that look like phone numbers doesn’t mean they have to change who they are — they can be down to Earth, too! And from the looks of it, Wiz is SUPER thankful for all he has. We like a little humility in our stars sometimes, y’know, in between all of the racks on racks on racks.
