Back in November, I¬†reported¬†that Wiz Khalifa¬†sophomore¬†album is entitled O.N.I.F.C.¬†Many of us, including myself wanted to know the meaning behind the title.¬†Khalifa revealed what the acronym stands for during an interview on Shade 45‚Äôs Sway in the Morning radio show (via¬†MTV News) and¬†the meaning behind¬†O.N.I.F.C. is¬†Only N***a In First Class.¬†The title was inspired by Prodigy of Mobb Deep 2000 debut solo album Head N***a in Charge. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs inspired by Prodigy‚Äôs¬†H.N.I.C.,‚ÄĚ said Khalifa. ‚ÄúWhen he dropped that, I felt like that sounded so strong,‚ÄĚ added Khalifa.

As we all know by now, racism is still alive and out in the open. It used to be conceal but not anymore. On the disc, Khalifa also tackles some issues of racism he‚Äôs encountered while traveling through airports. ‚ÄúI was just talking about me being a young rich dude and being black,‚ÄĚ he explained. ‚ÄúIt looks crazy to them when I walk up to them and show them my ticket or I‚Äôm going in priority seating, They‚Äôre like, ‚ÄėYou‚Äôre sure?‚Äô‚ÄĚ So far, Khalifa¬†has been in the studio with Pharrell, Chris Brown, and Adam Levine.¬†This will be the follow-up to Khalifa‚Äôs debut LP¬†Rolling Papers, which¬†debuted at #2 on the US¬†Billboard¬†200¬†chart, with first-week sales of 197,000 copies. As of now, the disc has sold over 600,000 copies worldwide.

Khalifa will soon release a new mixtape called Taylor Allderdice which is in reference to the high school he attended in his hometown Pittsburgh.
