When faced with a sample of Jon B‘s 2001 song “Calling on You,” Drake felt inspired to rap about his “love life” as portrayed in the tabloids: “We look like we’re in love, but only on camera.” But with his sophomore album O.N.I.F.C. out December 4, Wiz Khalifa logically tackles the same, Noah ’40′ Shebib-produced sample with a few reminders of his major-label ascent.

“I got rich when I was young, now folks say that I’m famous,” the Taylor Gang leader raps in his “Runways” freestyle. He also boasts of eating breakfast on a plane, while its accompanying music video shows him signing autographs, relaxing on a tour bus and, as expected, smoking wherever he goes. Khalifa raps nothing about his love life, probably because his recent XXL cover said all that needed to be said.
