Our 50 Favorite Wiz Khalifa Songs

In the music world, influence manifests itself in many different ways. Whether it be sonically — changing the sounds that artists use and often creating some sort of new trend and/or subgenre in the process — or aesthetically — changing the “cool” styles in music and the lifestyles that artists speak about in their songs — influence can arrive packaged as a quick viral moment or a lasting flame, both of which hold value in their own rights.  Pittsburgh’s own, the Taylor Gang representative himself, Wiz Khalifa, is one of the rare talents who comes around and entirely shifts the culture in both of the aforementioned ways. Especially when he first came out, Wiz’s lanky, tattooed build and effortlessly cool stoner lifestyle made him a genuinely alluring artist, and while his personal style (snapbacks, the dyed patch of hair, etc.) was worthy of mention, the music was there to back it all up. Simply put, Wiz’s style, both on the mic and off, quickly set a standard for creatives and other artists to congregate toward, marking him as one of music’s most underrated culture-shifters of the last decade or so. Even further, beyond the influence that Wiz has had on a …

LL Presents: The Rob Hicks Q&A

Rob Hicks is a rapper who hails from Milwaukee who I just recently came across, which isn’t too outrageous considering he only has two songs on his soundcloud, the oldest being from two months ago. One thing that he does very well is that he utilizes his voice as almost an instrument, he ranges it from high to low & soft to aggressive in what seems like a bat of an eye. Take a few minutes out of your time to learn something about him below, then make sure you give him a follow here!   EM: To start off, give a brief introduction of yourself to our readers who may not be familiar with you. RH: My name is Robert Hicks , but most people know me as Rob Hicks. I’m a recording artist out of Racine, WI . I pretty much have been exposed to music my entire life.

That’s pretty much it , I don’t really have a life, I just focus on my craft. — EM: When did you first …
