Deal Or No Deal
Label: Rostrum Records
If Deal or No Deal is to be believed, then Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa has a life that's strictly "Red Carpet (Like a Movie)." He brags and boasts with the charm of a car salesman, and his roving eye is always on the lookout for ladies who have "Chewy" skills. Deal or No Deal is lightweight stuff, but Wiz has an uncanny ear for melody that makes it sound effortlessly listenable. He hungers for "Moola and the Guap" and compares sex to a rap session on "Studio Lovin'," all over infectious club beats that sound positively ambient.
