Video: Wiz Khalifa – Never Been

Five years ago today Wiz Khalifa released Kush & Orange Juice. Its worth mentioning because the mixtape received critical acclaim in 2010 and it helped thrust Wiz into the mainstream. Obviously it wouldn’t be until Black & Yellow that he would become a household name, but it was Kush & OJ, that put him in that position. I had the mixtape on repeat throughout the summer and although I wasn’t a smoker I could vibe to the smooth beats and catchy lyrics. Wiz has never been a lyricist, but on this tape he knew how to stick to his expertise and keep it interesting. Never Been is just one of the great tracks on the project, that deserves a quick revisit.
