Following the enormous success of 2011's Rolling Papers, Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa follows up with the highly anticipated O.N.I.F.C., his fourth album and second for Atlantic, not including scads of random mixtapes released along the way. Khalifa works with a wide array of producers on the album, again enlisting the Stargate production team -- who helped craft his ubiquitous breakout single, "Black and Yellow" -- for work on O.N.I.F.C.'s first single, "Work Hard Play Hard," co-produced by Benny Blanco. Other producers on the album include Pharrell, will.i.am, and Deadmau5, and cameo appearances are made by the Weekend, Juicy J., Curren$y, 50 Cent, 2 Chainz, and many others. In interviews, Khalifa divulged that the album's title stands for "Only Nigga in First Class," though on clean/censored versions, the acronym will stand for "One Night in First Class."
