O.N.I.F.C. Music Poster Image


Smooth grooves, but extreme substance use, sex, materialism.

What parents need to know

Positive messages

The irresponsible and materialistic messages threaded throughout this album are negative.

Positive role models

Just about every act in these songs is something a positive role model wouldn't do.

Not applicable

Lots of sexual situations, with talk of having different partners every night.


Tons of profanity, from "f–-k" to the "N" word.


Not too many specific product names, but plenty of lines about having tons of money and material things.

Drinking, drugs, & smoking

An abundance of references to getting extremely drunk and smoking a lot of pot.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that O.N.I.F.C. (which stands for "Only a N––-a in First Class") is definitely not for kids, tweens, and younger teens. It contains a mountain of explicit language ("f–-k," "s–-t," the "N" word), references to being very drunk and high, graphic sexual descriptions, and numerous mentions of money and material goods.

What's the story?

Notoriously risque rapper Wiz Khalifa is back with O.N.I.F.C., his second full-length album. Not one to mess with success, Khalifa revisits the same themes that filled his first album, Rolling Papers: lots of sex, substances, and money. He gets help from a host of guest artists, including 2 Chainz, Akon, Pharrell, and his partner, Amber Rose.

Is it any good?


While the smooth, mellow groove of this album is an unfortunate nod to Khalifa's affection for substances, it also makes for an overall nice sound. Highlights include tracks with vocal powerhouse guest stars Pharrell and Akon, who make for a great contrast with Khalifa's rap stylings.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about whether it's fair that Wiz Khalifa has succeeded in building a career around producing music that reflects negative behaviors. Why do you think he is so popular?

  • Should artists be legally allowed to sell music that embraces illegal activities, like drunk driving and smoking pot? Why or why not?

  • Who is the audience for this album? If it's not teens, does Khalifa have any responsibility to be a role model?

C'mon, It's Wiz Khalifa

Honestly I just have one thing to say: If you listen to Wiz Khalifa or have even heard of him in the media, it's a well-known fact that he is a very avid user of Weed and mentions it throughout his songs. So if you're easily offended or against drug use, just don't listen to him. And he's a rapper, so of course there's going to be strong language dropped throughout the album. Don't like it, don't listen to it.
