Unoriginal pop-rap track is all about money, guns, cars.

A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this music.

Positive Messages

Living life in the moment and only having "one shot" aren't necessarily negative goals, but lines like "money's the motivation, money's the conversation" bring the song back to action-movie radio-rap reality.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Khalifa's assertion that "I am whatever I am, only God can judge me" is a familiar refrain in hip-hop, but the ruthless individualism and materialism promoted by both rappers isn't exactly inspiring or anything to look up to.


While there aren't any detailed descriptions of violence in the lyrics, there are references to "gunshots in the dark," "ridin with the plug," "got big guns we graduated from knives," and "feelin like a killer inside."  


The sometimes questionable Wiz and 2 Chainz keep the misogyny to a minimum, playfully but crudely dropping phrases like "my new broad, that's a fine chick" and "I look better on your girl than her outfit."


Nothing that would require censorship.


As usual, 2 Chainz focuses a good deal of his lyrical content on the apparently robust state of his finances, declaring "we bout cash;" Wiz brags about a "new car" and "money rolls."

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this hit single from the Fast & Furious 6 movie soundtrack doesn't have bad language or drug references, but is full of references to money, guns, and crashing fast cars. Similar in tone to the film franchise, "We Own It" is an anthem of self-promotion and reckless greed. There are also a couple of sexual references, such as "I look better on your girl than her outfit."

Great Song

It should be for younger kids.

What's the story?

Stoner-rap impresario-turned-mainstream-mainstay Wiz Khalifa teams up with rapper 2 Chainz on "WE OWN THIS (FAST & FURIOUS)" from the soundtrack of the sixth entry in the Fast & Furious movie franchise. Uniting two of the most notable presences in contemporary radio rap, the track is about living in the moment and doing whatever it takes to succeed in the face of fear and danger.

Is it any good?

The production is boring but energetic, filled with tense orchestral strings that give the track a "get pumped" sort of feel. Both of these superstars are beginning to wear out their welcome, as their formulaic and pandering approach comes off as inauthentic. Khalifa increasingly depends on Auto-Tune hooks and repetitive wordplay, lacking the cleverness and intimacy of some of his earlier work. 2 Chainz is goofy and simplistic, but at least he seems to be developing a unique style. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about soundtracks. Mainstream rap and rock artists have contributed songs to movie soundtracks for decades. How can pop music used in action films help to set the tone? Can it ever detract from the story?

  • Why do you think established, major label stars like Wiz Khalifa and 2 Chainz would use a soundtrack to gain exposure?

  • Are references to guns and money necessary to the craft of hip-hop? Why do these images seem to resonate so strongly with listeners?
