A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that in the single "Work Hard, Play Hard," Wiz Khalifa brags about swag and his money, and uses the "N" word many, many times, as well as a few other profane terms ("f--k," "ass," "s--t," "bitch"). There's not much redeeming value to this track; teens could do much better.

What's the story?
Is it any good?
Another rap song about making lots of money isn't original. Wiz Khalifa chooses to follow the pack of "ballers" and just rap about money and swag. He uses the "N" word too much, and annoyingly brags about "the bigger the bill, the harder you ball" and getting "your own bitch" and "your own smoke." Teens can find much better rap out there.
