Wiz Khalifa kicked off his 2020 by releasing It’s Only Weed Bro, a 7-track EP that found the veteran rapper revisiting some of hip-hop’s most cypher-able instrumentals like Mobb Deep’s “Survival of the Fittest”, JAY-Z and Memphis Bleek’s “Dear Summer”, and DJ Premier and Common’s “The 6th Sense.” It was a quick-hitting 17-minute project that still left plenty to be unpacked thanks to Khalifa’s signature stoney bars and a beat selection that took things back to the mid-2000’s peak mixtape era.

Now Wiz has teamed up with Mustard for “Bammer,” a jazz-infused cut that nods at RBL Posse’s iconic “Don’t Give Me No Bammer Weed” from the San Francisco, California crew’s 1992 project A Lesson To Be Learned. Khalifa is equally as smooth here thanks to the sample of Marvin Gaye’s “Intro Theme” used on loop throughout while he delivers his weed smoking preference in a simple yet effective release. The track follows his music video for “Real Rappers Rap”, another soul-sampled ballad by frequent collaborator Big Jerm.

Listen to the new single below and in more music news, revisit every sample used on Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake.
