Rise Above ft. Tuki Carter, Amber Rose & Pharrell Williams (Produced By Pharrell Williams)

This is another smoothed out record that has a vintage Neptunes sound. Wiz doesn’t really overpower himself on this song, as he lets his melodic voice and excellent production do the heavy lifting on this record. It almost sounds like something you’d hear Jay-Z on The Black Album.  “I’m pretty sure he got a contact high when he made this beat,” Wiz said about Pharrell. “These songs, I’m not really trying to use the verses to really just rap your a** off. It’s about the music as I always say. It just makes sense if you like music, or you like getting stoned, or you like both.”
