O.N.I.F.C

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap; Lead Performer: Wiz Khalifa; Music Label: Atlantic

Having elbowed his way into the Hot 100 VIP room — and a million Steelers fans’ hearts — with 2010’s inescapable ”Black and Yellow,” the pride of Pittsburgh largely backs away from easy access on his second album. Though O.N.I.F.C. scrimps on pop hooks, Wiz’s bleary-eyed charisma elevates both radio bait (”Got Everything”) and trippy shape-shifters (”No Limit”). His singular style tends to derail the guest spots — which is okay, because Wiz’s most potent collaborator is clearly a plant-shaped lady named Mary. B+
