I think we can all agree that equally blunted rappers Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y are at their finest when rapping over breezy, sort of funky, sort of jazzy beats made for blowing smoke. And Big Sean? Well, he has been at his most entertaining lately when he spits on a track that sounds like a College Dropout leftover. So hearing him on this newly leaked Khalifa joint, “O.T.T.R.,” with Curren$y doesn’t work quite as well as it should have. Sean is just way too energized and A.D.H.D. here with his delivery, which might sound refreshing at first given his cohorts’ beyond-chill mentality. But he is out of place on “O.T.T.R.,” a track I’m hoping stems from an upcoming collaborative mixtape from Khalifa and Spitta. What? Is that too much to ask now that Khalifa has blown up? Fine.
