Wiz Khalifa Sings Praise Of FontShop Colours

I heard this on the radio when driving Randall and Nona to school this morning. Wiz Khalifa’s Black And Yellow is the type of wack commercial rap music that I personally don’t really care for, but really, how could I not post this? Enjoy (sort of). ; )

Just wanted to point out that the black and yellow cover artwork is entirely typographic, with the artist’s name set in Alejandro Paul’s bodacious Candy Script.

And for the slightly more sophisticated amongst us – Black And Gold, the beautifully mellow electro track by Sam Sparro.

  2. “Wack commercial rap music”? You don’t know what you’re talking about. Wiz’s career is neither here nor there in terms of fonts but he started as an underground rapper who just happened to score with this one, over-played song. The Sam Sparro song is cool, but to imply that it’s “more sophisticated” than rap is ridiculous and offensive.

  3. Oh, I am terribly sorry. I was foolishly thinking I was entitled to my own personal opinion and taste in music.

    And you misread the “more sophisticated” bit – that was a silly pun, referring to black and “gold” instead of black and “yellow”. That didn’t have anything to with the quality of the music.
