    Wiz Khalifa has dropped “Bammer,” a take on ’90s rap collective RBL Posse’s 1992 song, “Don’t Give Me No Bammer.”

    The Mustard-produced song kicks off with the familiar chorus, albeit with slight tweaks by Wiz. “Don’t give me no bammer weed / We don’t smoke that shit, it’s TGOD,” the rapper spits, in reference to his record label Taylor Gang. The song also features a sample of Marvin Gaye’s “Intro Theme,” from the icon’s 1977 Live at the London Palladium record.

    According to RBL Posse’s Black C, Khalifa reached out for the group’s blessing before dropping the song. “I appreciate [Khalifa] remixing one of our classics,” Black C wrote on Instagram. “I also give him credit for taking the necessary steps to reach out to me and get my blessing. I like his version of ‘Bammer.’”

    “Don’t Give Me No Bammer” is the latest old-school song that Khalifa put his own spin on. Last month, the rapper dropped It’s Only Weed Bro, a seven-track mixtape featuring samples from several iconic hip hop tracks.
