Produced by his longtime collaborator Sledgren, “Bad Influence” is Wiz at his absolute smoothest. Bouncy drums and a faint, whistling siren provide the backdrop for two hard-hitting verses and a catchy-as-hell hook about finding that special someone to roll with. “I’m tryna leave with the baddest one in here,” Wiz sings on the chorus, “Top down / Riding around through the city blowing loud."
The only thing cooler than the song itself may be its accompanying artwork, which shows a flawlessly manicured hand passing off a joint to (presumably) Wiz himself. Too slick.
