Kush & OJ is Wiz Khalifa's eighth independently produced mixtape. The subject matter includes stories about partying, pretty women, and smoking marijuana; Khalifa stated to MTV's Mixtape Daily that he titled the release Kush and Orange Juice because "it's perfect for wake-and-bake". The cover art of the mixtape is an homage to singer David Ruffin's album Gentleman Ruffin.
On the song "The Kid Frankie", Khalifa raps over the English R&B band Loose Ends' No. 1 hit single, "Hangin' on a String". Khalifa stated that the song was inspired by the character Frankie from the film The Business (2005), who listens to Loose Ends while traveling around Spain. The song "Never Been" samples "Schala's Theme" from the soundtrack to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System role-playing game Chrono Trigger, composed by Yasunori Mitsuda. The song "Up" samples Tevin Campbell's "Could it Be". "In the Cut" samples "Let Go" by Frou Frou from the end credits of the film Garden State, the song "We're Done" samples the single "Our Time Is Here" by Demi Lovato from the Disney soundtrack Camp Rock.
