What Black Panthers founder Huey Newton has to do with Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa’s latest offering of the same name is unknown. It’s utterly useless to try and figure out the synaptic workings of both MCs’ THC-induced cabezas. Whatever their aim, the How Fly guys conjure up more intoxicating audio dope.
Using ’80s wonder-kinds Toto’s “Africa” as the song’s nostalgic, interesting sample, Spitta and Wiz swap bars about their usual daily grind: blazing buds while keeping plenty of women in tow. And even Wizzle’s recent arrest can’t deter his propensity for lines like, “fast livin’, good weed, bad women/rollin’ up joints with hash in them/true pothead, do everything last minute.” While collaborations between these two hemp enthusiasts have been lacking recently, maybe “Huey Newton” is a clear indication that the How Fly sequel is well on its way.
