Looking at the career paths of both cannabis champions, what How Fly meant to Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa constitutes it as a modern day classic. Spitta’s solidified himself one of rap’s most beloved artists while Khalifa became a legitimate superstar. And after teasing fans for years, it appears the two have another wake and bake project on the horizon.
In an interview with VladTV, Spit Vicious confirmed he and his brother in bongs have several songs recorded for a future release. “You’ll hear a collection of music from me and the homie when it’s necessary, but it’s done. We just chilling. I’m still listening to dude’s verses and Isht still. We just chilling. We’ll put it out in a minute,” said Curren$y.
Needless to say, the tape – which will not be called How Fly 2 – sparks interests as well as blunts because of their track record. Wiz’s mainstream efforts have left diehards yearning for more; meanwhile the on-wax chemistry with Curren$y hasn’t seemed to have lost a step if last year’s collection of tracks with Big Sean are any indication. No major label pressure to cater records to certain demographics means the new age Cheech and Chong can feed off one another helping to create and advance the organic sound they created several calendars ago. Maybe not a huge concern at all, but it also allows Curren$y to spread his chronic commentary to fans who’ve latched on to Wiz once he began dominating radio waves. Wiz, on the other hand, can use this project as an appropriate follow-up to Taylor Allderdice while staying true to his word and pushing Rolling Papers further down the totem pole. Meanwhile, weed heads and lovers of riding music can rejoice. A win-win for all parties involved, or at least it seems.
Feeling about as confident as one can about a project they haven’t heard the first second of, only two real questions stand. When’s the release date? And what’s the title? Instead of throwing out suggestions, it’s probably best to let Wiz and Spitta get high as telephone wires and decide. I wouldn’t be made at calling it The Smoking Section though.
Bonus: Until then, The Head Taylor In Charge released the video for Work Hard, Play Hard,” which just happens to be the motto for a 25-or-something-year-old with money growing like grass, weed handed to him like Christmas gift and a fiancé the world loves to criticize.
