Wiz Khalifa may be making headlines (and quite the material for punchlines) for his recently-unveiled and, erm, eccentric artwork for his upcoming O.N.I.F.C. album, the Taylor Gang captain is in the news again, specifically for his joint mixtape with Curren$y, Live In Concert.
A day prior to its originally scheduled release tomorrow (August 9th), the reefer-friendly rappers have been forced to delay the projects’s release due to issues with sample clearances, and to ultimately avoid lawsuits in the long run.
Both emcees offered an explanation via a series of tweets, which you can read in full below. A new release date hasn’t been announced, but SoulCulture will update you when the details become available.
We wldnt feel comfortable droppin #LiveInConcert until we get the samples cleared.with how these suits keep poppin up.. Mixtapes ain’t safe. Lots of law suits being handed out to folks for makin free mixtape jams..Wiz,Mac,myself even..We gotta play this one smart..We got it tho. So don’t trip it’ll be out soons the legal beagles handle it…. Crazy how the game gets huh? I never imagined a time like this…. came up off mixtapes in 08 not financially but they put me on so2speak..Sucks that this may be a lane made unavailable to the next mcs.. But when one door closes, another one opens….We will do the due diligence and have it cleared in its entirety …When u hear it you’ll see what we built…. And it will last forever – @CurrenSy_Spitta
Just As Spitta Said We Gotta Make Surr All The Samples Are Cleared Before We Drop The Tape To Respect The Artists And Publishers We Sampled. Kush Castles Will Still Be Appearing From The Sky. Just Not Today :-( – @RealWizKhalifa
