Artist: Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y
Record Label: Atlantic Records
Standout Tracks: Track4: “The Life”, Track 9: “Getting Loose”
In 2009, Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y were some of the industries top rappers, and now in 2019 they release an album that displays their still the same people with the same sound, same drugs and just a bit more fame and fortune. The duo returns with a new album over a decade later
of “How Fly,” a 15 track mixtape that catered to the potheads of the world.
The Life is easily one of the best tracks on the album. Has some gorgeous keys and great lyrics. Their chorus is catchy going, “This is the life, b**ches and Nikes/ Planes and Chucks, bottles and luxury.” The ability of this song to incorporate some cool instrumentals allow the song to distinguish itself from the others, but still fit the cohesive, upbeat vibe of the album.
Getting Loose is not the greatest rap song of all time, but it definitely has some good energy. Curren$y definitely could have thought a little harder as a lyricist “I’m getting loose, lil’ b**ch, getting loose/ I don’t wanna know the truth, got stars in my roof, yeah”- lets just be thankful we have Wiz in this song. The beats are there and bouncy, and despite the lyrics it is a good song. With all due respect to Wiz, Blueface would absolutely love this song.
Curren$y and Wiz are just two lovable stoners. Their new releases might have the same 2009 sound, but it is good. It is a throwback album, but manages to sound completely fresh, the raps are clean, bouncy, and fun.The lyrics are not complex, but they are easy to listen to and have some good beats. The album is short, which isn’t a bad thing it just means that its concise. This album simply confirms the relevance and power of these artist has not changed and that they still got it.
