Disappointing news for fans that were waiting for Wiz Khalifa & Curren$y’s “Live In Concert” mixtape today. It seems that the tape has been delayed until all the samples on it have been cleared. This doesn’t usually happen with free mixtapes but Wiz and Spitta are playing it safe after Lord Finesse sued Mac Miller. No word on when we can expect the project.
Here’s what Curren$y and Wiz had to say about it:
Curren$y: 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.
Wiz Khalifa: 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
