Sample clearances are the catalysts behind the halted release of Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa’s mixtape, Live in Concert. The mixtape, which was set to be released August 9, was held back after the looming threat of suits came into play after the two artists looked at the rash of law suits that have been popping up after some recent free releases.
The two took to Twitter, reassuring their awaiting fans with tweets explaining the situation and how they plan on resolving it.
Curren$y, who changed his name to Spitta Andretti , tweeted: “We wouldn’t feel comfortable dropping Live In Concert until we get the samples cleared. With how these suits keep poppin up, mixtapes ain’t safe.”
Wiz Khalifa summed it up by saying, “Just As (Curren$y) said we gotta make sure all the samples are cleared before we drop the tape to respect the artists and publishers we sampled. Kush Castles will still be appearing from the sky. Just not today.”
The two hope that after all the legal work is handled, their mixtape can be released. They also explain that their tape, once released, will be well worth the wait.
“We will do the due diligence and have it cleared in its entirety …When u hear it you’ll see what we built…. And it will last forever.” said Curren$y.
