Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y have announced the title and release date for their upcoming collaborative mixtape.
Breaking the news on Twitter, the Taylor Gang leader revealed that the follow up to 2009's How Fly will be titled Live in Concert and will release on August 9th, exactly three years to the date since their previous offering.
Back in May, Curren$y said that the project was complete and explained what took so long to knock out a sequel. We like what we doing. It’s just about music. We like what we do," he said. "If I’ma be in the studio anyway, he gonna be in the studio wherever he at, we fuckin’ genuinely will fuckin’ kick it. So we might as well fuckin’ kick it in the studio. But if we in the studio, we might as well make songs. We gonna hang out and smoke, smoke in the studio. If you in the studio, you might as well record. So we just kick it and turn it into money, so it’s just a good deal."

UPDATE #2: Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y have delayed their joint mixtape Live in Concert to allow more time to clear samples. "We wldnt feel comfortable droppin #LiveInConcert until we get the samples cleared.with how these suits keep poppin up.. Mixtapes ain’t safe," wrote Curren$y. "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 added, "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 :-("
