Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y are like the 2010 West Coast gangsta version of Mos Def and Talib Kweli (aka Blackstar). Check out Huey Newton which features a Toto sample…now THAT’s gangsta.

Blackstar?! Blasphemy?!  Hear me out.  In 1999, very few people knew who Mos Def and Talib Kweli were.  They were both signed to Rawkus and somebody had the idea to put them together for an album to raise awareness ahead of their solo albums.  One hip-hop classic later, hip-hop heads are still talking about that album 10 years later.  It was an instant classic.  Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa have not made an album together (though they did make a mixtape), but they have made several dope songs together that, years from now, will go down as classics.  Feel me now?  Check out Huey Newton:
