Watch (and Listen to) This: Wiz Khalifa/Curren$y’s How Fly Mix Tape and ‘Commercials’Dante JordanMarch 4, 2017
But you know what also takes me back? The How Fly “commercials” that Wiz and Curren$y dropped before the mixtape. Dog. They. Are. Golden. I can’t even really tell you why, but I used to absolutely love getting high and watching two things: Wiz/Curren$y U-Stream (shout out to the people who remember) broadcasts, and these two commercials.
Maybe it’s for two reasons:
- I love video footage of people before they “made it” because it shows me that my goals are valid
- I simply love goofy stoner shit
These two commercials fall right under those reasons. The way they’re joking about how they’ll act when they become rich, famous, and successful cracks me up because they’ve both achieved that status and haven’t changed a single bit. It’s refreshing.
If you’re unfamiliar with these artists’ relationship and personalities, you might not think it’s so funny, but get high enough and you might enjoy watching these as College Dante once did. For the full experience, go to your nearest dispensary, grab you a gram of OG Kush (our preferred strain in those days), load up the bong like it’s December 31st, and take rips until you’re on the floor dying laughing at Curren$y using his best friend’s closet as a think tank, or Wiz on the phone yelling “Hello?! Yeah. HOW ARE YOU?! Me?! Oh, I’m rich!” It’s the best form of nostalgia.
P.S. I still haven’t forgotten that we’re owed a How Fly 2. And I never will.
