Smoke DZA, Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa have all made excellent stoner music separately, so it was only a matter of time before the rappers joined forces for one big smoke fest. Roll one up to “Legends in the Making (Ashtray Pt. 2)” produced by Harry Fraud.
Per its namesake and identical drums, the track is the follow-up to “Ashtray” from DZA’s 2012 Rugby Thompson album.
Harry Fraud, who helmed Rugby Thompson and has worked separately with Wiz and Currensy, explains that the song was DZA’s brainchild. “I was taking DZA’s cue,” says the Brooklyn native. “We did Rugby Thompson together. This was a continuation of the record ‘Ashtray Pt. 1’ with Domo Genesis and ScHoolboy Q and DZA said, ‘I want to get Wiz and Spitta on a record. That would be crazy.'” Interestingly, the song was created piecemeal and not in one hazy session as you would expect.
“Legends in the Making” serves both as the first single from DZA’s forthcoming Dream Zone Achieved album and the debut release from Fraud’s SRFSCHL Records, newly-minted in conjunction with Priority Records.
Says Fraud, “This is the next part of that stoner shit.”
