(AllHipHop News) Before Wiz Khalifa became a household name with 2010's "Black and Yellow," the Pittsburgh rapper frequently teamed up with New Orleans emcee Curren$y on music. Wiz went on to become a regular on Top 40 radio while Spitta built a supportive fanbase as an underground artist.

In a recent interview with DJ Smallz, Curren$y spoke about his friend's rise to becoming a commercially successful performer. The creator of the recently released Canal Street Confidential album also addressed the media's tendency to want to pit the How Fly and Live In Concert collaborators against each other.
"Once you cross over to that sh*t, you got people that are there just because they don't like you. There's no way of knowing now, because you're in that world," said Curren$y about becoming a mainstream star. "But for [Wiz] to exist there and for me to be doing my thing in the underground, and with people in the media always asking us questions about one another in a way to try to create something."
