Over the years, the growth of the potent music Curren$y is delivering still allows him to grow as an artist of his kind. On that Superbowl night, Curren$y dropped the prelude to his upcoming album ”Pilot Talk 3”. Already established in his own lane, with his own label and a decent roster under the JETS imprint, the New Orleans MC won’t fail to get the attention from the fans.
From his mixtape days, we all got familiar with Curren$y’s work ethic, so we expect nothing less. The project entitled, ”New Jet City” the movie inspired cover from ”New Jack City” customized to Spitta Andretti’s flavor. The project of a reasonnable lenght of 14 tracks is all original music. To increase the appeal of the mixtape, the first single ”Choosin” released a couple days before the official SuperBowl launch features Rick Ross and Wiz Khalifa. The latest thing we’ve heard those 3 on the same records was on the remix of ”Super High” which was the official remix to Ross album’s Teflon Don. The nonrhythmic flow of Curren$y made him create his own formula on which he applies on single extended verse on which he delivers numerous car references and hustling tips are applying to his own business.
”To stand in front this money train doesn’t make sense/I never hustled with no lames, why would I begin?/I’m surviving in this game where many don’t win/But loser ain’t my name it’s one of them” (New Jet City)
Probably categorized as a weed smoke rapper at first, his love for engines and wheels has surfaces through different visuals, so that ”16 Switches pt.2” is the sequel of the original version released back in 2009 on his ”This Ain’t No Mixtape Album”. The first surprise on the free album is coming from the combination of Spitta and one of the hometown hero Juvenile on ”Get Up Bitch” that sample the infamous Juicy J ad-lib. Just enjoy this shit was are the acronym for the JETS. In effect, we all know Curren$y most enjoyable records are under the effect of Marijuana, on which he dedicated a whole song for his primary element. The long-run accomplishment of Spitta’s allows him to voice his opinion on the haters comments and the reward of his hustle over the years. Prior to that, records like ”Drive” portraying his ladder steps to the top, n which he collaborates with his long time partner Young Roddy and Styles P, who did several appearances and even got a mixtape together.

The beat selection will always play a huge part in Curren$y’s music. From the current hottest producers in the game, Lex Luger, Harry Fraud and June James are holding the toughest instrumentals on the project. From all the special guest on the record, the outstanding verse is coming from D-Block’s own Jadakiss and Styles P both respectively on different records.
As expected, Curren$y’s project has been a memorable trip as usual. His ability to renew himself through his raps is what might keep him a spot bright enough for him and his team to get their shine on. New Jet City that couldve been compared to an album due to the numbers of unusual features on the project. This layover will contain all the fans until the next flight of the JETS leader, patiently waiting for ”Pilot Talk 3”.
