Editorial Reviews

About the Artist

New Orleans native, Shante Franklin, also known as the acclaimed indie rapper Curren$y, began his career as an artist on No Limit Records. After developing a relationship with Lil' Wayne, he left No Limit in 2005 and signed with Young Money Entertainment where he created music until late 2007. However, due to differences, Curren$y proceeded to take his style and music elsewhere. As an artist, Curren$y has evolved and perfected his lyrical delivery into a very unique sound. He also created the Jets International brand, a fresh approach to the new urban movement. With his own personal swagger and quick-witted lyrics, he is redefining the essence of what it means to be a southern rapper. As an artist he has built a brand by relentlessly releasing mix tapes, such as "This Ain't No Mixtape" in 2009, and attacking the internet with creative tenacity and conviction for his music. Curren$y has recorded with acclaimed artists such as Lil' Wayne, The Black Keys, The Disco Biscuits, Wiz Khalifa, The Cool Kids, and Mos Def. His latest album, "Pilot Talk," produced by the legendary Ski Beatz, incorporates live instrumentation into Curren$y's recorded live stage performances. Today, Curren$y can often be seen at Damon Dash's New York City media enterprise DD172, where he, as one of the integral artists can often be found in the recording studio working on his next project.

5.0 out of 5 stars Legit Music July 14, 2010
By Caveman
Format:Audio CD
This was the best CD I've listened to in a long time. The guitar and rap mix is soulful and inspiring. I wish I could say such good things about most of today's rap. This is a must buy CD. I love it!!!

Curren$y Tha Hot Spitta finally releases his long overdue debut album Pilot Talk. Curren$y is somewhat of an enigma in the rap game. People may remember him as part of the original Young Money crew with Lil Wayne or may be more familiar with his classic single Where The Ca$h At ft. Remy Ma & Lil Wayne back in 2004. He also was featured on Lil Wayne's critically acclaimed Tha Carter 2 on the single Grown Man.

After a few non-malicious label disputes, a myriad of well received mixtapes and street albums, and a grassroots movement (JETS Son), Curren$y has finally dropped his official major label debut for the masses. I admit I was not that high on Curren$y until around this time last year (2009). I heard the song Car Service with Wiz Khalifa (also who I became a fan of at that time) and the rest was history.

Curren$y definitely has the skills to hang with some of the best rappers of today. Being somewhat of a late bloomer as far mainstream success and being somewhat unorthodox in his approach, Curren$y definitely doesn't disappoint. The album keeps a consistent tone and attitude throughout as we are exposed to his blunted reality. The production perfectly fits his style and, while not eyebrow amazing, is hypnotic and addictive. The guests are along for the ride and don't disappoint at all. The features include Jay Electronica (where's his album already??), Big K.R.I.T. (newest Def Jam signee...look for big things from him), Mos Def, Devin The Dude, Nesby Phips, Smoke DZA, Trademark Da Skydiver and Snoop Dogg.

The superior songs seem to be Audio Dope II, Life Under The Scope, The Day and Prioritize (Shout out to Big Boi!) but every song is at least 4 stars. Curren$y has managed to release an album that's worthy of repeated plays and should not be slept on in the least. Easily one of the better albums of the year and I advise you to pick this one up quickly. 4.5 Stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait! July 13, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Ive been a curren$y fan since before Young Money. After listening to all of his mixtapes on repeat for days at a time, i was wondering what was taking him so long to actually drop an LP. When i heard Pilot Talk was coming out i was excited but nervous at the same time seeing as this was his first album. After listening to this whole CD 3 times on its drop date alone... I can comfortably say... Curren$y is a beast on an underground level as well as mainstream. A+

This is the best of the year so far in Hip-Hop. You can listen to this from beginning to end with no stops. I have so many favorite songs on here it's ridiculous. Ive already put like 10 people on to the album but they can't find it anywhere in Houston so I'm assuming it's sold out. Good album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally a decent rap album April 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a solid rap cd and I've been happy with the purchase. No silly skits mar it. The best cut is "Roasted" -- that is the cut when people at your party say "yo these beats are legit who is this??". I think someone with even a passing interest in rap music would enjoy this.

Interesting enough, Curren$y is an rap artist I've heard about last year through my sister. What makes him so good is like Talib Kweli, Jay Electronica, or even Hi-Tek; they're known in the hip hop world, but none of the fame recognition. What makes Curren$y platinum on this album is the ability to rap on different sounds. The theme could be completely off of normal hip hop beats, and he still raps fluently, and it sounds great. It's nothing short of amazing, and should get platinum and at least a nomination for Best Rap Album of the Year at the Grammys. If you believe otherwise, it's obvious you didn't listen to the album.

Album is awful, Currensy really doesn't have rhyming skills at all. Some of the beats are ok though, but beyond that, this isn't very good hip-hop.
