Spitta sits down with RubyHornet to discuss the success of his latest album, Pilot Talk. I’ve also included some behind-the-scenes footage of Curren$y’s upcoming video for Michael Knight.

Lol @ pilot talk doing 10,000 his first week & months later he’s still around 16k total
And it’s a success lmaoo
this nigga crazy yo
obviously he wasnt gonna do drake numbers but it was still a success as an underground artist
but you probably dont know shit so move along…
dude is talentless. why is it that ppl try to rap without understanding what it even is. FUCK WACK RAPPERS.
16,000 is good for curren$y, he a independent artist and the promotion wasnt even good for his album, if he was 50 cent or ross 16,000 wud be a fail
curren$y is wack, talentless?? who you haters bumpin?? Waka Flocka?? Shyne??? Soulja Boy?? Gucci Mane???
Yeah but it was critically acclaimed…Every magazine, website, etc gave it great reviews.
There are albums that do well number wise, and get low ratings.
So in a sense it’s a successful release.
Girl in the second video looks RIGHT.
HEY PesoLoSo – google the word SLAUGHTERHOUSE
Shit I too would say it was a success, considering he’s indie and it was critically acclaimed. Since he isn’t signed damn near all of the money from the cd sales go to him. Under today’s contracts he probably made more off of album sales than a majority of rappers do.
yeah pilot talk was dope spitta got a strong fan base only people that sell records is probably drake kanye eminem nobody buys music any more kind of sad Music industry is getting raped by the internet thats why I dont see whats the big deal about being a mainstream artist indie is where its at Jets bitch
look at these angry orangutans! yall hatin for nothin curren$y smokin good laughin at yall niggas
curren$y go hard coppin pilot talk 2 when it comes out
IT WAS A DOPE ALBUM….SO IT WAS A SUCCESS . END OF.
Currensy’s lost too many brain cells from weed. He’ll keeping getting more and more inarticulate over the years.
Sales mean nothing if the cd you bought is utter shit.
Pilot Talk stays in rotation & from the snippet scudududud 2 will.. too haha
Cosign at Cronos lmao at GR
Pilot talk goes. I bump that shit everyday. To each his own, but niggas who don’t listen to spitta are missing out.
weed doesnt kill brain cells, he just kushed out
What’s all this about $pitta still being indie? He’s signed to Dame Dash’s label DD172. Look it up.
They coulda done a lot better for Spit Vicious, but truly as long as he’s making his money I’d rather have most people just not understand the dude.
know what im sayin,know what im sayin,know what im sayin,know what in sayin
word: curren$y is wack, talentless?? who you haters bumpin?? Waka Flocka?? Shyne??? Soulja Boy?? Gucci Mane???
“weed doesnt kill brain cells, he just kushed out”
^^^^^^^^^This is true. Alcohol kills brain cells, weed does not, it might actually stimulate neurological growth.
The lie about weed killing brain cells is because back in the day when they tested weed on monkeys they put a gas mask on them & pumped weed smoke into them for a continuous amount of time without allowing any additional oxygen for them to breathe. So really they were just suffocating the monkeys which caused brain damage. These “intelligent” scientist saw that the monkeys had brain damage & figured “hey, it must be the pot smoke”.
People need to stop believing all the bullshit that the govnt. tells us everyday. Especially nowadays with all this info on the internet, we have the ability to educate ourselves.
Lol This Guy Dont Need Album Sales.. He Just Needs To Drop New Music So He Can Make Money Of Shows
Okay Curren$y is dope BUT…
I bought a “Jet Life” shirt from his DD172 store on Big Cartel and those are the worst quality shirts I have ever worn. The logo literally ripped off right after I tried the shirt on. Now I know you’re workin with slimy ass Dame Dash, but damn homie can I live?? They were like $30 too! So since since they actin hella cheap I will too and Im not gonna buy his shit again. CMON SON! (Ed Lover voice)
By the way…if weed “stimulates neurological growth”, then why can Curren$y not even complete a sentence?
That’s what I thought.
Ha, anyone else notice on the Michael Knight video at :35 secs, he’s puffin on a joint & raises his lighter to his mouth to light it up again before he realizes it’s already lit. That shit was funny as hell, he tried to play it off n shit.
“By the way…if weed “stimulates neurological growth”, then why can Curren$y not even complete a sentence?”
Uh, cuz maybe he’s just high as hell. Weed doesn’t make people stupid (only while they’re high). Stupid people who smoke weed are gonna be stupid regardless, the weed doesn’t help but it’s also not the cause.
obviously not a lot of u blaze
ppl on here are trippin curren$y is the most slept on .. people forget he started the whole style> wiz, man miller, asher roth many others
pilot talk was one of the best albums ive heard in a looooonngg while….spitta is my favorite rapper and i bump him daily JETS FOOL and yea curren$y hands out so many styles he has gam so many rappers it aint even funny he has the grand scheme of things
“I bought a “Jet Life” shirt from his DD172 store on Big Cartel and those are the worst quality shirts I have ever worn. The logo literally ripped off right after I tried the shirt on”

Exactly what I was gonna say..just without the CAPS LOCK
Success is when the critics and the fans give you good reviews on the CD. I got 2 of my friends into Curren$y heavy, and that CD gets play almost everyday at my crib.
I don’t care about numbers, its bigger than that. You should realize someone as weeded and chill at Curren$y doesn’t give a fuck about Billboard success.
Look for all niggas ridin in coach needs to get off get off the man’s nuts…if you don’t understand what he’s sayin its over your head, he’s too metaphoric for you clowns. And all of the Pilot Talk’s sales went straight into his pocket so who the laughin at who…smh…clown ass wack world
page reserved for TRUE PILOTS!!!!!!!!!!
@jonnie #salute my ninja
is ready for a mixtape, even though im already gettin pilot talk 2.
just toss us a lil ep/lp. cus you know niggas are ready to J E T life with a good ass soundtrack.
fuck every single person who says spitta cant rap.. the truth is hes better than your favorite rapper.. Pilot Talk hardly got any promotion for pilot talk and it sells 10000 in the first week thats not bad DD172s gettin way more then what they paid for to make the album JETS
What he said.
lol guys let’s be real, 16,000 isn’t a success, period. He had a video on MTV Jams, he is rolling with Dame and bringing back “Rockafella”… the CD was dope and musically successful, but that’s the extent of it.
lol and to the dude who said his first week sales made more than Eminems because he’s on interscope… are you on crack, seriouslly? If so pass it this way, I could use a break from reality too.
Its funny how spitta smokes so much & still says some of the most ariculate shit..
“Like bitches blow him like a malfuntioning Nintendo Cartridge”
his vocabulary is vast as shit & his album was a classic,who cares what it sold.. I mean Illmatic didnt go platinum first day..so fuck off haters.
fuck that. if you didnt buy spittas album, go get it now!
race cars and weed jordans nigga
One of these days you cats will get that in order for an album to turn a profit independently, you don’t need to sell 100,000 copies first week.
Shit, depending on how much Dame spent on that Curren$y album, he might be profiting every sale right now. Or he’s at least close.
And it’s a new album, so the sales should at least double in the next year. Not mad at all.
I like currency better if he wasn’t so monotone
spitta is the most underrated dude in the game right now..he was on waynes level back in 04, dude never fell off..he just don’t wanna be tied to the industry
Curren$y over Ski Beats = CLASSIC
man how can there be so many curren$y haters. he has dope flow over dope beats and a dope style and he just raps about how he lives his life. youtube his video for reagan era.
“store my bitches numbers in an ipod shuffle”
rofl grade a’s a faggot slaughterhouse isnt bad but shouldnt be some kind of counterargument to spitta. theyre talented but that cds nowhere near as good of an album as pilot talk smh
curren$y is dope. there were some joints on the jet files mixtape that were easily better than some on pilot talk.
Pilot Talk is something you could listen to for months. Slaughter House is more like a week.. if that.
some bitch just told me while I was doing my laundry that curren$y was wack because he wasn’t with young money anymore. I could have literally slapped her ass with the detergent I was holding.
yoooo spitta dont suck i respect what he is doing… but i just cant get into his new flow!!! its like he dont be rhyming sometimes.. i hate thats shit.. honestly i like him alot.. he should go back to his young money flow that shit was smooth and fluid… listenn to live at 30,000 feet and d2 c2 and independence day them flows were really fluid… as far as flow goes big sean drake mickey factz flow>>>> spitta flow… but i respect spitta alot though
young money curren$y>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>pilot talk curren$y
@whooooooo remember he had to change up because with that flow he wasn’t getting nowhere. Alot of ppl like his old flow, as do i, but he mainly used that flow for in and out now.
@DJ Drama GO SUCK A FAT BABIES BALLS!
Ym & Pilot Talk curren$y>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> You
Benny Blanco from Da BriX < weed does slow down the brain with excessive use, slows neuron communication, can cause paranoia, and scizophrenia, and short term memory loss thos are SOME of thE NEGATIVE effects. part of smoking is being RESPONSIBLE enought to inform yourself and ADMIT the dangers. otherwise ur just a NAIEVE.
Currensy is NOT lyrical miracle. lets get that right.
He can rap tho.
He is not in anyway one of my top “emcees” at all
BUT the PILOT TALK ALBUM was EASILY one of the best of 2010. EASILY. you know why becasue it was a COHERENT, ORIGINAL SOUNDING, GREATSOUNDING piece of work.
Jimmy Hendrix can not actually sing that well.FACT. but he is one of the BEST rockers of all TIME.FACT.
Has anyone mentioned that pilot talk was undershipped as well, (another reason for the 16k)…
Anyway.. Im a huge Curren$y fan but pilot talk wasnt all that IMO. obviously theres the amazing ski production… Was hoping he wouldn’t have so many features tho. Wiz and big krit wouldv been cool.. Then theres that dreaded snoop verse. Shrugs* . looking forward 2 the sequel tho…
Dudes uptop arguing about weed being bad or good for you?
Just blaze motherfuckers, you gna die anyway…
JETS Foo! Aye Bruh Yall Haters Suck My Muhhh Fuckin Dick Hoes On My Dick Cux iLook Like Bret Hart Ya Feel Meh (Lil B voice)
Grade A, you are hater & don’t know what good hip hop sound like curre$y is not wack like your favortie rapper. you are just jealouos Curre$y is better then your favortie rapper . bun b even says it. so shut up with your wack ass hate
lol’n @My Momma Told Me To Say Fuck Yall
fa the ones who sayin spitta is whack u obviously like the dude in sum way u on here lookin at the vids of him so stopin actin like spiteful lil girls spitta is one of the best thats speakin on what he really does unlike ppl like lil’ wayne an to the rest of the JETS where havent we been yet
Pilot Talk was acutally one the first albums that ive bought in a LONG time..can’t wait to Pilot Talk 2 comes out.
If your looking for Jets shirts and hats don’t buy from the DD172 website….sneakerpolitics.com is where u need to go if u don’t live in Louisiana
@God lol you are dumb as fuck the man may not be able to complete a sentence but can you do what he does on a day to day bases (being rapping) and be high as fuck? you are a tard an need to know that no matter how much work you put into it that you couldnt even write a single fucking verse. obviously he is pretty intelligent if he can pair lyrics together like he does an obviously you are too pissed off an retard strong to be okay with that. go drink some bleach you dick suckin’ faggot.
God damn, I cant even stand listening to drake, let alone those 3 dumb ass fucks Waka flocka, Gicci mane, and OJ da Juiceman. Its unbelieveable how that raping faggot Drake gets all of the hype yet he has not lyricism whatsoever.
I could listen to Curren$y all day. JETS FOOL
seriously you put Drake in the same category as Waka and them.. wow you fail fuck
lmao @hermes snoop killed my buzz too
center edge territory!
Who will be the next lucky dog?
