Currensy's third effort came with wider distribution than his earlier two, but rather than act like a second chance at a spotlight debut, Pilot Talk is a featured-filled album with plenty of tracks that will be familiar to anyone who keeps up on their Internet leaks. In other words, it introduces newcomers to the Currensy mixtape experience, which isn't a bad thing whatsoever. The key cut must be the spacy roller called "King Kong" where the rapper revisits his pilot obsession and talks of swatting them out of the sky with more precision than that ten-story ape (by the mighty "Address" he's got "Crooks in my neck from watching all the jets"). So many fast and smart rhymes flow out of the man during "Breakfast" that track demands repeat listens and when he sets the flippant tone with "I'm so sorry if I don't look excited to be here/In your label office, but they said I can't smoke weed here," guests Mos Def and Jay Electronica follow suit, making "The Day" a prime candidate for underground rapper anthem of 2010. Much praise must be thrown the way of Ski Beatz, who handles all but two of the tracks here but still comes up with a varied set of productions that are both innovative and infectious. For backpackers and underground fans, it's a must, but anyone who wants their hip-hop both a bit stranger and a lot deeper will fall hard for this one. ~ David Jeffries
Artist Overview
Thanks to his smart lyrics, the Louisiana-based Curren$y landed a label deal in 2003, but it took three labels and seven years of underground releases before the rapper made his official debut. Born Shante Anthony Franklin and raised in New Orleans, Curren$y was originally signed to Master P's No Limit label, but in 2005 he made the move to Lil Wayne and Birdman's Cash Money imprint, Young Money. In 2010 he joined the Def Jam family via Damon Dash's imprint DD172. With the label's in-house producer Ski Beatz handling most of the production, Curren$y's Pilot Talk album appeared in July of that year. ~ David Jeffries
