"Curren$y is back in the major label scene, confirming to XXL that he has inked a deal with Warner Bros. Records. Terms of the deal include his own label Jets International, which will house Fiend and Young Roddy as well as debut his upcoming Covert Coup LP entirely produced by The Alchemist. The upcoming album is due out 4/20."

sounds ok. Very wack that he couldn't do this with Dame though.

Bluroc is a Def Jam imprint... I mean it aint like he was THAT indie.
Feb 01, 2011 @ 16:12
Def Jam only dealt with distribution (for the artist that were on blu roc/def jam). Blu Roc had all creative control. So it was basically all "indie" besides cd prints.
Feb 01, 2011 @ 16:21
^And that's exactly what I think spitta wants to do, sign with a larger name for distribution purposes and have JETS international as his label.

Former Young Money signee and constant Wiz Khalifa collaborator, Curren$y, has just signed a deal with Asylum/Warner Bros. Records, where he'll be dropping his upcoming fifth and sixth studio albums later this year.

The New Orleans native's career flight plan has not come without a few layovers along his burgeoning career. Initially signed to fellow Nawlins rapper C-Murder's Tru Records in 2001, Curren$y was brought over to Master P's New No Limit Records in 2002 after the founder was sentenced to jail. Then from 2004-2007, Curren$y enjoyed a stint on Cash Money Records, as part of Lil Wayne's Young Money Entertainment, before venturing out on his own, releasing a series of mixtapes and focusing on his "Jet Life" apparell and lifestyle brand.

In 2009, the effort paid off as he, in recognition of his talent and drive, was hand-picked to grace the cover of XXL's "Top 10 Freshman" issue amongst the likes of B.O.B, Kid Cudi, Wale and others.

Later that same year, the indie rapper released his debut album, This Ain't No Mixtape, and the follow-up Jet Files through Amalgam Digital.

He kept things going through 2010, dropping Pilot Talk and Pilot Talk II albums through Damon Dash's BluRoc Records. Both projects moved an unprecedented 40K and 30K sold units with minimal effort and has helped the talented lyricist generate over $750K in touring on his own.

Curren$y is now gearing up Muscle Car Chronicles and the anticipated, Pilot Talk III.

However, before the two projects, the rapper will be dropping a new mixtape with the Alchemist on April 19, titled Covert Coup. The release of the mixtape will coincide with a promo tour that begins that night in New Orleans.

I only have PT, PT II, and Return to the Winners Circle.

What other Spitta shit is essential listening?
Feb 04, 2011 @ 09:34
^Fast times at Ridgemont fly is dope..til this day i still think his version of "ride or die chick" entitled "still ridin" is better than the OG..and or course his first two albums, "this aint no mixtape" and "jet files"

Anytime an artist signs to a major label I get worried......
Feb 05, 2011 @ 15:32
Anybody know why Curren$y left YM?

Was it internal problems?
Feb 05, 2011 @ 15:57
not 100 but i think it has to do with weezy not wantin him to shine, not releasing his cd, and i dont think he really fit in with that whole image and wanted to do his own thing. thank god

WORK ON THE KITCHEN TABLE; WHERE THE BAGS AT?

Feb 05, 2011 @ 16:41
Funny
Feb 05, 2011 @ 17:09
I'm definitely tryna be at the show in San Diego.
Feb 05, 2011 @ 18:53
I mean we shouldn't be worried, Spitta's proved he can do this on his own, and damn well at that..if shit don't work at the label its adios..plus at this point with all he's been through I don't think he'd take a deal if it wasn't on his terms like he has stressed over the years, I mean they gave him his own friggin label for the Jets..
Feb 05, 2011 @ 19:09
spitta in vancity? hell yeah!
