Pilot Talk

“So sorry if I don’t look happy to be here, in your label office but they say I can’t smoke weed here.”

A few days ago I asked whether or not Curren$y’s audience would be receptive to his forthcoming major label record, Pilot Talk, which will be released via Def Jam… Well, if it’s full of more songs like “The Day”, the answer should be a resounding yes! Over Ski Beatz production Curren$y and Jay Electronica lay out verses retelling “the day” when they came into their own in terms of the direction of their music.  While Curren$y talks about walking out of label adjectives and taking the music to his home studio with his own work style, Jay Electronica tackles Chuck D vs. Flavor Flav and all that comes with it. Mos Def serves as a narrator pushing the story along, and it sounds brilliant.

I was actually going to write out all the word, but it just didn’t work out.  Get it below.
