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

  • waltcity

    this nigga crazy yo

  • THEdopeboy

    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...

  • Grade A

    dude is talentless. why is it that ppl try to rap without understanding what it even is. FUCK WACK RAPPERS.

  • foggy

    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

  • PesoLoSo

    curren$y is wack, talentless?? who you haters bumpin?? Waka Flocka?? Shyne??? Soulja Boy?? Gucci Mane???

  • MalcolmREX

    @Dabest

    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.

  • Clyde Dreskler

    Scududududududududududuudududududududududududud

  • Agent Gibbs

    Girl in the second video looks RIGHT.

  • Grade A

    HEY PesoLoSo - google the word SLAUGHTERHOUSE

  • fuckthemalls

    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.

  • jay

    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

  • waltcity

    look at these angry orangutans! yall hatin for nothin curren$y smokin good laughin at yall niggas

  • youngscrew

    curren$y go hard coppin pilot talk 2 when it comes out

    IT WAS A DOPE ALBUM....SO IT WAS A SUCCESS . END OF.

  • GR

    Currensy's lost too many brain cells from weed. He'll keeping getting more and more inarticulate over the years.

  • Kal

    Cosign^^
    Sales mean nothing if the cd you bought is utter shit.
    Pilot Talk stays in rotation & from the snippet scudududud 2 will.. too haha

  • Kal

    Cosign at Cronos lmao at GR

  • His Airness

    Pilot talk goes. I bump that shit everyday. To each his own, but niggas who don't listen to spitta are missing out.

  • realshit

    weed doesnt kill brain cells, he just kushed out

  • SharkWithSomeWings

    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.

  • http://5vemics.com eli porter

    know what im sayin,know what im sayin,know what im sayin,know what in sayin

  • Curren$y

    word: curren$y is wack, talentless?? who you haters bumpin?? Waka Flocka?? Shyne??? Soulja Boy?? Gucci Mane???

  • Benny Blanco from Da BriX

    "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.

  • NawMeen

    Lol This Guy Dont Need Album Sales.. He Just Needs To Drop New Music So He Can Make Money Of Shows

  • http://youtube.com/mickswaggger GOD

    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)

  • http://youtube.com/mickswaggger GOD

    By the way...if weed "stimulates neurological growth", then why can Curren$y not even complete a sentence?

    That's what I thought.

  • Benny Blanco from Da BriX

    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.

  • Benny Blanco from Da BriX

    "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.

  • realshit

    obviously not a lot of u blaze

  • blockburner

    Exactly what I was gonna say..just without the CAPS LOCK

  • red

    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.

  • FRESHman10

    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

    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.

  • http://twitter.com/ludabam24 ludabam24

    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

  • scuddududududud

    IT WAS A DOPE ALBUM….SO IT WAS A SUCCESS . END OF.

    What he said.

  • youknowhat

    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.

  • youknowhat

    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.

  • DAv..

    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.

  • bbc.

    fuck that. if you didnt buy spittas album, go get it now!

  • john.fooool

    race cars and weed jordans nigga

  • Mac Lethal

    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.

  • http://www.mail4cash.tk PostcardCashSuccess

    I like currency better if he wasn't so monotone

  • ssz

    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

  • http://myspace.com/weavafever Weava

    Curren$y over Ski Beats = CLASSIC

  • J.E.T.S.

    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"
    classic

  • michaelb

    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

  • oldhead

    curren$y is dope. there were some joints on the jet files mixtape that were easily better than some on pilot talk.

  • wowowow

    Pilot Talk is something you could listen to for months. Slaughter House is more like a week.. if that.

  • http://www.pardonthedopeness.blogspot.com DP

    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.

  • whoooaaaa

    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

  • DJ Drama

    young money curren$y>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>pilot talk curren$y

  • Jets

    @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.

  • http://www.2dopeboyz.com/ RomanRuninsFTW

    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.

  • http://www.2dopeboyz.com/ RomanRuninsFTW

    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.

  • HermesThiefGod

    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...

    @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.

  • Big L

    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.
