Curren$y has come a long way from his false starts at Young Money and No Limit. Opting for more creative control by starting his own label Jet Life Records with Warner Bros., Spitta’s musical output has been unmatched by any rapper since then. Throughout his catalog, fans have praised his countless underground mixtapes and EPs as well as his first major release, The Stoned Immaculate. Curren$y has successfully made a career out of weed raps even if he doesn’t want to be pigeonholed with the label. His fondness for the pleasures of smoking and hazy production continues to make him thrive in his comfort zone.
