Producer: Ski Beats
Album: Pilot Talk
Label: Blu Roc

As a former signee of both No Limit and Cash Money, Curren$y has certainly paid his dues in the annals of New Orleans hip hop. Though he was a clear talent, his presence at both labels teetered between uncomfortable and forgettable, and for a long time he seemed destined to become yet another of the many unfortunate label casualities that both camps were producing (word to T-Bo and All $tar, respectively). Until he took matters into his own hands. He went indie, relaxed his flow and embraced his love for agriculture, and the national cult success followed. "King Kong" is one of the many products of that freedom, and it might be his most perfect, with Ski's ominous synths providing an ideal backdrop for Spitta's laid-back, precise cadence.
