Ranking Curren$y's "Pilot Talk" 1, 2, & 3 From Worst To Best
It’s been five years since the original Pilot Talk instalment and three years between studio releases for New Orleans rapper Curren$y. While his 2012 effort The Stoned Immaculate earned critical acclaim and charted higher than any previous release, and he’s certainly stayed busy with multiple mixtapes, tours, and a live album, Curren$y has seemingly been unable to harness the excitement and acclaim that his first two studio albums brought him.
Hip-Hop Reacts To The Death Of Freddie Gray & Baltimore Riots
On April 12, 25-year-old Freddie Gray was arrested in Baltimore for possession of a switchblade, though it's still not clear why he was pursued in the first place. Police claim Gray was apprehended without force, though bystanders have suggested otherwise, and video evidence shows Gray screaming while being forced into the police's van. What happened next is still being investigated, though by the time Gray arrived at the police station, he was unresponsive, unable to talk or breathe.

Review: Curren$y "Pilot Talk III"
After a near-decade of hustling, Curren$y has finally landed his prominent role in the rap scene. It wasn’t easy work, but anyone who has watched the New Orleans-native go from Lil Wayne’s sidekick to stoner rap’s most consistent contributor will tell you that much. For his third Pilot Talk album, Curren$y didn’t reinvent the wheel, but he definitely refined it. His vision is clearer now more than ever: funny rhymes + some swaggy braggadocio + luxurious production = success. It also equates to a pleasant listen each time.
Curren$y's Realest "Pilot Talk III" Lines
Curren$y is one of the realest, and most hilarious rappers out. Whether you're high as a kite or straight as an arrow, the Hot Spitta will have you nodding your head in agreeance to whatever he rhymes, and every now then, you just might giggle. Some rappers spit knowledge, some rappers spit about material items, and other rappers talk about their pot consumption, their cars and their bitches. Curren$y is definitely the latter.
#TBT: Mixtape Khalifa
Before Wiz Khalifa was a household name, he was on the mixtape grind. Before he was selling out stadiums, he was shelling out free material and making fans all over the internet. A few years later, the guy was everywhere. Wiz is another example of how free music (and the internet) can lead to fruitful careers. If it wasn't for the highly popular Kush & Orange Juice mixtape, who knows if we'd even be writing this article today.

Chill Out: 10 Rappers With Laid-Back Flow
The art of rapping started off in the form of spoken word and poetry, but you don't hear a lot of "poetry" in modern-day popular rap. This could be for a multitude of reasons. For starters, the club doesn't want to put you to sleep. And Neither does the radio. For whatever reason, songs that make you think don't seem to have wheels in 2015. But that's okay though, 'cause we got you.
