Prepare for lift off as we analyze how the "Pilot Talk" albums rank against themselves.
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.
So, it was unsurprising when Curren$y decided to dance with who brought him once more, with another instalment, Pilot Talk 3.
The biggest reunion, though, isn't between Curren$y and the Pilot Talk moniker, but rather Curren$y’s reunion with producer Ski Beatz. Because of the critical and fan acclaim for their collaborations on Pilot Talk’s 1 and 2, Ski Beatz was conspicuous by his absence on its follow-ups. Now that the pseudo-homecoming is in full effect with April’s release of Pilot Talk 3 and the positive reviews are in, it’s safe to say that the Pilot Talk Trilogy stands as a killer catalogue of music from the southern Spitta.
Since the dust has settled and the jets wheels have touched the ground, now seems as good of a time as any to dig into the three Pilot Talk releases and put them up against one another. Click along as we rank the Pilot Talk's. Which one has been your favorite? Let us know.
