Curren$y Planning Five Projects for 2011
Spitta says planning five different releases for this year alone.
Since his 2009 debut This Ain't No Mixtape, rapper Curren$y has been consistent with dropping two retail releases a year. Now, with his EP with the Alchemist Covert Coup and his fifth full length album Muscle Car Chronicles already slated for this spring, Spitta told TheWellVersed.com that he plans two release at least five projects this year.
"I’d say about five projects," he said. "I used to put out mixtapes every month. So now three retail projects and a couple of mixtapes, that’s cool. Those free projects will hold everybody down so they can get used to my next series. Those same people want to support you. That’s why you have to show love with the free shit and they’ll go out and pick up the retail."
Spitta also talked about his upcoming fifth LP Muscle Car Chronicles, due out May 3 on BluRoc Records. He explained that this latest project, which he produced entirely by Sean O'Connell, was actually the first project he had begun working on when he first signed to Dame Dash's imprint.
"[Muscle Car Chronicles is] all the way different," he explained. "I recorded that before I even worked on Pilot Talk 1 & 2. That’s the first project I recorded when I started working with Dame Dash. When I started on that, Dame was still working on BlakRoc [with the Black Keys]…that’s actually how I ended up being homies with him. I put a verse on BlakRoc 2. He let me hear some of the music he was putting together. Some of it was to my liking so I began smashing records out for Muscle Car Chronicle."
