Curren$y Enlists Wale, 2 Chainz, Pharrell & More For "The Stoned Immaculate"
Curren$y enlists a cast of characters for his next album that also includes Tone P, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Monsta Beatz, Daz and more.
While Curren$y usually links with one or two producers for the entirety of a project, he plans on expanding his horizons for his next album, The Stoned Immaculate. During an interview with MTV News, the New Orleans, Louisiana rapper revealed producers for the project, including Monsta Beatz, Pharrell, Daz, BINK!, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Tone P, DJ Toomp and more. Guests include 2 Chainz and Wale, who is featured on a cut produced by BINK!
"This is a different look than anything I’ve usually done. Usually I work with one person or try to just keep it to two producers on the project. Usually I work with Ski [Beatz]. Monsta Beatz did the whole Weekend at Burnie's. This time, I reached out. I got BINK! to produce a track that me and Wale did. I just shot a video for that, so that’ll be out in a second or two. Bink! produced ‘What It Look Like,’ Pharrell produced a joint for me, Daz did two joints and rapped on one for me. That was ill because I always felt like Tha Dogg Pound had it. J.U.S.T.I.C.E League, Tone P… But of course I’ve got Monsta Beatz on there too, but this time, I reached out a little bit. Toomp came through in Atlanta."
He also explained why now is the time for him to work with more than just one or two producers. Spitta said that he has to look out for his Jet Life crew and knows that by attracting more attention to himself, he can give them more shine.
"It’s a mutual thing. I only work with people who I even have a real conversation with. nothing is forced. I got 2 Chainz on my album, and me and 2 Chainz been cool since me and Tity Boi was cool. That’s what happened. It’s not like I did different and reached out. I kind of cashed in on my friendships. I’m like, I’m about to do this this time, so come on. What makes sense to do it now because I’m trying to get a lot of attention towards my crew, also. I got a whole label going on, so I gotta draw more eyes and play ball to make it easier on everybody else. I know that much now."
