(AllHipHop News) Jet Life Recordings CEO and founder Curren$y recently embarked on his “Stoned Immaculate Tour”, one that will make nearly 50 nationwide stops before its conclusion.
The tour also brings along his Jet Life Recordings family, including Mousa, Trademark da Skydiver, Young Roddy, Corner Boy P, Fiend, and Smoke Dza.
In a recent interview with AllHipHop.com, Curren$y talked about enjoying the overall success of his recent tours and the rapidly growing fan base across the country, despite being detained recently in Texas by the Dallas Police.
“I just said the other day, I am generally [pleased]. Yo, that’s crazy, that’s the last thing I said before the boys rolled on the bus. I tweeted, ‘I’m generally pleased with everything,’ and then Murphy came in,” Curren$y told AllHipHop.com. “Yo I never had a pair of handcuffs on me in my life, maybe in the bed with chicks… but that sh*t was terrible. I don’t wish that on nobody.”
The New Orleans bred rapper, who released seven projects in 2011 and 2012, also talked about his work ethic and his drive to continue to release music.
“It’s not work, see like it’s not work. Like I f*ckin think like, dudes like basketball players get basketball colored sh*t in their house and sh*t because they like to play basketball. It’s play basketball, it’s work, but play basketball. This sh*t is fun, I want to do it. It’s not work for them, it’s fun to break somebody’s ankles with basketball, just like it’s fun to be good at that sh*t, it’s fun to be good at rap,” Curren$y explained to AllHipHop.com.
“It’s nothing to me to put out 100 records tonight, and then go to sleep, and then once I think y’all know all words to that sh*t, then probably do this sh*t again, because I don’t have to go through some crazy process. I’m not sweating to write this sh*t, it’s nothing. I’m not even talking sh*t. Like, ’cause some people don’t even like my raps. People be like, ‘It sounds like he wrote that sh*t in five minutes.’ I did, that’s how I get down. I don’t feel like I’m doing work. The minute the sh*t feel like work, you supposed to quit.”
Curren$y’s latest album, The Stoned Immaculate, is available for pre-order now on his website, www.CurrensySpittta.com. Pre-orders include The Stoned Immaculate CD, an exclusive “Up In Smoke” Rolling Tray, and an instant, digital Mp3 download of “Fast Cars, Faster Women” featuring Daz Dillenger.
