(AllHipHop News) New Orleans rapper Curren$y has expanded his Jet life Recordings, adding half of The Cool Kids, rapper Sir Michael Rocks and Harlem’s Smoke DZA to the roster.
This past Sunday (October 23) Curren$y took to Twitter to unleash the news about Sir Michael Rocks.
“Roll one for @SirMichaelRocks for he is indeed Jet Life Official… Pop a bottle for dat man,” Curren$y tweeted. “So honestly we must follow @SirMichaelRocks… simply because #mikerocksisjetlife.”
While most fans saw this coming, yesterday (October 26), Curren$y revealed another signing, frequent collaborator Smoke DZA.
Curren$y took to Twitter to announce the news once again.
“Well its late, but not to [sic] late to pop a bottle for @smokedza joining the set… J.L.R… Now to turn this bus into a celebration station.”
In an interview with Ashley Outrageous, Sir Michael Rocks spoke in depth about the signing.
“I was talking to Curren$y a little minute ago about what I was doing on the solo side because outside The Cool Kids, I kind of wanted to be like the Wu-Tang theory,” Sir Michael Rocks explained regarding the solo deal.
“You know they had a group, but all the individual members, they break off and do they own s**t too and make classics, then come back in to the group, link back up and make that s**t bigger,” Sir Michael Rocks stated.
Before the Jet Life Recordings deal, Sir Michael Rocks was allegedly rumored to be in the process of signing to Dame Dash’s BluRoc Records.
However, Sir Michael Rocks says that he respects Curren$y’s ambition for his Jet Life imprint.
“It really wouldn’t be a better place for me right now… at this point in my career,” Sir Michael Rocks added.
Sir Michael Rocks also says that he will join Curren$y on the road soon.
The new label boss is currently on The Smoker’s Club tour alongside Method Man, Big K.R.I.T., and newest signee Smoke DZA.
“I’m on tour with The Cool Kids right now… after I get off this tour, I’ll probably end up hopping on the road with them for a minute and finishing off the rest of that tour,” the rapper revealed.
Sir Michael Rocks also hinted at a possible Jet Life compilation as well.
“You know we have to the inaugural posse cut,” the rapper reasoned. “We’re going to the inaugural posse cut real soon and just smack everyone over the head.”
Curren$y, who was signed to Master P’s No Limit Records, as well as Lil Wayne’s Young Money label early on in his career, has seen a resurgence in popularity in the last few years.
On February 1, Curren$y signed a label deal with Warner Bros. Records for Jet Life Recordings, with Covert Coup being the first released project under the imprint.
Sir Michael Rocks and Smoke DZA will be joining the Jet Life roster alongside Curren$y’s two young buzzing sidekicks, Trademark Da Skydriver, & Young Roddy, as well as former No Limit rapper Fiend, Corner Boy P, Monsta Beatz, Street Wiz and Mousa.
