It’s always cool to see a song being made behind the scenes … can’t say Spitta and Pharrell is the most ideal of collabs, but the work turned out smooth and the visuals are dope.
This clip shows Curren$y, along with Pharrell, in Miami over 24 hours recording “Chasing Paper” off of his first official studio album, The Stoned Immaculate.

Return of the winners circle.
In what Curren$y describes as his “first studio album,” he didn’t disappoint. It’s still the same ‘Spitta’ … same lazy but deliberate flow with captivating wordplay, same content … but the sound seems bigger, perfected. It’s like all the mix tapes and street albums led to this one point for Curren$y to give fans his craft perfected.
Credit should be given where credit is due. Curren$y crafted his lane and stayed in it; nobody is doing it better right now. To simply call it “weed rap” would be a smack in the face to ‘Spitta’ so we’ll call it Cannabis Rap Excellence. He uses weed as a gateway to speaking on his own desires, goals and dreams. It also helps that the album goes so perfectly with lighting one up (at this point weed and Curren$y projects go hand-in-hand, call it synchronization).
Pharrell (“Chasin’ Papers”), Wiz Khalifa (“Jet Life” ft. Big K.R.I.T and “No Squares”), 2 Chainz (“Capitol”) … those are the standout features and they all add to the album’s quality; bringing their own style while meshing with Curren$y’s.
Die-hard fans will be pleased with The Stoned Immaculate and new listeners will find tracks to bump. I’m excited to see the J.E.T.S brand continue to expand (especially with the development of Young Roddy as an artist). “N*ggas is beast hype, tryna be like, what we write .. Ain’t nuthin but that JET Life.”
