Curren$y, “King Kong”

Post Author:

Curren$y entered my radar after a few collaborations with former No Limit Soldier Fiend that sounded as though they were produced by Truth & Soul. Since those gems, I've been on alert in the control tower, trying to track down information on his upcoming record Pilot Talk.

Produced by Creative Control, the video for “King Kong” reminds me of the old Cash Money Millionaires videos (like Juvenile's “Ha”), but the black and white tint mixed with slow motion cuts gives weight to Curren$y's claims of “King Kong ain't got shit on me.” There's a subtle nod in the beginning to Curren$y's side project with Mos Def and Jay Electronica called Center Edge Territory with Curren$y cruising to Black Star's “Respiration” – I'm practically foaming at the mouth for that release.

Pilot Talk is scheduled for a July 13 release date on newly reformed Roc-A-Fella Records, but I'll believe it when Dame Dash smacks it in the face with CD jewel case.
