Return to the Winners Circle

In my final year of undergrad I approached clubs week with renewed purpose. In addition to my beloved ASA (and its sister clubs), I signed up to write for the Western Gazette. Like most of the ambitious wordsmiths that congregated for that first meeting, I wanted to write for their Entertainment section. However, unlike the rest of the group I wanted to control my own content. Stubborn as ever I endeavored to be the solo hip-hop reviewer amidst a sea of college-rock-rejects.

It is that spirit that returns me to my keyboard to discuss Curren$y’s latest mixtape “Return to the Winners Circle.” However, unlike the old days I will not be providing a score. Why? Because I don’t write reviews for content I don’t enjoy. With that said, let the love begin.

After a nearly two year hiatus from the racing circuit, Spitta returns to the Winner’s Circle with renewed vigor. Released minutes after we entered twenty-eleven Curren$y comes with his braggadocios best in this traditional take on the mixtape; traditional because the production is provided primarily by previously recorded rap gems. For example: his gritty take on the recording industry (Record Deals) is crooned over the ATLiens classic “Mainstream.”

In addition, the video single “Daze of Thunder” is laced a top the Yeezy produced “Live Fast, Die Young.” Yet, no matter what beat bangs in the background Curren$y remains bow-tie till he dies by spitting his love for Chevy. He adds in a pinch of pilot talk for all those still playing with paper planes; and he proves once again that he is the hardest working man in hip-hop by giving us even more material to study.

With two albums planned for 2011 and a mixtape with Alchemist I’m sure to have even more JETS life to relax to, write to, and blog about. Thx Spitta!

      This year promises to be even crazier for JETS head pilot Curren$y. He is teaming up with Sean O’Connell (label-mate and folk singer/songwriter) for “Muscle Car Chronicle.” It will be released later this year, and of course him and Ski are returning to do Pilot Talk 3! Get your paper planes ready buddy ;)
