Rapper Curren$y: Independent Artist & Business Man

In 2011, Curren$y signed a label deal for his Jet Life imprint with Warner Bros. Records.  He also partnered with Fiend, who released his second album Pilot Talk. His third album, Pilot Talk III, was released in December 2015. The new label was predominantly produced by Ski Beatz. Upon signing with Warner Bros. Records, Curren$y went back to his independent roots.

He built his career slowly, working as a member of the hip-hop group Young Money. Although he released a mixtape under the label, Curren$y never made his debut as a solo artist. The New Orleans native's relationship with Wiz Khalifa led him to release the album How Fly. However, this album was not a success and he admits that he was feeling empty.

In addition to his own independent projects, Curren$y has collaborated with several other artists. He has worked with Wiz Khalifa, the Alchemist, and Cardo. In addition to working with these artists, he has also collaborated with Freddie Gibbs and Harry Fraud. He has also released more than 60 projects. Unlike many young rappers, Curren$y releases his music independently, and he has continued to grow as a songwriter.

Aside from the album, Curren$y has also released several mixtapes. His fourth album, Pilot Talk II, was released in November of 2010 and features songs with Raekwon and others. During 2008, he was recognized as an XXL Freshman, and he was one of the hottest rappers of the year. His mixtapes include 'Fear and Loathing in New Orleans' and 'Fast Times at Ridgemont Fly'.

The third album, Pilot Talk, was released on July 13, 2010. It features most of the songs produced by Ski Beatz. In interviews with XXL and Complex Magazine, the rapper has stated that he does not use a rapping team.

Today Curren$y is a highly successful independent artist with his own niche following.
