Curren$y brought Jet Life to New York City on Thursday night (January 3) with a sold-out show at SOBs. It was a feel-good, stoner's night. "Every motherf------g record is a smoke record," Spitta said, laughing, at one point.
Spitta performed a full set--while actively inhaling-- from his repertoire including his past Pilot Talk cuts and more recently, his studio release The Stoned Immaculate and the Harry Fraud-helmed EP, Cigarette Boats. "Why yall ain't pass me no joints?" the rapper joked with his rapt audience when he got onstage, taking a puff or two for good measure.
The immaculate stoner was joined by several familiar rap friends including Maybach Music Group's Stalley ("Address"), Styles P ("Lean") and Action Bronson for "Bird on a Wire." The latter kicked the mellow vibe up a few notches. Curren$y himself was markedly impressed with Bam Bam's verse, which ended as an acapella, musing "Damn. That was like smoking in my car."
"I'm going to go eat f---ing sandwiches and do drugs!" Bronson hilariously proclaimed as he left the stage. Never a dull moment with that guy. Lupe Fiasco and Mickey Factz also hopped up on stage at one point, just to support and unfortunately, not spit their own verses.
Always a man among his fans, Spitta ended the night by staying onstage and signing autographs and taking flicks. The feeling of love was mutual. "Hella fun at SOB's tonight...." Curren$y tweeted afterwards.
Spitta is on tour throughout this month with stops in Las Vegas and his native New Orleans.
