You got artists that work hard, then you have Curren$y. Spitta has been putting out an insane amount of material in the past two years. Antennas turned his way with the release of “Pilot Talk” in 2010, only to turn around and drop the sequel 4 months later. Since then, he’s signed with Warner Bros, and INCREASED his already frantic pace of output. His previous release, “Weekend at Bernie’s” was dope, but it wasn’t the smack out the park we hoped it would be. Undeterred, Spitta kept working, and has returned with “The Stoned Immaculate.”
Warner labelmate Wale helps to open the LP with “What It Look Like,” over lush production, the two go in, in their own laid back way. J.U.S.T.J.C.E. League proves that they can upgrade anyone, as they provide production for a number of the album’s cuts, including the standout “Take You There,” featuring Marsha Ambrosius. Fellow chiefer Wiz Khalifa checks in for “No Squares,” and the collaboration has impressive results. Skateboard P jumps on the hook to the excellent “Chasin’ Papers.” And while “Jet Life” featuring K.R.I.T & Wiz is just flat out dope, it’s the collab with Tha Dogg Pound’s Daz that’s the most surpising moment on the LP. Spitta’s not a slouch when he’s going it solo either, as “Privacy Glass” “Showroom” and “Chandelier” are all dope as well.
I’m not exactly sure why Spitta hasn’t blown up to be as big as Wiz or 2 Chaninz just yet, but he surely deserves to be. The amount of star power that accompanies him on “The Stoned Immaculate” is proof that his peers admires what he’s doing. Let’s hope that he begins to get the attention of the masses, like he deserves.
