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.
