Since we’re on a mental and physical vacation this week — I’m in Connecticut, Shannon’s in New Jersey, then London and Paris, and Sherry’s in Adele’s favorite city — we’re serving up Parlour’s Best of 2011! Each day this week, you’ll get a chance to reminisce on what made us all laugh, cry and suck our teeth during the last 12 months. I dug up a few of our faves! Ready?
It’s no secret that I heart Curren$y, have since he first popped up on my radar with the “Where Da Cash At?” (RIP Remy Ma’s career … ). I chatted with the New Orleans native about a 40,000 albums that he was planning to release this year and of course I asked him about his bestie Wiz Khalifa‘s then-new relationship with Amber Rose. Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend has always been interesting to us Parlour girls, at first because her outfits were fierce but then because of her intellectual implications — a woman can’t be bi-sexual and date a man without being label a “lesbian”? The hell … — so when I asked Curren$y about Amber, his response cracked me up. Read the rest
I caught up with Curren$y Spitta, born Mr. Shante Franklin, this week about the many albums he’s releasing this year — including Covert Coup with Alchemist, Muscle Car Chronicles and Pilot Talk III — and a new project with a certain Cool Kid. Spitta even weighed in (kinda) on bestie Wiz Khalifa’s new girlfriend Amber Rose and finding his groove as a hair stylist. Jet Life.
PARLOUR: Are you still signed to Damon Dash’s Roc-A-Fella label now that you’ve joined Warner Music Group?
Curren$y: No, Dame’s my homeboy. The upcoming Muscle Car Chronicles album is Dame’s project but Covert Coup, Weekend At Burnie’s, Verde Terrace, a mixtape with DJ Drama, and the series that I’m going to do with Chuck Inglish aren’t.
Chuck Inglish, of The Cool Kids?
He’s producing a project for me called Puff Daddy, a play on words … It was Diddy approved. We talked to him at SXSW and that will definitely come through the Warner Brothers umbrella as well. So you knew before I told [Warner executive] Todd Moscowitz, it’s a fucking exclusive!
