Video: Curren$y Talks Covert Coup Joint LP With Alchemist, Possible Prodigy Collab

Spitta talks to VIBE about his Covert Coup project with Alchemist, which led to a Prodigy phonecall right before he came home, reuniting with Wiz on “Rooftops”, and plans for a How Fly sequel mixtape.

On Covert Coup:

When you’re friends with somebody you gotta figure out how you’re gonna pick some money up with them. He’s my friend, he understood what I was trying to do. And I was able to convey to him that what I was trying to do could be done more effectively with his beats. And he believed in what I was trying to do so much, he knew if that was what was going to put it at this level, then here you go. That was an alley-oop right there. Everybody in the industry knows how much an Alchemist beat costs. To get a double digit number of Alchemist beats for free is a sacrifice made.

We’re putting it out for free on April 20, a little 4:20 thing. We just can’t call it a mixtape because it’s all original music. Smoke DZA, Fiend, and Freddie Gibbs are all on there. It’s just ten records, more of the same of what I do. I want to release an instrumental version too. I think Alchemist needs to put those beats out.

On “Rooftops”:

Dude did that for Nate Dogg. This is before Nate Dogg passed. We was in the house singing all kinds of crazy Nate Dogg hooks. Nate Dogg was fine as far as we were concerned. I was in Wiz’s house in L.A. right after the Warner deal was done, it was after the Superbowl. He had to turn [the album] in on February 12, so I think we did that on February 10. He already had the hook laid when I got there. He told me like, ‘Yo, this is my fuckin’ Nate Dogg record.’

  8. E aka Mac with the Cheese Says:

    “Men are possessed by the myth of the pickup,” says David Grazian, Ph.D., an associate professor of sociology at the University of Pennsylvania and the author of On the Make: The Hustle of Urban Nightlife. It’s in their heads that these bars and clubs are “teeming with anonymous females who are dying to have sex with any guy who is confident enough to talk to them.” The reality is that less than 6 percent of women report having had sex with their partners within 2 days or less of meeting them, and less than 20 percent of adults say they first met their most recent sexual partner in a bar. Perhaps it’s the nasty stigma of nightlife: A survey of 1,034 women by StrategyOne, a market research agency, reveals that nearly one in four women would be embarrassed to admit that she met a mate in a bar.
