38 new piano and horn laced, dirty rotten joints to wave out your car windows. Wiz Khalifa guests on “Silence,” says he feels like he’s on vacation even when he’s in his town. This is long tripping, jet infused music, enough at least for one hell of a night into one hell of a morning. Currensy told Complex that his pushed-back album (and accompanying short film Muscle Car Chronicles will be released, through BlueRoc and the dealings I had to Dame Dash. I recorded that before I did Pilot Talk I or II. We’ll put it out this summer, we’re just trying to find the right date.”
