Curren$y Explains 10 of His Most Creative Album & Mixtape Covers

Even though the New York Giants got to hoist the Lombardi Trophy on Super Bowl Sunday, Jets fans had cause for celebration as well (No, not those Jets…fool). Out of nowhere, one of hip-hop’s biggest studio rats, Curren$y, treated fans to a 5-track EP entitled Here,, a spur-of-the-moment project brought on by a sleepless night and a Steven King flick. Per usual, Spitta came correct with the EP’s artwork, delivering a visual equal parts bad-ass and puzzling. Then, on Tuesday of this week, the oft-delayed Muscle Car Chronicles hit stores. Fascinating covers are nothing new for Spitta, so XXL decided to catch up with the Jet Life pilot and get the scoop not only on Here, but also on some of his other most creative aesthetic choices, from This Ain’t No Mixtape to Pilot Talk and plenty more. —Neil Martinez-Belkin (@Neil_MB)
