Curren$y's career flight plan has not come without a few layovers along his burgeoning career. Initially signed to fellow New Orleans rapper C-Murder's Tru Records in 2001, Curren$y was brought over to Master P's New No Limit Records in 2002 after the founder was sentenced to jail. From 2004-2007, Curren$y enjoyed a stint on Cash Money Records as part of Lil Wayne's Young Money Entertainment before venturing out on his own, releasing a series of mixtapes and focusing on his Jet Life apparell and lifestyle brand.

In 2009, the effort paid off as Curren$y, in recognition of his talent and drive, was hand-picked to grace the cover of XXL's "Top 10 Freshman" issue amongst the likes of B.O.B, Kid Cudi, Wale and others.

Later that year, the now independent rapper released his debut album This Ain't No Mixtape and the follow-up Jet Files through Amalgam Digital.

In 2010, Curren$y released his Pilot Talk and Pilot Talk II albums through Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder Damon Dash's BluRoc Records distributed by Def Jam Recordings. The two mixtapes moved an unprecedented 40K and 30K sold units with minimal effort and has helped the talented lyricist generate over $750K in touring on his own.

Curren$y is now gearing up to release his fifth and sixth studio albums Muscle Car Chronicles and the anticipated Pilot Talk III. Fans eager for the new music can should keep an ear out for a new mixtape produced by infamous producer Alchemist (Eminem, Nas, Snoop Dogg, Ghostface Killah) entitled Covert Coup which will be available April 19th on iTunes, just in time for the 4/20 holiday. The release of the mixtape will coincide with a promo tour that begins that night in New Orleans.

Above Grounds Kollection Founder and artist, Real Augustine out of Dallas, Tx. Originally Kenyan raised in Decautur, Ga brings a totally different sound to the culture. With influences ranging from the Ghetto mafia to Snoop Dogg, Augustine has a vibe that is unmatched, with a southern swagger mixed with nitty bars that is influenced from where hip hop was created based on. His fashion sense translates his cool, and screams, This guy is different, in a world full of following trends and less trendsetters.

In 2009 Thanksgiving, Augustine suffered a terrible loss. He lost his dad to cancer. Changed his whole childhood in a major way. Causing him to turn to the streets and start selling drugs. In search to make finances, at 17, an incident where Real was involved in a bad drug deal caused him to be stabbed centimeters away from his jugular vein, was only a miracle he survived. Since then he decided to put "all in a rhyme..." as he says, and record all he went through.
In full effect, he launched and started Above Grounds Kollection which he then published his first project "La Cosa Vera". "The Real Thing" in Italian, comes from love of Italian mob movies and stories, also named his dogs after the favorite actors in the genre of movies Pacino and Deniro. Even deeper 'La Cosa' was the street in Dallas that Augustine grew and became the man he is today.
