The Pilot Talk rapper was hosting an Instagram Live with fans when Electronica popped up in the comment section to remind his Louisiana brethren they have an album to work on. The two have worked in the past but have never dropped a full-length project.
To show fans it wasn’t just a ruse, Curren$y took a screenshot of the comment and shared it as a post on his IG feed. He also added a cap emoji to toy with fans.
“I’m still in Mexico. We still got a album to record and a movie to shoot on levee,” Jay Elect commented during the Instagram Live.

The New Orleans natives got together on the song “AD6” off of Spitta’s Pilot Talk 4, which dropped last year. Curren$y was so excited to have gotten the song done, he jumped on Twitter to show his excitement and appreciation over Jay lacing him up with some heat.
“J A Y E L E C T R O N I C A lost his mind … glad we’re buddies man…dude is out of control with rap …thanks for the verse man…,” Curren$y tweeted. “You are a source of motivation for me man… I’ll carry this inspiration into 2022 and bring it@to the studio errrday let’s fuckin go.. #pilottalk4.”
Jay Electronica is no stranger to releasing joint efforts, as he released one alongside JAY-Z in 2020 as his debut album titled A Written Testimony. The album debuted at No. 12 on the US Billboard 200 and also received a nomination for Best Rap Album at the 2021 Grammy Awards.
Curren$y, on the other hand, is a regular at dropping collaborative albums. He’s dropped projects with The Alchemist, Freddie Gibbs, Wiz Khalifa, Statik Selektah, Harry Fraud and more. His last collaborative effort came this year with albums alongside Alchemist and Fuse, respectively.
Jay Electronica recently paid homage to Mac Miller, with whom he collaborated on the 2013 track “Suplexes Inside of Complexes and Duplexes,” a fan favorite from the Pittsburgh rapper’s sophomore album Watching Movies with the Sound Off.
