The New Orleans rapper took to Facebook earlier this week to announce the release format and news that Pilot Talk 3 will only be available as a pre-order through his Jet Life website. The album, which will come bundled with a Jet Life shirt and Pilot Talk 3 look book, will come pre-loaded on the USB drive along with videos from the album.
While the album will be a USB-only affair, Curren$y hinted about plans to offer a stream of the record online around the time of release.

Curren$y follows in the footsteps of artists like Nipsey Hussle with the high-priced and limited release format.
Earlier this year, Hussle reportedly sold 60 copies of his latest album, Mailbox Money, at $1,000 apiece.
Hussle’s latest release followed another similar rollout in which he sold 1,000 copies of his album Crenshaw for a $100 each in 2013. Still, unlike Curren$y’s plans for Pilot Talk 3, Hussle offered both Mailbox Money and Crenshaw as free downloads in addition to the high-priced #Proud2Pay campaign offerings.
