Part 1: Curren$y sits down with Ms. Drama to talk about his upcoming mixtape, Covert Coup, coming out on 4/20. He opens up about working with the Alchemist and how a three record collaboration turned into a full mixtape. Curren$y also discusses his association with Wiz Khalifa and Big Krit. He mentions how Krit was supposed to be on the upcoming mixtape – but didn’t make the deadline. He hints at another mixtape with Wiz in the future. On the note of his upcoming album, Curren$y explains he’s recording records – although there is no official name. In regards to his new label situation – Jet Life, he reveals that when he started in 2002 – this actually was the situation he has expected, but is now glad it came later since he has grown as an artist. Curren$y explains that his new situation “still feels independent”- although not when he has to get into his ferrari. In part 2 of the interview, Curren$y talks about his new Ferrari, Francesca, and people’s reactions to her. He explains the humor in having the car and why he felt it was time. In reference to his label situation, Curren$y explains that he will be adding his friends to his imprint since they have been grinding along with him. When asked to give advice to new artists coming out, specifically those showcased on the cover of XXL, he advises that they shouldn’t get caught up in the “blender” of the industry. Finally, after Curren$y gets the rundown of what happened to Chris Brown, he expresses his genuine surprise and offers that it “could’ve have been worse” and that we’ve seen [Chris'] work before.

“I’m am saden by the lost of my friend,brother,and teacher nate dogg we will all miss him .I remember going to nates house in woodland hills (it was the 1st time I have been in a house of that size over looking the whole valley) and I was saying to my self “wow he got all of this off of music.” At that time in my life I didn’t know music could do all that lol. I sat in his studio and played him like 29 beats and he could tell that I was amazed by him-his home-and his studio…so he turned to me and said “would you like a house like this?” Of course I said yes. Then he asked me how much I charge for beats, I told him $2,500 and he said in order to get a crib like this you need to move up to $15,000 a beat. At that time 15k was a lot to me! About a year later through God’s blessings I moved from moms crib to my own house on the same street as him. Around that that time we were working on the 213 album and I played Nate and Warren G the beat to the song that ended up being their “Joy Stick” single. Nate called me and asked how much I was going to charge them for the “Joy Stick” beat, I told him 15k…(why would I ever say that to him lol)…he then told me that the game he gave me to get my prices up to 15k actually costs 400k so let him get that beat and I will only owe him 385k lol. Nate if you hear me I’m siting in my car. On the side of the 118 in tears sending this to dev to post to let the world know that you were more than “nate dogg the hook man”…in my world you were and are a bleesing to and my kids and for that I will always love you and I will see you soon big bro and this small clip is for you Kenneth Crouch and I playing my favorite tune from you…neva leave me alone….Terrace Martin”

Chris Brown exploded in rage behind the scenes at “Good Morning America” this morning … smashing a window and storming out without a shirt … sources tell TMZ … and it was triggered by on-air questions about the Rihanna incident. ABC sources tell TMZ … Brown performed and was interviewed by Robin Roberts live from the Times Square studio when she began asking about the infamous incident. Brown tried to redirect the questions to focus on his album — but Roberts continued to ask about Brown’s legal issues stemming from the Rihanna incident. We’re told after the interview, Brown freaked out, storming into his dressing room and screaming so loud, the people in hair and makeup became alarmed and called security. We’re told Brown was out of control, and one source present tells us he smashed a window in his dressing room, and the glass shattered and some shards fell onto 43rd and Broadway. ABC security tells TMZ … the window was shattered with a chair. We’re told by the time security rushed the area, Brown had ripped off his shirt and left the building, blowing off another performance he was supposed to do for the ABC website. And sources say … on his way out of the building, Brown confronted a segment producer, got in his face and stared him down. People from the show got in between Chris and the producer to diffuse the situation. Remember — Brown is on probation for the felony beating and he’s required to obey all laws.
