UDPATE: Click “Watch Video” to view the brand new visuals for Jet Life.
Big money, international flights, nights of revelry, beautiful (and expensive) women, top-quality kush—it’s all part and parcel of what Curren$y calls the Jet Life. While the topics listed above have always been his bread and butter, the New Orleans rhymesayer takes it to the next level on the latest single off his next album and Warner Bros, debut, crafting a full-blown theme song and anthem for his burgeoning movement.

Big K.R.I.T. plays a crucial supporting role, contributing a flowed hook to go with his slow-rolling, sampled instrumental. Does this bleary-eyed yet luxurious banger leave you yearning to live the life described therein? To be frank, you probably can’t afford it—but you can get a little taste of what Curren$y enjoys on the day-to-day by bumping The Stoned Immaculate in your whip after it hits record stores and online retailers June 5.
