Jet Life


Listen to 1st Place (feat. Curren$y, Trademark Da Skydiver, Young Roddy & Mikey Rocks)

Curren$y, Trademark and Young Roddy didn’t just climb the ladder of success – they soared above it. The Jet Life movement took off after the success of Curren$y’s seminal album, “Pilot Talk” on which Trademark and Roddy’s skills were showcased on the hit “Roasted.” The crew quickly became recognized as one of the most dominant forces in independent hip-hop, culminating in Curren$y releasing his last album, Weekend At Burnie’s on Warner Bros. The crew kept a steady incline as they performed in 35 cities as part of last year's Smoker’s Club Tour. They recently released the album "Jet World Order" on Jets International / iHipHop Distribution, which showcased the entire crew, consisting of Curren$y, Trademark, Young Roddy, Smoke DZA, Mikey Rocks, Fiend, Corner Boy P, and Street Wiz.
