"Hazy, per usual"

Download the mix HERE

Note: In an effort to counteract what Amp subjected you to earlier today (that Joomane shit), I thought it would be a good idea to resurrect an old post from the blog. Although Curren$y and Joomane share few things in common – they look a little slow and they are proficient at getting money – its what they choose to do with the money that speaks volumes. I’ll just say that being Coogi’s sole customer in 2011 is a ridiculous thing. Anyway, you can call this”looks like he’s retarded rap.” Still, it beats Lupe’s “recycling bin rap.” Enjoy.

Curren$y started out with No Limit records, but I first heard him once he moved over to Cash Money around 2005- 2006.  I remember downloading Lil’ Wayne’s Dedication 1 in order to hear Wayne’s alleged improvement from wack “wobbledy wobbledy” rapper to legit rhyme spitter. For me, however, Curren$y ended up stealing the show, as his verses, solo tracks, and hooks on the 28 track project (Wayne was very generous with the features) caught my attention. In fact, I flat out thought then (and still do now) that Curren$y was the superior rapper.

Eventually, Curren$y struck out on his own; He formed one crew (Fly Society), then another (J.E.T.S.), dropped a million songs (where you can clearly hear his growth/artistic development), became a cult favorite, and is now a fairly popular rapper with his own niche in the game.  Without running the risk of sounding pedantic, one could say that his work has gotten a more insular and abstract over time.  Curiously, he also doesn’t seem to aim for the traditional rap success signifiers anymore— probably because he’s too damned high.

Anyway, consider this random collection of songs an introduction for novices attempting to track Curren$y’s career up til now, or call it some of my favorite tracks. This is far from exhaustive, but if you’re interested in hearing more, go do your own fucking research, you lazy runt!

Or, if ask nicely in the comments, maybe I’ll consider it… [secret – I won’t].

Track Listing

Breathe Freestyle (off Young Money Dedication Mixtape) – pretty standard subject matter at this point.

Young Money (off Young Money Dedication Mixtape) – Ditto.

Where Da Cash At featuring Lil’ Wayne & Remy Ma (originally heard on Wayne’s Dedication 2) – alleged single for what was to be Curren$y’s debut album with Young Money.

Animal Freestyle (off the Independence Day mixtape) – Curren$y’s first post-Cash Money mixtape.  This track serves as a bit of a manifesto for his next moves.

Paternity Test (off Independence Day) – A really well done and hilarious story track.

Movie Writers, Business Men & Gangsters featuring Marcelo (off Fear & Loathing in New Orleans) – The beginning of his insane mixtape run.  A freestyle over a traditional Southern beat [Feds Takin’ Pictures].

Mandatory (off Super Tecmo Bowl) – A freestyle over an old Duck Down beat (Buck ‘Em Down Remix) and one of the first tracks where his focus starts shifting to Weed and your Woman.

The Only Thing That Matters featuring Street Wiz – I forget where this is from, but it’s definitely from his Terry Kennedy/Fly Society era.  Most of that stuff is forgettable.

Let’s Get It Crackin’ featuring Nate Dogg and Nijay – Origins unknown, but he was clearly aiming for the charts on this.  Not a bad effort, but nothing like the guy we know now.  I’m guessing it’s a Cash Money-era throwaway.  He even talks about not smoking that much.  Riiiiight…

Lost In Transit – Also off Fear and Loathing; this track seems to hint at his shift towards more abstract beats.

Car Service (off How Fly with Wiz Khalifa) – a joint mixtape with his fellow stoner.  This is one of the highlights off that project and the beginning of what is probably going to be a long artistic link between the two of them.

Tokyo Drift (off Jet Files) – Another really cool/weird beat.  I think it was done by Big Chop– a name I think I recognize from the Cash Money-era.  That’s a lot of thinking. Jet Files dropped after his first independent/digital solo project, This Is Not A Mixtape. SN: I lost my copy of This Is Not A Mixtape and I bought that shit too.  Fucking computers…

Smash On O’Leary (off Smokee Robinson) – At this point, the weedhead was in full effect.  This mixtape was sort of a tie-in to coincide the Saints making the Super Bowl.  At this point, He sort of quit dropping mixtapes at a prodigious rate, so this was a one off project.

Glass House with Big KRIT and Wiz Khalifa (off Kush & OJKRIT Wuz Here) – A really good collaboration that introduced me to Big KRIT, another recent favorite of mine. Might be my favorite track from 2010.

Prioritize (Beeper Bill) with Nesby Phips (off Pilot Talk) – It’s here for 3 reasons: first- it marks Curren$y’s collaboration with an interesting new cat in Phips; second- it’s off his major debut (Def Jam/Dame Dash); and, third- it’s fucking great.

King Kong (off Pilot Talk) – The first single. Produced by Ski Beatz. Probably the culmination of his shift towards more abstract work.

Michael Knight (off Pilot Talk 2) – More of the same weird, pothead, braggart rap. Also produced by Ski Beatz.

Ova n Out with Trademark Da Skydiver (off Issue 2: Supervillain) – Trademark is one of the J.E.T.S..  He probably has a more conventional style than Curren$y, but they talk about the same shit and work well together. Besides, what better way to end a tape than with a song titled “Over and Out?”

    It’s pretty interesting how Curren$y was the link between Wayne’s growth [some would say recession, but they’re wrong] as a rapper and subsequent rise to fame and Wiz’ rise to fame as well.

    It’s be interesting if someone actually made a point of looking into his influence on both and whether it was a key ingredient to their success. He kind of seems like one of those guys destined to never be famous himself but influence other stars.

    I wanted to do this around last year but honestly up until recently I hated Curren$y’s voice when it wasn’t over Ski Beatz’ stuff. That and life kind of got in the way.

    Anyway, good job Deen!

    nicely surpising, couple tracks might get a few more spins than Jim would usually get, most of it is listenable (i mean this in a good way).

    so for an album in 2011, a few good tracks that will be added tot he shuffle.

    ——————————–

    He’s a much better rapper [Wiz isn’t much of an MC], and overall the beats on Pilot Talk are better than Kush&OJ’s beats.

    But Wiz can sing hooks better than anyone right now IMO, and his beats the cheap synth-based stuff people love right now.

    Therein lies the reason for Wiz’ fame and Curren$y’s lack thereof.

    so i consider it pretty good. you did a helluva a review tho (not to inflate your ego, but its true). helped that it was a similar perspective going in.

    maybe it was the features and beats, but I think Jimi is giving a little more effort in his lines.

    maybe BlackRoc kicked him into gear

    No doubt some good beats there [especially In the But, Never Been, Spotlight IMO], I just meant the overall sophistication of a lot of the sounds used. They’re great beats but they don’t sound like A-List producers did them [compare to the songs he did with the Swedish guys].

    I agree with the last part here. I think Spitta will do fine where he is now, he doesn’t need any pressure to make a popular album.

    How was the verse? Did he spit it yet, or are they still working?

    JihaD

  121. ” Did he spit it yet ”

    He tried to. But only Hav caught it because the beat is too loud.

    I think they’re both done. Alchemist said Hav was in the other room and he came through couple minutes before P spit his verse.

    And he just started rapping again as I type this.

    And I still can’t hear shit.

    smh.

  122. Jay-Z always finishes last when he raps with Uncle Face and Beans

    Guess Who’s Back>>>>>

  123. Apparently I made Ms. Marin upset, ya’ll.

    SMH.

  124. Nice set up you gentlemen have over here. This was a great piece. I’m definitely downloading the mix since I basically didn’t really know a thing about Curren$y outside of his studio albums. This was very informative. Well done Mobb Deen.

    Hell, I’m just happy P still writes his lyrics down. Most niggas woulda tried to Big they shit and not write nothing down.

    ^^Professional. Nice write ups as well as your standard MP3 plus Pic format. And you’re getting 100+ comments already. I’d say that’s a win. Just need to ensure the site is updated regularly and you’ll make a dint in cyberspace.

  135. Thanks for this, dl now. I like a lot of currensy’s older shit now but his verse on Where Da Cash At always put me to sleep.

    gbmoneylong, keep er lit.
