How long is Curren$y capable of making smooth, laid back, weed-induced party raps ? I mean, it has to become played out at some point. Right? Wrong. If RAWSE can make the same song over and over again, with the same Lex Luger beat, same coke talk, and name-dropping whoever he thinks he is this month, then who is to say Curren$y can’t continue to do his thing ? As long as people keep smoking pot, they will require a proper soundtrack to it (Dude, you gotta hear that Covert Coup on weed?). Spitta has been on an unbelievable roll lately, dropping quality kush music at a pace reminiscent of Wayne in ’07. Between the Pilot Talk series, which features some of the best shit Ski has done in years, to mixtapes with all Alchemist beats, it’s kinda hard to fuck up. And, from the looks of things, the JetLife is showing no sign of slowing down, with 3 more projects due by the year’s end that we can only assume will feature more crack encrusted production based on this first leak from Curren$y’s next project, Weekend at Burnies. Surprisingly, he actually keeps the weed references to a minimum here, and raps about fucking someone’s bitch. (no #basedGod) Who cares ? Just Enjoy This Shit.

So we’re only a few days away from the release of Covert Coupe, and each song that has leaked has increased my expectations for this shit. I’m not normally a fan of Freddie, but he spazzed on this one. Alchemist doesn’t disappoint, and at this point, i almost feel stupid for wondering if his production style would mesh with Spitta’s laid back weed raps. They mesh. They mesh real well.
Covert Coupe drops 4/20
Pilot Talk 1 & 2 were both on my list of last year’s best, but i can’t help but wonder if Curren$y is gonna be able to have the same result with Covert Coupe without the help of Ski… Then again, this project is supposed to be produced entirely by the H.K.I.C, Alchemist, so I think it’s safe to say you can expect some crack capsules. After last week’s leak and now this one, I’m pretty much sold on this project. As much as it pains me to think of Dilla or RZA getting bumped, it seems like Alc is coming for one of those spots on the GOAT list. He’s maintaining his greatness, and the other top notch producers are either not here to keep up, or not dropping product consistently enough to keep up with Alan. This tape is gonna be a problem.
Covert Coupe drops 4/20
Twitter leak from Currensy. First song off Covert Coup.
Point Blank: Alan the Chemist is a monster on the boards. The fact they are about to give something this level of quality for FREE should be an excellent signal for all Freddie Gibbs fans and Mobb Deep fans, as both parties are much better rappers, and I am anticipating much better than what Currensy will bring to the table.
Be clear tho, Currensy got kinda busy on this. I wasn’t too impressed with Pilot Talk 1 or 2, but I am excited to hear this, as the last full length Alchemist project was the Gangrene EP w/ Oh No, and I’ve yet to find a rapper I couldn’t enjoy over an Alchemist beat.
