Curren$y Dishes On Five Of His Favorite Films

Every Cheech And Chong Film, 1978-Present
Curren$y: All the Cheech and Chong films are dope to me.

Janky Promoters, 2009
Curren$y: I think anyone in the industry, any rapper, has seen and has fallen in love with the movie Janky Promoters with Ice Cube and Mike Epps. Young Jeezy’s in there for a little bit. You have to check it out.

Layer Cake, 2004
Curren$y: Layer Cake is a good one. It’s the dude from 007 (Daniel Craig as XXXX). He plays a drug dealer. Kinda like one foot in, one foot out drug dealer. I think a lot of people can relate to that. A lot of people are like, one foot in, one foot [out]. Tryna maintain, but still you gotta do the occasional dirty thing to make ends meet. And even though he [XXXX] tried to walk as straight of a line as he could in the crooked game, the consequences are still real and he had to deal with them. So there’s life lessons in that movie. And one of the main bosses in the movie is driving a Bentley and it made me buy one when I was on tour. My leg was broken and I watched that movie on the bus and it influenced that clutch purchase. [Speaking of cars, Curren$y has 13 and is working on a 14th. He says his favorite at the moment is a 1976 Caprice lowrider that he put hydraulics on]
