Curren$y: Fast Times At Ridgemont Fly

When I saw this guy’s name the first thing I thought was, “Damn! I was hoping the “$” sign being used as an “S” died along with Ma$e’s career.” Guess that was asking for too much.

Then when I popped in the mixtape and heard birds chirping and some old-school feel, goody-good music I thought, “Is this gonna be a mixtape for those ‘out loud and proud’ peeps?” But that wasn’t the case (Thank goodness). Instead I ended up listening to some pretty damn good hip-hop music.

I have to admit, the kid can flow something hard like Michael Phelps (I had to use the M. Phelps metaphor before these rappers get to it. Remember where you heard it first!).

From jumping on a extraordinary bubblegum-pop beat on “Modern Day Hippie” and making it listen-able, to going extra gutter on Busta’s “New York” track on “Roll My Shit.”

Other than the flow, son got some entertaining rhymes, too. On “The Good Part,” he says sh*t like, “Joe, they say flow I got the girls feenin’ / your hoe keep my name in her mouth now more than my seamen– see, man / you a little jackass like Wee-man /…”

Even his man, Trademark Da Skydiver, popped off something retarded on “Soundtrack To Success.”
The only fault I can see in Curren$y is that he’s similar to Ma$e more ways than the use of the “$.” A lot of people are gonna feel that their styles are similar from the way he raps to the tone of his voice at times.

But like I said, the flow is platanos and I hope that the young homie can keep the good music consistent.

Hottest Joint: “Brett Favre” and “Still That Nigga”

Weakest Joint: “Modern Day Hippie”

    Don’t sleep on this cat,he’s pretty dope. He used to rock with wayne and cash money but got tired of waiting because all attention has beeen and will only be on lil wayne over at cash money. I hope he gets signed and doesn’t get discouraged and starts making bullshit to get a deal.

  • http://xxlmag.com O

    Son definitely deserves a record deal. And you right, hopefully he doesn’t fall to the formula so many before him fell for just to get signed.

    ur trippin for sayin modern day hippie is the worst song on the mixtape….


    @ ch@d br0 chi// : your an idiot.
    @dMV hustler: banks and fab are wack as hell. this shit sends you to outer space, keep your mind open, you don’t even have to be high, the music takes you there. Too simple minded for it i guess. He’s stoned, how would you expect him to sound.
