Curren$y, Verde Terrace

Back already? Less than two months after dropping Weekend at Burnies, his Warner Bros. label debut, Curren$y has come through with Verde Terrace, a 14 track mixtape hosted by Gangsta Grillz top dog, DJ Drama. Since the release of Pilot Talk in July of 2010, Jet Life Captain Curren$y has been an absolute workhorse, with this his sixth project of the past 13 months.

On Verde Terrace, Spitta tackles a variety of instrumentals, ranging from original production to putting his spin on other artists’ records. In typical Spitta fashion, he elects not to rap over the current “industry” beats, instead opting to ride out on a smorgasbord of records, ranging from Outkast’s “Elevators,” to Max B’s “Why You Do That,” to Jay-Z’s “Stick 2 the Script.”

The New Orleans native flexes his adaptability throughout the mixtape, coasting through some high-octane tracks like “Pinifarina” and “Car Talk,” that take him out of his generally sedated element. While the subject matter hasn’t changed much from weed, cars, and aviation, his delivery and cleverness are as sharp as ever. Curren$y isn’t an artist who stands out because of what he talks about, but rather because of how he talks about it. On “Pinafarina,” a remix of Maybach Music Group’s “Pandemonium,” he delivers a wordplay clinic, rapping, “Spitta get lifted like sanctions/Vocabulary gangsta/My ink pen has shanked men.”

Despite being a strong compilation of tracks individually, Verde Terrace lacks the cohesive magic that Curren$y has found on projects on which he teams up exclusively with one producer. Nevertheless, with Spitta continuing to release such quality music on such a consistent basis, the former XXL Freshman is quietly putting together one of the more impressive catalogs around. Though he may still be flying under the radar of the mainstream, Curren$y seems content just to be in flight. Either way, the jets aren’t landing anytime soon. —Neil Martinez-Belkin

    So…. That “Free Bricks” mixtape by Gucci Mane and Future scored higher that Spitta? False.

    • dario kantardzic

      xxl is on some crystal meth shit to call this L

  • haha

    L? come onnnnn hahah this is the best shit of the month at least

  • http://crsny.tumblr.com mike

    haahah werd to that josh, wtf

  • Kevin

    There’s so many mixtapes on here that got ranked higher than this, but don’t deserve it.

    This wasn’t his best, but deserves an XL.

  • young thug

    this should have been rated higher. especially for originality. spitta is unparalleled when it comes to originality!

    • iheartnmb

      DEFINITELY should have gotten an XXL for being the first rapper to spit about the good life – how could a rapper who talks about money be given anything other than an XXL

      -do you fools listen to the music or do you just skim through it? –Jay-z

      -do you even read the review or do you just read the rating at the top? –iheartnmb

      the dude bigs Currensy up the whole review and all you focus on is a 5-point scale – sack up you lil girls

  • dismathis

    this is ridiculous… people at XXL must just not want Curren$y to get too many high rankings. this is on the same level as Covert Coup and Weekend At Burnies

    … and as said, his lyrics are sharpe as ever. this deserves nothing less than a “XL”

    • agree

      i agree with all of these comments except for people who give it a L

    • iheartnmb

      good call – you unraveled a huge conspiracy, XXL wants to impede Currensy’s successs; thats a good look for a hip hop magazine you’re mad smart

      “… and as said, his lyrics are sharpe as ever. this deserves nothing less than a “XL” ”

      -that has more typos than XXL has employees dedicated to sabotaging artists’ careers

  • rsakers

    mane he’s been a workhorse since independence day, and this shit is tighter than your little sister.

  • @arenasx

    L? “This jet life aint for everybody this this is reserved for us..” XXL obviously doesnt know how to comprehend the jet life.. Spittas verses probably go right over these drake jockin bitch ass journalist’s heads.. Jets fool.

    • iheartnmb

      seriously son? thats the line you choose to prove your point? – forget the jet life arenasx you livin a bugs life, buggin out dat is – there’s a reason “XXL’s “drake jockin bitch ass journalists” are writing reviews and you stickin to the comment section – get ya weight up not ya hate up

  • jake22

    fer real? currensy is the best rapper releasing music today. no offense to others but he just dominates with his wit, cleverness, and his complex rhyming structure. XXL status

  • HowToFly

    Get these dudes at XXL some high-quality kush or something. The mexican weed they are smoking is fuggin’ with their ears!
    Just Enjoy This Shit✈

  • AJ

    This mixtape is so ill. I’m totally in sync with Curren$y’s style. It clicks with me perfectly. Verde Terrace is better than a lot of LPs

  • lol

    XXL JUST DOESN’T UNDERSTAND THE JETLIFE

  • Apollo Moses

    Martinez-Belkin slippin. The lyrics on this disc outclass any other that’s been released this month. JOB and Pinafarina alone rock harder than of that other bull. Keep up with the thoughtful drops $pitta. Real JETS Fans appreciate it.

  • jack

    XXL it should be XL and you know he doing more work than others and Past others in many ways. He more than a Rapper
    He is the Peoples Rapper

  • SDAKAR

    THIS PICTURE IS FROM A OLD BRAZILIAN SONGWRITTER OF SAMBA , HIS NAME IS CARTOLA (RIP), FROM RIO DE JANEIRO AND HIS CATALOG IS LEGENDARY.

    I’M FROM BRAZIL ! ;)

  • Rocket Man

    What the fuck XXL ya’ll smoking some crack for sure. This was one of the best mixtapes put on the reviews section…All the beats were fucking sick and at least you have to respect Spitta’s work ethic.

  • http://www.facebook.com/L.Q.ENT L.Q.

    I’m a big Curren$y fan and believe that XXL rated this correctly. The beats were a lil lame and the originality was all in delivery and in the concepts of the mixtape. That’s about it…

  • FS87

    Who the heck did this review? U gotta b out ur mind!

  • keaton

    i used to be a big fan of xxl but when i see bullshit like this it breaks my heart. how you give meek mill wack ass an XL and not Spitta? thats like saying bow wow is better than jay-z. that shit dont add up and people at xxl need to let real hip hop heads listen to the albums and write the reviews cause in the words of kanye west ” MAN THIS SHIT IS FUCKIN RIDICULOUS”

  • JETS…FOOL

    Im so happy that the JETS movement is so large
    but for real all Spittas music is XXL no matter wat any blog or webiste says
    But remember Just Enjoy This Shit
    letss not worry bout wat anyones sayin pilots
    JOB

  • bugz

    idk why beats have more influence on da overall score than actual lyrics cuz dats why Free Bricks got an XL even tho lyrics and originality were both L but GODDAMMIT XXL!! yall fuckin up!

  • b

    this has to be a joke lol fuck xxl JETS NIGGUH

  • iamaaron

    they gave the same rating as lil b are you serious come now this was a xl at the least

  • JFK SAMBA

    Curren $ y using the extraordinary image of the album cover “Verde que te quero rosa” to the magnificent brazilian singer Cartola, bold and seem out of context.

  • AZ40

    The only real problem I could come up with is that as usual some of the tracks are too short, but I liked this waaay better than weekend at burnies

  • mase

    this is way better than just a “L”
    curren$y went hard as always

  • whiggas

    motherfucker took the cover from a brazilian classic samba album by cartola and didn’t pay shit for it. that shit ain’t gangsta, that’s just dumpster diving ghetto blood.

  • jetlife
