Curren$y: A (2)Dope FreEPMay 20, 2010 • By Meka
I'll be honest: I originally wasn't feeling the Hot Spitta back when he used to roll with Lil Wayne as one of the original members of his Young Money clique. Wasn't feeling him too much when he struck out on his own either with fellow skater Terry Kennedy and Fly Society, despite eskay's non-stop co-signs. Hell, I even reviewed This Ain't No Mixtape and gave it an "L" rating in XXL because of, despite the dope beats behind it, the limited subject matter: women, weed and wealth. Thought it got a bit boring after a while.
It was when he linked up with Wiz Khalifa for How Fly when caught my attention. Sure, it was the same old talk about women, weed and wealth, but this time around it wasn't boring, the songs were mad catchy and the beats got better. Then he started messing around with GFCNY, DD172, Ski Beatz and Creative Control, and I finally became a fan.
Which brings me to this latest (2)Dope FreEP I decided to put together, featuring some of my favorite songs from Curren$y. Nowhere near a comprehensive catalog, these are just the singles I have in my iPod I made a playlist out of. See, it's alright to sleep on an artist, because eventually you wake up. I'll admit, I was dozing off, and you shouldn't too.
