There were a lot of mixtapes and EPs of that nature to drop on Valentine’s Day, and part of that was the ever-dropping-music-rapper, Currensy. Honestly, if you don’t know the history of Currensy just releasing albums and mixtapes out of the blue on a regular basis without warning, then you need to get familiar. I never would have thought that I’d see myself as a big Currensy fan, because he’s “meant for weed smokers only”, which I think is stupid, because you can enjoy music whether or not you’re under the influence. What I like about Spitta beyond his style, is that all of his projects that I’ve heard have always had a consistency of good beats to go with what’s being put out. A lot of that is soul sample heavy, because that’s just what his niche is. You’re not going to hear him on a highly amplified trap inspired beat, and I hope it stays that way.
I don’t know a whole lot about Thelonious Martin, but he gave Currensy some serious beats on this mixtape that made it smooth from start to finish (along with contributions from other great producers, Cardo & Cookin’ Soul to name a couple). Along with some good features from the likes of Action Bronson, Freddie Gibbs, B-Real, and Smoke DZA (to name a few), this is yet again a solid project. The theme surrounding one of my favourite movies of all time, The Godfather, was also a factor in what made this an enjoyable tape for me to groove to, and I’m pretty sure a lot of people will enjoy this as well. Check it out, and check out the rest of his work while you’re at it if you haven’t already.
