Puff. Puff. Pass: Curren$y Releases New Mixtape
New Orleans rapper Curren$y stays high (no pun intended) up on the totem pole of mixtape releases and is quickly jetting to the top of the hip hop game. His latest mixtape, Smokee Robinson, is produced and backed by one of hip hop’s most successful DJs and producers Don Cannon. The mixtape was released the night of Super Bowl XLIV in which Curren$y’s home team, the New Orleans Saints, won their first ever NFL championship beating the Indianapolis Colts 31-17. The win was only the icing on the cake for Curren$y’s recent release and makes the mixtape even that more special for him.
Curren$y is one of the few rappers to stay true to himself with a distinctive flow and fashion sense. He is quickly gaining a buzz, leaving an impressive mark on the Internet scene via blogs, videos, and social networking sites but all of the above did not happen overnight.
As a teenager, he was signed to Master P’s No Limit Records and then in 2005 he signed with newly convicted felon Lil Wayne and his label Young Money Entertainment, where he remained until 2007. While at Young Money, Curren$y scored a minor hit with “Where the Cash At?” which featured Lil Wayne and female emcee Remy Ma. More notably, he spearheaded the successful Fly Society, a clothing and music company, with skateboarder Terry Kennedy.
Smokee Robinson is bound to be one of the most talked about mixtapes this year and is going to prepare the rapper for a smooth landing in households when his debut full length album, The Grand Scheme of Things, drops later this year. Smokee Robinson features noteworthy appearances from Wiz Khalifa, Nipsey Hus$$le, Big Sean, Chip the Ripper, and more. With the release of a number of mixtapes on his own, Curren$y has spread his wings and is flying at a good altitude in this game and only knows one way to go and that is to the top.
Smokee Robinson had an impressive 96,000 downloads within the first 14 hours of its release.
