I noticed that a lot of people are quite indifferent when it comes to Curren$y. Most people understand that he is unique, but a lot of people won’t actually listen to his albums all the way through (B-Easy). I on the other hand really like what the dude is bringing to the game. He is taking serious chances with the production he chooses to rap over. He understands the history of the game and intends to be a leading force in the rebirth of the culture. With that being said, many people do not know just how big this guys discography actually is. I intend to let you guys have a chance to read a little bit about all of the mixtapes he has dropped (No retail albums, Homland Security has been kicking down doors as of late).
1. Sports Center Vol. 1
Here is the first mixtape Spitta released to the public. He was signed to No Limit at this time and his subject matter was pretty limited to flossing. The mixtape wasn’t really what we get out of work from Spitta normally. The stand out track is “Hott Spitta” (Lil’ Wayne kinda takes this one from him later on Dedication 2).
2. Welcome Back
This was the first project Curren$y released while on Young Money. It has a couple of nice tracks, but it is apparent Spitta hasn’t quite figured out his lane yet. Some of the tracks actually involve gun play which is far from the Spitta today.
3. G-Series Vol. 1 (with Mack Maine)
These two just got together to introduce themselves as Wayne’s crew.
4. Life At 30,000 Feet
Here is the tape that was released intending to garner a buzz for his debut on Young Money. Unfortunately this tape was extremely underrated, and its failure to amass a buzz is possibly the reason he split from YM.
5. Independence Day
He released this 4 months after announcing that he would no longer be with Wayne’s Young Money. Up to this point this was easily the best tape Spitta had put together.
6. Higher Than 30,000 Feet
This mixtape is where Curren$y really began to show his love for old school beats.
The thing that people have to notice is, Curren$y is challenging the norm. We can’t complain how the rap game is repetitive and boring and then not support those who are making good music by saying “Forget the wack music lets make something new”. That is exactly what Curren$y is doing.
