Curren$y is one of my favorite rappers out and an OG in the music community, so I always tend to watch his new interviews, but his new interview with Drink Champs might be his best interview to date. NORE & DJ EFN asked Curren$y about plenty of topics including his Jet Life label, how he created his own strain of marijuana, the new generation of rappers, New Orleans, No Limit Records, Kanye West, Cash Money Records, Dame Dash, his cult-like fan base, independent versus working with major label, when he first met Smoke DZA, starting a podcast of his own, YBN Cordae & Shoreline Mafia, New Orleans, owning a burger restaurant, psychedelics, his friendship with Wiz Khalifa, funny stories from Jamaica and so much more.

Gang Starr Bass Loop Mashup – [Brady Watt]

In a wild turn of events… something I’d never thought I’d say in 2019… I can’t wait for this new Gang Starr album. After the release of “Family & Loyalty”  which is equipped with a stellar feature from J.Cole (another one), I’ve been anxiously awaiting more news regarding the historic album. Still waiting for official word, but keeping the hype train rolling, Brady Watt steps in with an amazing bass loop mashup of that highlights some Gang Starr’s most legendary cuts. Who better than the bassist in DJ Premier’s live band (who is also signed to Premo’s TTT label as a solo artist) to takes us down memory lane? Using a loop machine, he intricately weaves together the basslines for hits like “Full Clip,” “Mass Appeal,” and more. Obviously its incredible demonstration of Watt’s talent–which is why he’s also supplied basslines to the likes of Curren$y, Joey Badass, and Talib just to name a few–but it’s also a testament to DJ Premier’s musicianship. Personally, when it comes to Premo’s legacy, I always focus on the samples and scratches but hearing all these amazing baselines meshed together is a great reminder of how intricate and complete Premo’s compositions are and gets me even more …

Our 50 Favorite Wiz Khalifa Songs

In the music world, influence manifests itself in many different ways. Whether it be sonically — changing the sounds that artists use and often creating some sort of new trend and/or subgenre in the process — or aesthetically — changing the “cool” styles in music and the lifestyles that artists speak about in their songs — influence can arrive packaged as a quick viral moment or a lasting flame, both of which hold value in their own rights.  Pittsburgh’s own, the Taylor Gang representative himself, Wiz Khalifa, is one of the rare talents who comes around and entirely shifts the culture in both of the aforementioned ways. Especially when he first came out, Wiz’s lanky, tattooed build and effortlessly cool stoner lifestyle made him a genuinely alluring artist, and while his personal style (snapbacks, the dyed patch of hair, etc.) was worthy of mention, the music was there to back it all up. Simply put, Wiz’s style, both on the mic and off, quickly set a standard for creatives and other artists to congregate toward, marking him as one of music’s most underrated culture-shifters of the last decade or so. Even further, beyond the influence that Wiz has had on a …

Grand – [Curren$y]

Curren$y is a blue-chip kind of artist. For years now, he’s been one of the most consistent in the game, dropping hazy, soulful gems that demand to be thrown on repeat for hours at a time. Today, the Spitta himself adds to this legacy with yet another slow-burning anthem entitled “Grand”. As noted in the title, this track is “grand” in its presence, allowing Curren$y to black out over the smooth instrumental with his signature, ever-so-relaxed cadences. He’s a lifestyle rapper at heart, and by simply describing what his day-to-day life consists of, Curren$y is sure to grab the attention of everyone who looks his way. “Grand” is an addictive gem from the captain himself, so be sure to stream the single below and keep an eye out for more from Curren$y hopefully on the way!

FETTI – [Curren$y] [Freddie Gibbs] & [The Alchemist]

The wait is over, Fetti is here. Curren$y, Freddie Gibbs and The Alchemist’s long awaited project is out and it was well well worth the wait. From the moment it starts the project meets the sonic expectation placed on such a noteworthy collaboration. The chemistry is palpable, the bars are calculated and the production, is nothing short of classic. The project doesn’t over stay its welcome, at nine tracks totaling 24-minutes long, Fetti has major replay value. The trio flex their dynamic ability delivering an array of songs varying in mood, both lyrically and production wise. Songs like “Location Remote” and “Willie Lloyd” are grittier while “Saturday Night Special” and “Now & Later Gators” showcase the softer side of Gibbs and Curren$y. Listen to, Fetti below and tell us what you think of the Freddie Gibbs, Curren$y and The Alchemist collaboration in the comment section!
