Curren$y – Return to the Winner’s Circle (Mixtape)

January 3, 2011

I’m putting this up because Curren$y is in a class with a select few where I like them so much right now I’ll post up their new music whether I’ve fully formed an opinion on it or not.  I’ve been listening to this for the past few hours and to be honest it’s a little disappointing compared to his ’10 output (Smokee Robinson and the two Pilot Talks – an admittedly high standard).  Off the bat, his flow are dope and the beats (Rick Ross – Live Fast, Die Young, Raekwon – Rainy Dayz, OutKast – Mainstream to name a few) are dope.  Lyrically, however, it’s a step down.  Is that to be expected when his subject matter is so narrow?  Depends, lots of rappers have a pretty shallow subject pool, but to me, Curren$y always stood out because of his nuances and attention to detail when talking about things.  Even though he raps in a very stream-of-conscious manner, his raps are always very fluent – if there was a 2011 (?) lazy pothead version of Biggie, it’d be something like Curren$y.  On this one he talks about all of the same things, but it lacks the spark that his other stuff did.

Not to say that it’s bad, he flows well enough that it sounds good, but I don’t think it’ll have the replayability of Pilot Talk 2.  I guess he’s put out so much music lately that it’s hard to complain (especially for something free), but dayum, I’m trying to get that new new, y’know???  Tracklist and mixtape DL after the jump.
