It may seem like Curren$y shares the same lane as any other 420 friendly rapper, but records like “This Is The Life” clearly widen the gap between him and the rest of the pack. Where similar artists have dumbed down their flow to a repetitive eight-count thud, Spitta’s a lyrical well filled with metaphors, wordplay and a wide variety of different cadences. Tack all of those elements on a soft, soothing beat by Monsta Beatz and an equally mellow, catchy hook and you have arguably the best leak of his street album Weekend At Burnie’s set to drop on the fast approaching June 28th.
