Shante Scott Franklin (born April 4, 1981), better known by his stage name Curren$y is anAmerican rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana. In 2002, Curren$y was signed to Master P‘s No Limit Records and was a member of the 504 Boyz. The song “Get Back“ by 504 Boyz Produced by Donald XL Robertson made it to the Malibu’s Most Wanted soundtrack. Curren$y appeared on 5 songs in Master P‘s Good Side, Bad Side album, released in 2004. Even though he was signed with No Limit, he represented C-Murders TRU label. Curren$y has several songs with incarcerated friend C-Murder, and was featured on the late Soulja Slim‘s album, Years Later.
Later on in 2004, Curren$y signed with Cash Money Records and Lil Wayne‘s Young Money Entertainment. He featured in Lil Wayne‘s Dedication, Dedication 2, The Suffix and several unreleased songs while with Young Money. He released a mixtape entitled Welcome Back in 2004. He was featured in Lil Wayne‘s “Grown Man” on Tha Carter II. While still at Young Money,Curren$y created Fly Society with skateboarder Terry Kennedy, first as a clothing company, then expanding to release music. He released the song, “Where da Cash At” as the lead single for hisYoung Money debut, Music To Fly To, in 2006, but had to deal with several push-backs and lack of promotion. In 2007, another mixtape was released entitled Life at 30,000 Feet. He remained with Young Money until late 2007. For several months throughout 2008, Curren$y released a series of mixtapes.
Fast Times At Rdigemont Fly is particular for its full sound, due to Curren$y’s dire love of the west coast and Dr. Dre beats. “Roll My Shit” and “Still That Nigga (In & Out)” both feature some of Dre’s top notch productions, with the later being the electrically bouncy highlight of 2001 “Still Dre”, the other being Busta’s jazzy anthem “New York”. Curren$y’s ear seems to be more focused on exotic, jazzy, g-funky beats. Occasionally switches his taste in favor of synth-central, like “Modern Day Hippie” or the horror keyboard bounce of “Brett Favre”, but Curren$y here proves he has a fantastic ear for beats.
