Shante Scott Franklin (born April 4, 1981), better known by his stage name Curren$y is an American rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana. In 2002, Curren$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$y released a series of mixtapes.
The title of this 2008 release is an allusion to a term coined by Hunter S. Thompson in a book called Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. It refers to a hell of a night motivated by the excessive consumption and abuse of substances. It’s only fitting, seeing as Spitta’s a full-time pothead, as made evident by effortless, yet adroit, laid-back flow and mellifluous lyrics. With slight alteration of the original Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas movie poster, Curren$y puts himself in one reflection and New Orleans in the other. Seeing as this is a Curren$y tape, smooth beats are a given. He’s got a history of exceptional beat selection.
Curren$y is a rapper that, seemingly commodiously, appeals to just about everyone. And with a very respectable discography sporting a copious amount of innovative material, The Hot Spitta’s semi-stardom is well deserved. Among these releases are his mixtapes, some of which are unfairly slept on. Fear & Loathing in New Orleans has some gems. Like all of these proects it’s free and it’s another notch in Currensy’s belt. Follow on Twitter @CurrenSy_Spitta @MedievalBeatz Buy Beats Online
