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 his Young 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$y released a series of mixtapes.
Before blowing up and re-creating Roc-A-Fella Records with Damon Dash, before the guys over at 1515 came calling, probably before you jumped on the back of the JETS bandwagon, Curren$y the Hot Spitta had a goal in mind in 2008 – to over-saturate the blog scene with a monthly mixtape series (7 tapes in all). That foundation laid then was the groundwork for countless singles, group projects, XXL Freshman nominations, potential group collaborations and lots more. This mixtape was Curren$y first tape away from Cash Money, to focus more on Fly Society. Featuring hits like “Airplane“, “Reagan Era“, “Paternity Test“, “Full of Money” and more.
