Curren$y is here with his official “Verde Terrace Mixtape” going by his Spitta Andretti alias with DJ Drama. I love when Currensy stays on the grind because that means there’s going to be more dope hip hop music to post up. Although his “Weekend At Burnies album” was pretty solid, I thought that he could have stepped his game up more. Maybe I was a little bit too critical though, but I’m trying to give honest feedback.
I posted up his “Televised video” from the album awhile back, but I’m glad he released a new project. In a recent interview, Curren$y says that he generally averages completing 3 new tracks every single day, unless he does a feature for a friend (like Dom Kennedy). On days when he does a feature, he generally only drops the verse for the feature and calls it. With that said, his grind is definitely on point and to be honest, he’s got one of the coolest, most down to Earth, personalities out of any artist in the music industry; something that makes him even more likable (no homo/pause).

Some people complain that most of Spitta’s joints have been “sounding the same” or “similar” to his other songs because he has that slow, mellow, stoner flow. To be honest, I love what he’s doing here, but if I had one recommendation for him, it would be to at least try to get some more upbeat instrumentals. I appreciate the slow stoner-esque flow that he’s using, but I know he’s capable of sounding really dope on higher energy music like “Runway” and “Space Shuttle,” and even like he did on “Damier Doobies.” He is still one of my favorite mixtape artists of all time no doubt (I still think he’s the most played in my iTunes library).

Lex Luger talks about making beats for Waka Flocka Flame, Rick Ross, as well as working with Kanye West for the song “H.A.M.” No doubt dude has talent… Although a lot of people say his beats all sound like a slight modification of his past beats (e.g. recycled), I think they are all pretty fucking hot. Dude has become popular and for good reason – his beats fucking knock. I’m just being true to myself by saying fuck the Lex haters out there, he makes trap beats that knock… Hard In Da Paint/BMF/H.A.M. are all prime examples… Plus he worked with Wiz Khalifa on Cabin Fever mixtape and Juicy J for “Rubba Band Business” mixtapes…
