After the successful release of Covert Coup in 2011, Curren$y and famed producer Alchemist reconnected to release Carrollton Heist.
Daniel Maman, The Alchemist—most known for his production on Mobb Deep and Dilated Peoples records—has been producing since the late 1990s. Known for producing hits such as Mobb Deep’s “Win or Lose” (2004) and Mac Miller’s “Red Dot Music” (2013), Alchemist’s sound is set on being different but ensuring it encapsulates all aspects of an artists’ sound. After the critical acclaim of Covert Coup, Curren$y fans around the world was hoping for the next collaboration between the pair.
Shante Franklin, Curren$y, is no rookie to the art of releasing a mixtape. With more than 30 mixtapes to his name, Curren$y ensures each one doesn’t sound the same as the last. The previous collaboration included features from Prodigy, Fiend, Smoke DZA and Freddie Gibbs in a 10-track mixtape laced with smooth sounds and plenty of references to one of Curren$y’s favorite topics: cars.
This new mixtape doesn’t disappoint as it includes the same number of tracks and boasts a new set of features. Listening to this mixtape, you’ll have the sounds of Styles P., Action Bronson and Lil’ Wayne to compliment the well-known smooth and mellow Curren$y sound.
