Leave it to Curren$y to deliver some music at the drop of a dime.
Just a few weeks ago, the New Orleans hip hop veteran dropped off The Tonight Show with Curren$y, a 10-track collaboration with DJ Fresh that saw features from Guapdad 4000, Larry June, Chevy Woods, Problem and more. Clearly not done with gifting the masses some new music, he announced over the weekend that he had some heat with Chicago beatsmith Thelonious Martin — which ended up being the straight-to-the-point 3 Piece Set, more of the same awesomeness we’ve come to expect from the Jet Life head honcho.
Of the three songs, the most striking standout is “Survivor’s Remorse,” which — given the tragic loss of many in recent times — definitely hits pretty close to home:
“I been going paranoid, I seen so many homies killed/
Some of ‘em wasn’t my boys but you know I still feel the pain/
Cause I know exactly what it is to lose your main man/
All the moves y’all made to stack change gone down the drain/
I think about my n***a Meek Mill/
So many dead homie faces on his chain, but that’s just how we live in this game/
I think about my n***a J Stone/
The whole All Money In continue the marathon/
And Pop Smoke though we never met/
Your originality I had to respect/
I look around and see who’s left/
I’m ‘bout to pull up on all my homies, no more sending text, survivor’s remorse/
Our loved ones in the sky, they the real superstars above all/
As far as Curren$y musical pedigree, there isn’t really much to be discussed. The man’s delivered well over 50 classic mixtapes and albums, including major label releases like The Stoned Immaculate, Weekend At Bernie’s and Canal Street Confidential. As far as hip hop’s concerned, Spitta is one of the best that there is, hands down.
