On November 6th, New Orleans-based rapper Curren$y releases his first major label album in over three years, Canal Street Confidential.
The album is heralded by new single “Bottom of the Bottle (Feat. August Alsina & Lil Wayne),” which premiered last Friday to coincide with Lil Wayne’s much-lauded First Annual Lil Weezyana Festival at Champions Square. Curren$y, who performed at the festival along with the Hot Boyz, Drake, Master P, and others, was the first artist Lil Wayne brought onto his Cash Money-spin-off label, Young Money Entertainment.
Curren$y, also called “Spitta” and known for championing the “everyman” in his lyrics, said that for his latest project, he “…really sat there with an open mind, listened, and worked with a lot of people.
“I would hear how crowds were reacting when I played live,” he continued. “Everybody loves my normal spacey, slower stuff, but when I do more up-tempo records, it’s a change of pace. I wanted to transfer that and reflect it in the album. I want to make sure I got little something for everybody while staying in my style. You still know what you’re getting. I’m in sweatpants, and I’m the king of being comfortable, but you’ve got to live a little bit too. I’m getting out of that comfort zone.”
