Album: Curren$y & Fendi P – Smokin’ Potnas
The Game’s Hardest-Working Stoner and His Jet Life Protegé Teach Us How to Live Large on a 9-Track New Project
“Curren$y is still capable of rapping something so simple it’ll make you wonder how no one has rapped it already” – Pitchfork
“Curren$y’s sharpened pen and deft wordplay will quiet the doubters. His influence was evident then, and it’s irrefutable now.” – Rolling Stone
His music might be laid-back, but few people in the rap game work as hard as Curren$y. Forming a formidable duo with his Jet Life Recordings signee and close friend Fendi P, Spitta shares Smokin’ Potnas, his latest project. Unloading life lessons atop lush production, Curren$y and Fendi offer pearl after pearl of street wisdom–Spitta offers a veteran perspective on growing your bankroll, while Fendi assumes the role of the striver, never satisfied even as his day-to-day grows more luxurious.
The two New Orleans natives are on top of their game, crafting slick flexes that weave within soul-samples and tuneful 808s–Fendi marvels at his sparkling watches and beautiful views on “Stainless,“ Spitta counts thirteen Chevy Impalas on “Swang,” and both rappers mix business with pleasure on recent single “Strategize.” Featuring production from Harry Fraud, Sledgren, TraumaTone, and more, Smokin’ Potnas is available to stream everywhere via Jet Life Recordings/EMPIRE.
Formerly known as Corner Boy P, Eastside New Orleans rapper Fendi P has been steadily rising since his 2016 debut, collaborating with the likes of Lil Wayne, Project Pat, and many others. Last year, Fendi dropped Fendi P 3, a 15-song set that spotlighted his skill with fresh flexes and sharp storytelling.
Uncountably prolific, but never lacking in quality, Curren$y has already had a busy 2020, collaborating with Dj.fresh on The Tonite Show With Curren$y in January, and treating his fans to the 3 Piece Set EP just a month later..
Stay tuned for much more from Curren$y and Fendi P, together and separate, as 2020 moves on.
