Curren$y released Saturday Night Car Tunes without any warning in 2014, one of a few projects he’s released in that manner. The title showcases the clever wordplay that Curren$y is known so well for, as well as his fascination with muscle cars.
This mixtape features a varied set of beats, with a few features thrown in for good measure. Spitta Andretti even lets Birdman hop on a track, surprising since Curren$y was once Cash Money’s chosen son before he opted to stay underground and spurned a move toward the mainstream. It should be a move we’re all thankful for.
The sound varies from jazzy samples, to trappy beats to wild vocal samples, and Curren$y is comfortable navigating all of them. It’s a short tape, but that’s never taken anything away from a rapper who has so much music out.
HIGHLIGHTS: “10 Gs Remix” feat Birdman & Gunplay, “Music n History”
