Curren$y and Jermaine Dupri finally have a release date for their joint project.

Curren$y and Jermaine Dupri are the duo we never knew we needed. Over the past two years, the Southern titans have hinted at a joint project. However, they began to provide fans with a bit of insight into what they cooked up last week. The two rappers delivered a spectacular performance on "From The Block" where they debuted "Never Enough." Then, they offloaded their first official single from the project, "Essence Fest" on Friday. The single serves as an ode to NOLA and the regional sound of bounce that emerged from it.

Both singles provided fans with some insight into what to expect, though fans won't be waiting much longer for their full-length LP. This morning, Curren$y and Jermaine Dupri appeared on Twitter Spaces with Elliott Wilson where they confirmed a release date for their upcoming project, For Motivational Use Only. "Since everybody’s been asking when the album coming out… 404,” JD confirmed. “The date of this album is on 4/04. That’s Spitta’s birthday.” Curren$y added, "That’s 404 day for Atlanta and my birthday for the whole muthafuckin’ world.”

Spitta and Jermaine Dupri already confirmed that they have almost 40 songs loaded for the upcoming trilogy. However, it seems like we won't be waiting long for the second installment of For Motivational Use Only. In correspondence of 504 day in New Orleans, JD suggested the follow-up could arrive a month later. "He just talked to me about dropping another record on 5/04," JD said. "Yeah, so we dropping on muthafuckin’ Atlanta day, 4/04. Even though that’s my birthday, I want my damn area code to have some music,” Curren$y added.

With a trilogy in the works, Curren$y, who released a tribute song to Jermaine Dupri in the past, explained that they want to bring music that will speak directly to the go-getters. "You’re going to be pushed to get money, to count that money, invest that money wisely, and then once you flipped it once or two times, then maybe get yourself a little something and then continue and rinse and repeat. That’s what it’s about," Spitta told Vibe. Check out the announcement above.
