Curren$y is counting up his blessings. He gets to play hobby while the rest of us barter. Not for nothing, he's earned every penny on his "Bank Statement." Curren$y celebrated 4/20 by surprising his fans with a three track EP called Air Freshna. The standout track is arguably "Bank Statement" because it answers many of our questions about his underground status, where he's been, what he's done?
The song is more of a personal statement than a record of his account balance. His introductory words "In these times it's more gimmicks than lyrics," break down his emphasis on staying true to his ideals. Curren$y upholds like always his "Jet Life" crew and 'mode de vie'. He refers to the current climate of hip hop as "dark years" but offers nothing in the form of a solution, except for maybe his music. He believes he has the "mainstream leverage" if he so wishes.
In these times it's more gimmicks than lyrics
But I stay trill, knowing it might fall on deaf ears for real
Instagram shenanigans, gang precedent over skill
Anything to get you shine in these dark years
I've been reppin' Jet Life in the killin' fields
Some of us probably never make it out of here
Some of us don't really give a fuck, they just givin' up
