With Curren$y all set to drop Canal St. Confidential tomorrow -- his third project of the year -- we revisit his third studio album, 2011's Weekend at Burnie's, specifically "This Is The Life," undoubtedly one of the best Curren$y songs ever.
"Don't concern themselves with them sucka dealings..." Spitta mutters at the top of the track. Never before has a phrase more succinctly summarized a man's M.O. than this.
Monsta Beatz, who produced the bulk of Weekend at Burnie's, lays down one of the smoothest piano lines you will ever hear on a hip hop song. Curren$y has a sizeable stable of dope producers at his disposal. But he really needs to bring back Monsta.
Still rolling in my El Co on them thiz-angs
Niggas fucking up, they ain't fucking with the pliz-anes
Hits from the bong, Cali strong, got me feeling like I
Could kill a man, but I would rather kill a bassline
These coke laced lines, too dope for most they turn their noses up
Real niggas turn the music up
