Curren$y is one of the most interesting stories in hip-hop. He was on No Limit, he was on Cash Money, he was a mixtape legend, and now he has a cult following of super-fans who throw fat joints at his feet while he performs on stage. 

The New Orleans native had his strongest run of mixtapes in 2008, where he released seven(!) tapes between February and September, cementing his place in the circuit. His stoner/slacker image was easy to identify with, and he was careful about picking classic beats to go in over.

This Thursday, we're throwing it back to Spitta's mixtape cuts from this era. It's no easy feat to release seven mixtapes in eight months, but if there is one thing Curren$y has proven, it's his work ethic. Enjoy the throwback cuts.
