Curren$y - The Stoned Immaculate
By Del F. CowieCurren$y has done more than a few tours of duty; he first surfaced with Master P's No Limit crew, then with Lil Wayne, with a nascent Young Money, and most recently with ex-Roc A Fella exec and Jay-Z business partner Damon Dash. Unfortunately, much like the other deals, Curren$y's dalliance with Dash hasn't worked out for the New Orleans-bred MC, with legal procedures against Dash currently ongoing. Not much of this strife makes it into Curren$y's musical output, which over his impressive mixtape production rate is fairly heavy on weed, women and cars, rote subjects elevated by Curren$y's down to earth charisma. The Stoned Immaculate isn't that much different, it's just Curren$y at a higher grade, if you will. To that end, guests such as Pharrell and Estelle indicate the higher profile and the irresistibly sumptuous, laidback production boasts a noticeably shinier carwash sheen. Yet Curren$y's laconic, witty persona remains, shining brightest on the idyllic "Showroom," demonstrating that he is best when left all alone.
