I’ve had two Curren$y albums sitting on my ipod for a few months now without ever really giving them a listen, but then the track Silence caught my ear and now I’m hooked. He’s a New Orleans rapper who I guess is talking about weed or something, but I can’t really pay attention cause the production by 90s Jay-Z collaborator Ski is just so damn beautiful. These smooth, low key, psychedelic, funky layered tracks give everything a nice vintage hazy feel, with the aforementioned Silence adding sinewy female vocals breathing through a piano line that has me nostalgic for Coolio.
Stop by The Heights tonight for another BYT happy hour starting at 6pm where I’ll be DJing more songs I like + you can win free tickets and stuff. And since it’s a BYT happy hour, assume you’ll need an umbrella. :-/
