Curren$y chopped it up with Complex Magazine about the multiple project’s he is working on and when he plans on releasing them. Is there anyone else delivering this much quality product on such a regular basis? I think not, much respect.
Check out a few details of his project with Alchemist below, you can read the interview in full here.
“I got to know Alchemist through beats. I reached out to him on Twitter about some beats. When I went to L.A. to finish the Warner Brothers Deal, I went to Al’s studio, and that was the first time I met him. We were on the same page.

And I was able to convey to him that what I was trying to do could be done more effectively with his beats. And he believed in what I was trying to do so much, he knew if that was what was going to put it at this level, then here you go. That was an alley-oop right there. Everybody in the industry knows how much an Alchemist beat costs. To get a double digit number of Alchemist beats for free is a sacrifice made.
“We’re putting it out for free on April 20, a little 4:20 thing. We just can’t call it a mixtape because it’s all original music. Smoke DZA, Fiend, and Freddie Gibbs are all on there. It’s just ten records, more of the
