This review is from: The Stoned Immaculate (Deluxe Version) [Explicit] (MP3 Music)
Curren$y is a rapper who has been around since 2002, but hasn't really gained much success in the mainstream although he has started to make a name for himself as a major rapper in the hip hop scene. Curren$y is a stoner rapper who has a laidback flow and is rumoured to have lungs that would make Wiz Khalifa seem like a rookie. I wasn't really expecting much going into this album since I hadn't heard much about Curren$y going into the album, but I ended up being pleasantly surprised with what I heard.
The Stoned Immaculate is the 8th abum from Curren$y, but is his first album as a member of a major label and not as an idependant artist. With his label debut Spitta keeps the formula he has mastered over his independant releases and creates a well rounded album. As long as you are not annoyed by Curren$y's slower flow you should enjoy this new release from Spitta. The album kicks off great with the lead single from the album, What It Look Like Ft. Wale. The harp strings, piano keys and strings creates a great soulful beat which Wale and Curren$y both shine on and starts off the album on a great note. Privacy Glass and Amoire are the two following tracks which both are solid tracks although the first of the two impresses more with a smooth beat and some good lines from Spitta. Take You There comes next and has a great hook to go along with some calm lines from Curren$y which is what his fans have grown to love him for. ShowRoom and Capitol are both smooth tracks from Spitta although Capitol is ruined by a verse from 2 Chainz, which otherwise has a really smooth beat which I loved to go along with a laid back hook and verses from Spitta.
No Squares Ft. Wiz Khalifa is a track between the two most popular stoner rappers which brags about the success which both have achieved and is another quality track on the album. Sunroof follows which is a below average song which has a pretty wierd beat. My favorite song from the album comes next in Chasin' Papers Ft. Pharell which features a great Pharell beat and hook as well as featuring some of Spitta's best verses on the album. Two more standout tracks follow in That's The Thing Ft. Estelle and Chandelier which are both smooth tracks with impressive verses to be found on both tracks along with a good hook. Fast Cars Faster Women was the worst track I heard on the album although the featured artist Daz delivers a good verse on the song. The second single, Jet Life follows which is a standout track with a good hook from Big K.R.I.T. The three bonus tracks on the deluxe version only delivered one song which I enjoyed with the final track J.L.R. which had a really smooth woodwind instrumental beat in the background.
With his major label debut album delivers a nice smooth laid back rap album which has a more refined sound than any of his previous albums. Older fans of Curren$y will not be dissapointed with this album which should atract new fans to Spitta as well who it looks like did not change his style when he signed to the major label Warner Bros. The Stoned Immaculate is a good album from Curren$y with majestic production and good laid back rapping from Spitta which gets 3 1/2 stars.
