Curren$y Connects With Styles P for ‘Alert’
On the underground and independent circuit, Curren$y has long been regarded as one of the reliable artists when it comes to servicing his fans.
With an endless stream of releases and constantly touring, Spitta has become a model of consistency with the gift of being able to remain relevant without oversaturating the market. He is currently making the rounds in promotion of the third installment of his Pilot Talk trilogy, which drops on April 4.
"Never stop 'til we pick up loot on every block." That's the motto Curren$y and his Jet Life compatriots live by, which he serves as the opening line on his latest salvo, "Alert." Produced by Ski Beatz and Styles P, the track is exactly what fans of Curren$y expect with a smoked-out beat, car references and other fly ish.
He gives props to his lady of the moment and her enterprising ways. "We use the Pro Tools to break down boulders / my girl pull her own weight with her sexy lil shoulders / in the strapless Vera Wang, Alexander, or whoever made it / I just know she paid it, it cost me naything," the New Orleans native raps. The rapper still maintains his G, making it clear that he's far from a rest haven for gold-digging women.
Styles P, who has quietly been on a tear musically over the last few years, joins Spitta on the track and makes his presence felt immediately, beginning his verse with the quote-worthy opening bar, "Boss playa, I ask for the cost later / Throw it in the cut, like f--- it, I'll floss later / In the mix like a cross-fader / No DJ, giving 'em no leeway." The LOX member shines bright with a commendable performance.
