When Curren$y met Harry Fraud, he knew he'd found someone worth working with. The New Orleans rapper asked the Brooklyn producer to play him some sample beats, MTV.com reports, and the five he heard became the basis for Cigarette Boats, a new collaborative EP the duo dropped Tuesday (July 10).

Fraud came to the project with no shortage of street cred, having worked with French Montana and Action Bronson, among others, but he's not yet a household name. Boats might float him further into the public eye, as the BK up-and-comer outfits Curren$y with five smoothed-out tracks perfect for summer listening.

To stream or download the mixtape, head on over to Datpiff, and be sure to check out the soulful standout "Mirrors," featuring Smoke DZA.
