Curren$y, Trademark, Young Roddy, Fiend and Corner Boy P

As easy as I find it to write off the majority of blog-weight rappers from the last three or four years (if you can name even one member of, say, Pac Div, you have too much time on your hands), I can’t help loving the output of one Shante Franklin, AKA Curren$y. Formerly known by his suffix Tha Hot Spitta (or just Spitta, if ya nasty), Curren$y has surfed the crest of some of Southern rap’s most powerful movements, as a one-time signee of both No Limit and Cash Money Records; it is his evolution into the unfazeable rap Lebowski of today, however, that is the most remarkable. Dedicated to high-grade weed, fine women, and vintage muscle cars, Spitta’s lifestyle tunes ooze a rare Devin the Dude-esque cool, while his wordplay and flow are damn near peerless. Jets… fool.
