Since 2009, when he released the series’ inaugural installment as part of his Smokee Robinson mixtape, Curren$y has been keeping his fanbase supplied with regular servings of Audio Dope. This past weekend, the New Orleans repper unleashed part four in the series—a cut which, despite being a solo effort from Spitta, has found its way onto his collaborative set with Young Roddy. Brooklyn beatmaker Harry Fraud mans the boards on this opulent selection, layering jazzy piano ornaments over a sedate keyboard/percussion groove as the rapper describes his fly lifestyle in characteristically calm, measured bars. Director CJ Wallis provides a glitzy visual accompaniment to the artist’s high-rolling rhymes. Fiending for more? Then what are you waiting for—download a copy of Curren$y and Roddy’s Bales mixtape, out now online.
