HIP-HOP | Curren$y’s “Return To The Winner’s Circle”

Posted by on January 2, 2011

I wanted to run through this entire mixtape before covering it on FNT. There aren’t any surprises here (unfortunately), just basically what you’d expect from a vet in the game with an album around the corner: solid production with the usual Curren$y chill rap flair. “Return To the Winner’s Circle” is a solid piece of work but I’m still waiting for Curren$y to create a “breakthrough” project – one that really accelerates his career from his current standing. Although he’s holding onto the music world with a strong grip with notable accolades that range from him being a former Young Money artist (you do still remember that song he did with Lil Wayne “Where Da Cash At” , right?), to his 150k+ fans on twitter, I still don’t consider him a huge force in the game. He’s armed with a unique sound and voice, which he utilizes well with smart lyrics, but he’s moving more laterally than he is vertically it seems. Lets put it this way, I’d be nervous to have him headline a show. Anyways, I’ve posted my favorite cuts below… Abridged version: To me this mixtape is more of a buzz maintainer than producer, something to hold us over until he drops his next album.
