REVIEW & STREAM: Curren$y’s The Owners Manual


(AllHipHop Reviews) Curren$y is back with The Owners Manual, a 6-song free EP produced by the dynamic duo of Cool & Dre. The EP was ceremoniously released for free today and is full of smooth, laid back and melodic tracks that compliment Curren$y’s flow. The EP comes right after Canal Street Confidential in December 2015.

The Owners Manual starts with “Sorry For The Wraith,” the first full song. Definitely a nod to the smokers, Curren$y kicks lyrics boldly proclaiming “we been winning every day.” And win, he does. The subsequent songs also follow the mellow motif of “Wraith.” On “Rain Stunts,” Curren$y talks about how he has not changed even though his friends have. “Came Up” is a similar song, where you can envision you and a partner riding around a mountainside or somewhere deep in nature. The audio intensifies a bit on “Forecast,” where the N.O. rep rides a sparse beat and then comes back down down again on “Mallory Knox.”

Overall, Curren$y’s The Owners Manual is consistent with Curren$y’s inebriated brand, smoked out music to ride to. His work ethic is on point, as are his bars. The EP could get a little tiresome depending on your tastes. There is very little diversity, even though Cool & Dre are more than ample on the beats. Curren$y’ style at times resembles a Jazz player’s improv act. He’s doing what he wants in the moment, allowing his creative genius take the lead. The Owners Manual is a case study in style and consistency.

    this guy doesn’t understand that concept of quality over quantity. i can’t even find first week sales for pilot talk 3. poorly presented music. instead of throwing away all your music and putting together garbage packages you could have had atleast 4 classic albums by now and be on j.cole level so many dope dope songs thrown away surrounded by garbage 2 minute lazy songs. but they are there. stop smoking weed man it’s not working for you.

      Currensy never was a album rapper. He will never be on J.Cole level because he doesn’t make songs for the radio and he’s not really lyrical even though he is better than the majority of rappers out there. U have to really be a fan to understand and appreciate his music. With that being said I gotta check this out cause he doesn’t dissapoint

      • Oopster

        He didn’t disappoint I just listened to the whole mixtape straight fuego!!!

    • IDNTGIVAFUCKBOUTNOTHING

      You gotta understand Currency will NEVER be on a J. Cole level. He’s a Successful Independent Underground Artist. If you can put together enough Quality Work on Mixtapes and Albums to go on a Successful Tour, then you’ve done your Job. He can tour anywhere in the South and make Big $$$$, and he doesnt have to answer to anybody. I think he’s satisfied with that.

      • The Wackness Vs Dope

        his not succsessful – his not growing, he doesn’t have to be j.cole but his not progressing – trust me iv been a fan for the longest, he just doesn’t try – his too nonchalant about it

      • IDNTGIVAFUCKBOUTNOTHING

        First of all, he made his self a Millionaire doing what he loves to do. He’s been in the Rap game going on 10+ Years. He’s done songs with Lil Wayne, Master P, Wiz Khalifa, even Jay-Z. He’s from Louisiana, the COUNTRY, the HOOD. He has his own record label now with like 8 Artists. He even won a $3,000,000 lawsuit against Dame Dash Last Year. You sound Absurd saying that he’s not Successful. You owe him an apology.

      • The Wackness Vs Dope

        no i’m a curren$y fan for the longest i know a wasted talent when i see one. In a game where no one has their own styles anymore he was one of the dudes i thought was on the low one of the best rappers for having the style he has. The way he raps and you don’t know what his going to rhyme after, or he just takes it somewhere else and rhymes a pattern you werent even listening to and doesn’t rhyme the one you were paying attention to. Genius. His style is like a southern Raekwon, choppy and descriptive. But he doesn’t understand presentation and packaging the music into a body of work all those throw away tapes, why? If he kept his songs and picked the best ones and used those one 1 album – classic. for example. This below.

        3. Choosin Feat Wiz Khalifa And Rick Ross
        4. The Type feat. Prodigy

        11. Seat Change Feat. Snoop Dogg
        12. Prioritize ft
        13. Silence (Feat. McKenzie Eddy)

        not 600 tapes with loose gems here and there. laziness. Not taking enough care with the craft.

      • IDNTGIVAFUCKBOUTNOTHING

        You cant try to make somebody into somebody else. This is his choice and his persona and his image. I know you probably want to see him get as much recognition as Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa, but I think that he’s happier in his situation. An artist like Tyga is trending on Twitter, but he doesnt even seem happy because he literally gets no privacy. Currency gets to Fly all over the World, be rich and famous, and still have his Privacy. Sounds like a Victory to me.

      • The Wackness Vs Dope

        yes choice to be lazy and not progressive and not growing too much of a stoner that he doesn’t respect the music – his neef from the roc days

  • Oopster

    Flames!!!! whoever this guy is under me is a drake stan I guarantee ….only real ones understand where hot spitta come from I’ve grown to learn and understand that

        It’s funny how you know better than currency but he’s the one who’s been in the game for 15 years

      • The Wackness Vs Dope

        it’s actually funnier that you don’t need to make music to be able to rate it. The “you do it better” argument is stupid. I don’t have to do it. I’m not a rapper. I’m a listener. Who cares how long his been in the game. his lazy and not growing as an artist – lazy and unambitious with the music – too many fillers – he is a how to manual for a filler filled career.

      • Oopster

        Jet life to the next life bruh if you don’t like what he makes then don’t listen go listen to drake sing about strippers and bad dates
