The Marina EP Currensy and Harry Fraud Collaboration

Jet life takes keys from Master P.’s No-Limit records in true New Orleans style going commercial as an independent label.  Consistently providing the streets with classic cars and classic bars with respect to the underground. Rhythmic renditions of heavy weed smoke and the realest of circumstances amass the backdrop of New Orleans, LA. New Orleans the home of both the Saints and Sinners. Where Bourbon St. is a hot-bed for violence and socializing. A desolate hometown where funerals are conducted daily, and choppers ring out.

Currensy chooses to use his sorrow to solidify Jet Life and his car club on the rap scene. The Big Easy is home of the Original House of Blues, the tradition of Zydeco, and infamously high crime rate. Somehow, Currensy has brought forth a new era of definitive jet-setters. Proving mellow vibes and high definition “Audio Dope.” is all it takes to cement yourself in rap culture. What is “Audio Dope”? It can be interpreted as simply a sound transmitting highs and lows to your speakers. Or it can be as complex as administering a vibe of rap sedation to the masses.

New Orleans hot boys versus cool flows is the typical Currensy mix-tape.  Harry Fraud has become an underground staple in East Coast hip hop.  The mastermind behind French Montana’s breakout hit, “Shot Caller,” Harry Fraud has changed the soundscape of New York inspired rap.  In addition to reported chemistry with frequent collaborator and discoverer French Montana, Fraud also produced Queens emcee, Action Bronson’s debut studio album SAAB Stories.  Known for his hard-hitting beats and gritty drum layered production, Fraud is riding the wave. His imprint Surf School was created in tribute to Max B, as an affiliate of Priority Records.

Harry Fraud began cementing his underground legend in 2009.  His last mix-tape was the sequel to Rogues Playlist. An atypical producer his bass progressions are well known in rap today.  Fraud manages to implement rare classic samples in his East Coast sound. Aside from the star-studded feature list the posthumous Coke Boy, Chinx, killed by gun violence, and Mobb Deep legend Prodigy, tragically lost in April of this year appear on the tape.  Harry Fraud produced some of the best indie and mainstream rap music in recent years. A bonafide hippie, Fraud hails from a now gentrified Italian neighborhood in Brooklyn.

The wave or phrase wavy was established by Max B in the early 2000’s.  The wave draws on authentic energy that propels the rap game forward. The wave is a legacy that allows artist to venture out and reinvent cool.  Despite the death of the boom bap era, Harry Fraud manages to keep the bass alive in new-age hip hop. He does it all live from the underground.

Currensy artistic integrity never fails the listener. The creative license he brings to ghetto realities is groundbreaking. Currensy is a sleeping giant. Commercial artist cannot hang with his hustle or wordplay.  He drifts in and out of killer methodical rhyme, and this tape just might bust your ear drums.

Currensys’ ad-lib’s keep the Jet Life mix-tape honest. Currensy and his Jet Life artist represent the East Bank, of New Orleans, LA. This mix-tape goes up in a cloud of smoke. These bars decipher whips, women, and smoke. and these rappers formulated some serious heat. Southern slang over East Coast beat production seldom disappoints, due to the merging of rap spectra. These joints will restore your faith in the other side of the game- fast money. The “Canal Street Boys,” solidify the vibe, calm, soothing. This mix-tape has it all, blaze one and respect the solidarity of Jet Life.
