[~$#free~$#] Curren$y & LNDN DRGS Umbrella Symphony song download [new]
Curren$y has a penchant for mixing it up in a group setting. That’s precisely why and how LNDN DRGS have entered the fold, as a specialty duo known for the lifelike G-Funk recreations. Interesting to note, Curren$y isn’t necessarily the better of the two rappers, as Jay Worthy of LNDN DRGS is himself fairly gifted in that regard, specializing in the personification of cars, and the objectification of just about everything else.
With the Umbrella Symphony EP under his belt, Curren$y can now proudly add LNDN DRGS to the list artists he’s collaborated with throughout his career: Sean O’Connell, Wiz Khalifa, The Alchemist, and of course, the Jet Life collective, all joined up with him on more than one occasion.
“We laid some game in one day man,” Curren$y said of the project, in an Instagram posting meant to hype up its imminent release. “Crazy how a real friendship was forged in steel within 24 hours man…. two different perspectives with the same objectives!”
Shante Scott Franklin (born April 4, 1981), better known by his stage name Currensy (stylized as Curren$y) is an American rapper, songwriter, entrepreneur and record executive. He was one of the original members of Young Money Entertainment, a label founded by Lil Wayne. In 2011, Franklin founded the label Jet Life Recordings.
In 2002, Currensy was signed to Master P’s No Limit Records and was a late addition to the 504 Boyz, causing him to have to be photoshopped into the group’s debut album cover. The song “Get Back” by 504 Boyz Produced by Donald XL Robertson made it to the Malibu’s Most Wanted soundtrack. Currensy appeared on 5 songs in Master P’s Good Side, Bad Side album, released in 2004. Even though he was signed with No Limit, he represented C-Murders TRU label. Currensy has several songs with incarcerated friend C-Murder, and was featured on the late Soulja Slim’s album, Years Later.
Later on, in 2004, Currensy signed with Cash Money Records and Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment. He featured in Lil Wayne’s Dedication, Dedication 2, The Suffix and several unreleased songs while with Young Money. He released a mixtape entitled Welcome Back in 2004. He was featured in Lil Wayne’s “Grown Man” on Tha Carter II. While still at Young Money, Currensy created Fly Society with skateboarder Terry Kennedy, first as a clothing company, then expanding to release music. He released the song, “Where da Cash At” as the lead single for his Young Money debut, Music To Fly To, in 2006, but had to deal with several push-backs and lack of promotion. In 2007, another mixtape was released entitled Life at 30,000 Feet. He remained with Young Money until late 2007. In 2008, Currensy released Independence Day, his first project after leaving Young Money and the first of seven mixtapes to be released that year while he struck out as an independent artist.
Currensy signed with Amalgam Digital to release his debut album, This Ain’t No Mixtape, in 2009. This album was entirely produced by Monsta Beatz. Currensy was also selected to XXL magazine’s annual “Freshman Class” list, and released his second album, Jet Files, through Amalgam Digital that same year. Amalgam Digital released physical copies of This Ain’t No Mixtape and Jet Files on May 31, 2010.
Currensy’s third album, Pilot Talk, was released on July 13, 2010. The album featured guest appearances by Snoop Dogg, Big K.R.I.T. and Mos Def, amongst others, with most of the songs produced by Ski Beatz. Prior to the album’s release, there was news of Pilot Talk being released under a newly relaunched Roc-A-Fella Records. However, Currensy stated in interviews with both XXL and Complex Magazine that the album would be released under Damon Dash’s DD172 record label division, BluRoc Records and distributed through Def Jam Recordings. Currensy made numerous appearances on labelmate Ski Beatz’ debut studio album, 24 Hour Karate School, which was released on September 21, 2010.
Currensy’s fourth album, Pilot Talk II, was released on November 22, 2010, which featured Fiend and Raekwon, among others, with many of the songs produced by Ski Beatz. 2010 also saw the release of mixtape Smokee Robinson with DJ Don Cannon.
On February 1, 2011, it was announced that Currensy signed a label deal with Warner Bros. Records for his imprint, Jet Life Recordings. Covert Coup was his first project on his Jet Life Recordings imprint under Warner Bros. Released for free via Currensy’s official website on April 20, the album contains ten songs completely produced by The Alchemist. He released a mixtape, Weekend at Burnie’s on June 28, 2011, featuring his Jet-Life anthem “#JetsGo”, which was produced by Rahki. The rest of the mixtape was produced by frequent collaborator Monsta Beatz. In 2011, Currensy and his Jet Life crew released the album Jet World Order, under Jets International / iHipHop. Every track on this album features Young Roddy and Trademark da Skydiver. Frequent collaborators of Currensy are also featured on this album, including Smoke DZA, The Cool Kids’ Mikey Rocks, Cornerboy P, Fiend, Street Wiz, and Nesby Phips. Currensy himself appears on three tracks.
