Happy 4/20, which around these parts means two things: the premiere of Beastie Boys’ Fight For Your Right Revisited and the release of Curren$y’s Covert Coup mixtape. (What drugs? We took D.A.R.E.!).
As previously reported, Curren$y‘s latest effort, the first of many he has planned for 2011, features the production work of The Alchemist and guest spots from Freddie Gibbs, Smoke DZA, Prodigy, and Fiend. And if you’re one of those folks who plans to live up to the 4/20 stereotypes, then the mixtape will definitely aid in your conquest: “Obviously, I guess it would be redundant to say we were smoking weed, we made the music very high,” The Alchemist explained to MTV. “It definitely is the audio equivalent of that; you’ll definitely feel high after you listen to it. I had a lot of fun doing it, man. He ain’t really restricted with his music as far as how he created, he’s real loose, that’s how I like to be too.”
