Weekend At Burnie's
Label: Warner Records
Curren$y's utopia of candy-painted cars and pliant women has grown familiar after the Pilot Talk series and mixtapes like Covert Coup. But the formula still works for now. On Weekend at Burnie's, he flips rhymes with the efficiency of a joystick, twisting familiar riffs on Dayton tire rims and Cannabis Cup competitions into floating worlds like "Televised" and "#Jetsgo." Monsta Beatz, whose production approximates Ski Beatz's winning Pilot Talk sound but can't match his musicality, adds sleepily synthesized grooves to Curren$y's game-spitting performances.
