The Stoned Immaculate is the latest project from Curren$y, a rapper whose work ethic is unmatched in the Hip-Hop game. Just last year he released the critically-acclaimed projects Weekend At Burnies’ (its title a play on the 1989 cult classic film Weekend at Bernies’) and the Alchemist-helmed Covert Coupe, which New York Magazine called “a solid ten-song block of underground head-nodding, uninterrupted by pop hooks, production shifts, or anything else that might break the spell.” Since last year, Spitta has released his Verde Terrace mixtape, with DJ Drama, a 5-song FreEP called Here released to fans via Twitter during Superbowl weekend, and most recently an EP collaboration with Yonkers rapper Styles P titled #The1st28.
Initially signed to fellow New Orleans rapper C-Murder’s Tru Records in 2001, Curren$y was brought over to Master P’s New No Limit Records in 2002. From 2004-2007, Curren$y enjoyed a stint on Cash Money Records as part of Lil Wayne’s burgeoning Young Money Entertainment before venturing out on his own. In 2009, Curren$y was selected as one of XXL Magazine’s “Top 10 Freshman” in recognition of his talent and drive amongst the likes of B.O.B, Kid Cudi, Wale and others. Since then Curren$y has released a series of mixtapes while building his J.E.T.S (Just Enjoy This Sh*t) apparel and lifestyle brand.
