Now this is the perfect soundtrack for your summer!
Germany’s super-producer Shuko (who’s worked with artists like Rakim, Talib Kweli, Tyga and T-Pain, just to name a few) has joined forces with fellow producer The Breed to bring you “Dippin'”, a homage to the 90’s West Coast sound.
10 instrumental bangers + the first single featuring Gangsta Rap legends King Tee and MC Eiht.
Without a doubt, Curren$y is one of the hardest working artists in hip-hop, once again dropping quality projects back to back.
After teaming up with Freddie Gibbs & the Alchemist for the end of last year’s “Fetti”and his potna in (c)rhyme Wiz Khalifa for “2009” earlier this year, Spitta reconnects with fellow workaholics LNDN DRGS (Jay Worthy & Sean House) for the laid back “Umbrella Symphony” EP.
And as if that wasn’t enough, he drops another fire collabo project for the East Coast heads with yet another hard working craftsman by the name of DJ Statik Selektah (who also just recently released a phenomenal LP with Bun B called “TrillStatik”). The 10-track album features Jadakiss, YBN Cordae, Jim Jones, and Termanology.
