Curren$y Releases His Second Solo Project Of 2018, 'Parking Lot Music'

New music is here from Curren$y.

It looks like Curren$y is in the cockpit sitting comfortably as the Jet Life general uses his latest mixtape, Parking Lot Music, to continue flooding fans with music. The nine-song mixtape is Curren$y’s second solo project of 2018. Yet, unlike his surprise tape, Spring Collection, Parking Lot Music was heavily promoted leaving fans anxious for its release. By containing Spitta’s signature flow in addition to features from E-40, Ty Dolla $ign, and Casey Veggies, Parking Lot Music oozes the nostalgically cinematic feel that is characteristic of a Curren$y mixtape.

By dropping Parking Lot Music, Spitta only adds to the anticipation surrounding the unveiling of the second installment of his 2011 Weekend At Burnie’s mixtape series, Back At Burnie’s. The excitement that Curren$y can create despite his continuous onslaught of music is a testament to the rapper’s cultural significance.

Throughout his tenure, Curren$y has been signed to his native New Orleans record labels of No Limit and Young Money/Cash Money while building relationships with Dame Dash and his best friend, Wiz Khalifa. Through this nomadic journey, Curren$y not only amassed a cult-like following, but also ushered in a style that some will say has shifted the genre as a whole.

“[Wiz Khalifa’s] mom called it,” Curren$y described while recounting to the Drink Champs podcast the origins of the duo's now famous friendship. “She said, ‘Everything y’all are saying right now is what these kids are about to be doing.’ She said it just like that. She said that they are going to rap like y’all, smoke papers, all that. In 2009… And that’s exactly how it panned out.”

Anderson .Paak Prepares 'Ventura' Album Release With New Single "King James"

Only four months after his recently released Oxnard album, Anderson .Paak dropped a new single to commemorate his forthcoming project, Ventura. To up the ante, his new song titled "King James" arrived early Friday morning (March 15), bringing a hard-hitting track coated in funky instrumentals and good intentions.

"King James" takes jazz-funk inspirations to a new level with the sounds of a smooth saxophone, which opens the smile-provoking 808 beat that rides under the Grammy-winning musician's voice. Covering a myriad of important topics like the looming border wall construction and black empowerment, the 33-year-old gives a shout out to LeBron James' contributions to the African American community and the NFL-kneeling movement started by Colin Kaepernick.

Though the single seems very serious, .Paak's "King James" inspires a groove with its upbeat production.

The "Tints" emcee also announced the forthcoming tracklist will include star-studded features from Brandy, André 3000, Jazmine Sullivan, Nate Dogg, and Smokey Robinson. Ventura will reach virtual streaming shelves April 12.

ScHoolboy Q Returns With 'Numb Numb Juice'

TDE had a fruitful 2018, with Jay Rock earning a Grammy for "Win" and Kendrick Lamar and SZA sharing an Oscar for their song "All The Stars." But now, it's ScHoolboy Q's turn. After working guest features over the past few years with Mike WiLL Made-It and on the Black Panther soundtrack, Q has dropped his new single, "Numb Numb Juice."

"Numb Numb Juice" clocks in at under two minutes, but that's all the time he needs. The bars are signature ScHoolboy Q, with a hard-hitting beat by DJ Fu, Hykeem Carter and Nez & Rio. No word on a release date or title for his album, the folow-up to 2016's Blank Face LP, but fans are clearly ready - "Numb Numb Juice" was trending on the Thursday morning (March 14) after its release. The music video appears to be scheduled for a 1 p.m. EST release.

KC Ruskii Details His Journey From Homeless To "Hood Rich" In New Visual

Upon meeting the young rap machine KC Ruskii, one will determine that he's a survivor. It's the way he automatically embraces good energy and how open and honest he is about his blessings in life. "I was homeless, sleeping where I could," said the Midwest native, now southern transplant. "My music speaks on it," he told me. But the first couple of tracks he debuted for me were turn up records, so I didn't make the connection to his hardships right away. Around the third or fourth track he played me, "Hood Rich," pops up and I immediately felt the vibe and said, "This is the one the people need to hear, early." The youngin' took the advice as the video is here.

What makes this song special is the way the verses explain the pain that he endured during his hardtimes. The video is the exclamation point on the message that so many young kids go through. Just the opening sequence where his friend's Mom yells about not having the fund, food or patience to deal with another mouth to feed. That talk that needs to happen between the homies when you have to kick him out, after helping as much as they can, is so real for those that have been and are in that position...both sides.

Watch the video, feel his flow and be on the look out for more from this budding artist. Check his previous single with QC's Lil Baby below.
