Currensy x Alchemist - The Carrollton Heist

It was supposed to be an All-Star Saturday Night. That was what the world had prepared for – to spend their Saturday nights watching the NBA put on its annual Dunk Contest-Skills Challenge-3 Point Shootout medley (or the GOP Debate). Then famed producer the Alchemist tweeted this, and that changed everything.

Yes, it seemed that Alan the Chemist and Curren$y would be joining forces on a project – their first solely dual project since 2011’s Covert Coup mixtape – tonight. Lo and behold, at exactly seventeen seconds past midnight EST, DatPiff premiered Curren$y’s newest release, The Carrollton Heist.

If you’ve been keeping score, this marks three new releases from the New Orleans Spitta in as many months, following Canal Street Confidential in December and The Owners’ Manual in January. Twelve tracks deep and bearing features only from Lil’ Wayne, Styles P, and Action Bronson, The Carrollton Heist is smoker approved and should be worth a spin or two in the whip as well. Early standouts include the smooth “Cartridges,” the ’90s hip-hop sounding “Fat Albert” (on which Wayne seems to channel the ghost of Mixtape Weezy past), and “500 Pounds of Gas,” which deserves instant entry into the best beats of 2016 off Alchemist’s boardwork on the track alone.
