It was just three days ago that we reported that the ever-prolific Curren$y had three new projects in the works. And like clockwork, we’re now hearing the first leak from one of those efforts, his planned Verde Terrace Gangsta Grillz mixtape with DJ Drama. “Run Dat Shit” features Spitta again working with the team of Monsta Beatz, who produced all but one track on the MC’s recently released (and pretty damn solid) Weekend at Burnie’s. Whereas a majority of that album was heavily steeped in laid-back rhythms, “Run Date Shit” is much more aggressive with its brooding piano line and thrusting drums. The beat might get monotonous with repeated listens, but it’s a breath of fresh air much like Curren$y’s fantastic joint EP with the Alchemst, Covert Coup.
You can stream “Run Dat Shit” below. Verde Terrace is due out soon.
