Curren$y’s named his newest Covert Coup because, as he told the Well Versed, it represents an “underground [rapper] overthrowing the mainstream bullshit.” Consider this, then, the New Orleans native’s entry back into the mainstream spotlight. The EP, which is produced entirely by the Alchemist, is Curren$y’s first release since signing to Warner Bros. earlier this year. Covert Coup is also completely free and features appearances by Freddie Gibbs, Smoke DZA, Fiend, and Prodigy. It will be very interesting to see where Spitta goes from here and whether he will drop a proper major label album before Muscle Car Chronicles is released.
