Curren$y is one of the hardest working rappers in the game. He releases multiple mixtapes per year—the most recent, The Drive In Theatre, dropped on Valentine's Day. In between the long hours spent in the studio, the New Orleans-based rapper finds time to play as many shows across the country as he can, including tonight's set at the Observatory. If he's ever weary, the 33-year-old hardly shows it—energetic and engaging, Curren$y is easily one of today's most charismatic performers when he's onstage. As one of the few rappers who has worked with both No Limit and Cash Money Records, Curren$y is a rarity not only because of this distinction, but after a decade in the game, he remains one of the freshest voices in hip-hop.
