Curren$y – “Collection Agency” review

This is the 21st EP from New Orleans veteran Curren$y. Getting his start with No Limit Records in 2002, would then hop over to Young Money Entertainment & Cash Money Records in 2006 before branching out in 2008 with his own label Jet Life Recordings. He has made a name for himself by dropping a handful of projects every single year, the most recent being an EP trilogy with Harry Fraud that was released throughout the 2nd half of 2020. However 3 months later, we’re diving right into Collection Agency.

The EP starts out with “Kush Through the Sunroof”, where Spitta talks about being in an armored Mercedes over a bluesy trap beat from Trauma Tone. The next song “Smiled on Me” talks about his ancestors looking down on him from above over a glamorous instrumental from DJ Fresh while the track “Arrival” talks about pulling up stoned over a jazzy beat from Harry Fraud himself. The song “I Don’t Call” talks about the shit he has that never uses over a synth-laced trap instrumental from Purps while the track “Jermaine Dupri” boasts over a glossy beat.

The song “Closing Date” gets in his shit-talking bag over a smoked out instrumental while the track “Shout Out” with Larry June finds the 2 showing love to the real over a comatose beat. The song “Ferrari Engine” talks about leaving the block trembling over a stripped-back instrumental while the penultimate track “Above the Law” talks about how they don’t want a war over a soul sample provided by Rrsonist of The Heatmakerz. The EP finishes off with “Misty”, where Curren$y talks about how the Chevy’s on switches over a trap beat with some horns laced in.

It’s not one of my favorite projects Spitta has ever put out, but I do find Collection Agency to be an enjoyable EP for the most part. He still manages to do a good job at balancing quantity & quality as his flows are still silky smooth this deep into his career & his ear for production remains top notch.

Score: 3.5/5
