New Orleans rap artist Curren$y announced via twitter that his new mixtape "New Jet City" will drop on February 3, 2013. The self procalimed "Captian of the Jets" has built a strong reputation by releasing high quality mixtapes and offering them free to his growing fan base. "New Jet City" promises to be another gem added to the impressive catalog of free music Curren$y has released.
Curren$y also released the cover art for "New Jet City" which features an iconic view of New Orleans. In a recent interview Curren$y likened the project to more of a compliation effort.
"I’ve got New Jet City - that’s more like a compilation, but it’s not because I’ll be on like five records, and maybe Roddy will drive the majority and everybody else will be on it," he said. "New Jet City is what I’m doing. That’s Curren$y Presents…New Jet City. The way I’m sketching it out in my mind, Roddy will probably drive and take the wheel on that one, like most of it. I’ll do like five, get out the way and let the homie drive.”
"New Jet City" drops February 3, 2013.
