Curren$y & Harry Fraud bless us with pure heat on “The OutRunners.”
3. RIVIERA BEACH
Curren$y and Conway The Machine unite for “Riviera Beach.”
I like the contrasting styles that you get on “Riviera Beach.” While Curren$y blesses us with a style of rapping that is smooth and lyrics that make him sound like a boss that knows how to turn women into perfect weed-smoking partners on the song, Conway The Machine blesses us with a style of rapping that is grungy and lyrics that will remind you that he is a violent n***a that loves to deal drugs. Somehow, someway, the two rappers sound like one on the song.
2. GOLD CHROME
On “Gold Chrome,” Curren$y raps effortlessly about his fake friends, crooked cops, and the Coronavirus. He also lets us know that he wants his son to know that his father was driving in the coldest cars known to man in his heyday.
I just love how Curren$y sounds completely lost in the beat that powers “Gold Chrome.” Matter of fact, I have no clue how he was able to stay awake while making the song.
1. 90′ IROC-Z
May Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y’s friendship never end!
Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa are cooler than the other side of the pillow (R.I.P. to Stuart Scott). What I love about them is that they act like two regular-degular individuals that happen to be rich-ass rappers. Spitta and Wiz decided to join forces for “90′ IROC-Z — an unbelievably smooth rap banger that features the silkiest hook, the hardest bars, and the steadiest flows I’ve ever heard in my life.
I want to play “90′ IROC-Z” while driving down a lonely road… Unfortunately, I have no reason to be on lonely roads right now.

My appreciation for Curren$y has grown a lot. In the past, I found him to be a bit boring; as of late, I find him to be an OG that knows how to drop serious raps in the sliest of ways. On The OutRunners, Curren$y dives so deep in his bag, that s**t ripped.
So what should you expect to hear on The OutRunners? Production that will make you want to visit a private beach, grown man lyrics, effortless deliveries, impregnable flows, wise words, and restorative vibes. I get it, the album might not be your cup of tea, but I think it’s something that fans of music, in general, should at least appreciate.
