New Orleans rapper Curren$y , released his Hot Summer Nights EP back in August, and now he is back with a new version with the help of a few rapper colleagues.
The original had no features, but Hot August Nights Forever has each track sporting a guest verse, whether it be from Rick Ross on "Must Admit", DC Young Fly on "Caught Her Looking", Styles P on "Another Score", or G-Eazy on "Right Now".
This new update on the original has the same relaxed feel as the first, making this EP an easy listen for your car.
“Eyes Closed” emphasizes the theme of cruising during the late night. This track will seem slightly nostalgic to Curren$y’s longtime fan base with his witty slick talk and catchy rhymes.
“Know It” attracts the audience with a simple guitar riff on the track and the feature with T.Y. takes the song up a notch with his hype flow.
"Another Score" gives Curren$y room to show off his easygoing flow with this slow beat. The track pays homage to slain rapper Nipsey Hussle using his track "Racks in the Middle" as a sample. This song is a perfect vibe for those that like to show off their cash flow and success.
The remix to "Never Had" is more of an addition to the original rather than a contrast. Listeners should listen to both of them together to get the story of the track. Producer duo Nard & B take you through the journey of this chilled-out, bud-reminiscent vibe.
In a sense, looking at the long discography of this artist, this could be considered one of his weakest works. In hindsight, a rapper with back-to-back albums and EP’s can get away with a couple weak songs.
