Slant Magazine: “House Playlist: Curren$y, the Fresh & Onlys, the Go! Team, and Jamiroquai”


Wrote something about Curren$y’s “Michael Knight” for the new singles column over at The House Next Door, Slant Magazine’s blog…

Over producer Ski Beatz’s pairing of kung fu movie music and elegant G-funk, New-York-by-way-of-New-Orleans rapper Curren$y crams three casually intricate verses into less than three minutes—and finds a place for a delightfully absurd Knight Rider-referencing hook, complete with KITT sound effects. Filled with pothead punchlines (“I got high enough so I could autograph the sky”), wonky wordplay (“car windows” rhymed with “Carl Winslow”), and a few marvels of internal rhyming (“Everything with wings ain’t a plane, man” via his Southern accent becomes “Everythayng with wayngs ain’t a plane mayne”), this track from next month’s Pilot Talk 2 is more strangely beautiful, deceptively simple, chill-out rap from a guy getting ridiculously good at this sort of thing.

  1. I was curious about if you ever considered adjusting the page layout of your blog? Its well written; I really like what you have got to say. But maybe you can add a little more in the way of written content so people can connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you can space it out better?
