Who is Currensy?

Shante Anthony Franklin (born April 4, 1981), better known by his stage name Curren$y, is an American rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana.

As a teenager, he was signed to Master P’s No Limit Records until 2005.He then signed withLil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment, where he remained there until late 2007. While still at Young Money, Curren$y created Fly Society with skateboarder Terry Kennedy, first as a clothing company, then expanding to release music. He released the song, “Where Da Cash At” as the lead single for his Young Money debut, Music to Fly to, in 2006 but due to several push backs and lack of promotion, Curren$y decided to leave the label and venture off to do business on his own.

For several months, Curren$y released a series of mixtapes to gain notoriety. His work was impressive enough to land him on the cover of the XXL Magazine Freshmen 10 of 2009.Though he now had the cosign of one of the top hip-hop magazines, Curren$y was still overlooked by major labels. He then chose to sign with Amalgam Digital to release his debut album, This Ain’t No Mixtape , in 2009.

Curren$y would release another album through Amalgam Digital titled Jet Files.He currently has a new album Pilot Talk which was scheduled for a June 15, 2010 release under Roc-A-Fella Records distributed through Def Jam but it has since been moved back to July 13, 2010.
