[PILOT TALK] Way back in 2010, when “cloud rap” was the buzz term du jour of the hip-hop blogosphere, Louisiana’s Curren$y was a frequent trending topic. With his limber, perma-stoned flow, he was the ideal MC for a time when beats were nearly as lifted as the dudes rapping over them. Since then, the former No Limit Soldier has released a zillion mix tapes while sounding like he’s never bothered to leave his barcalounger. After a while, though, laid-back starts to come across as lazy. And as artists from Killer Mike to Kanye have moved to put the “boom” back in boom-bap, his style now seems less high-as-fuck than just really sleepy.
