Get hypnotized by rapper Curren$y's rhymes

Like the reefer he pens lyrical love letters to, rapper Curren$y's voice can sedate.

He rhymes in a stoned drawl, his words ambling by as if they were in no particular hurry to get where they're going.

Combined with alternately airy and ominous beats, Curren$y's feel-good repertoire can have a near-hypnotic effect.

Mostly, though, Curren$y provides plenty of high times without the looming specter of a failed drug test.
