#HITSBLUNT: French Montana & Curren$y Didn’t Actually Make Two Different Songs Called ‘In The Sun’

I was 100% convinced French and Spitta already made a song called ‘In The Sun’ once back in 2010, but TWIST it turns out that song was actually called ‘So High’ (it’s above). It was the chorus that was throwing me off, plus the song was actually labeled as ‘In The Sun’ on several (unofficial?) occasions. The new song off Casino Life 2 that is actually called ‘In The Sun’ (below) isn’t quite as good as the old one, but still good for summering purposes.

Nice lil warm weather rap mix by Yung Skinny Friedman, for Wacks Records. Great range here, with this years staple ’10 Freaky Hoes’ sitting comfortably alongside Future/Andre 3000, a very based piece of the Mario Bros. OST and a bonafide classic backpacker jam from the yonder days of Stones Throw.
 
Tracklist:
100s – 10 freaky hoes
crnkn – only you
dom kennedy f/ skeame – pleaze
yg f/ tory lanez – me and my bitch
michael christmas – taco truck
super mario world – ghost house
future fambo – single
mr carmack – hopscotch
doughboyz cashout – house on the hill
future f/ andre 3000 – watchutola
curren$y f/ mary gold – el camino
kazi f/ madlib – a.v.e.r.a.g.e.

First there was Yacht Rap, and it was good. Then there was Low Speed Chase, and that was also good. Now comes the next saga in the continuous rap-adventures of Chad. Still aboard Morgengruss X, adrift somewhere in (warm) parts unknown, Mr. Sexington linked up with Messrs. Grizzly and Note of Purple Tape Pedigree/Fresh Out The Box Radio to compile another set of smoothplayalisticyachtmuzik anthems for your enjoyment. So once again, douse the supermodels in Dom Pérignon’52 until their sarongs are see-through and enjoy.

LG – World Winds (Mixtape)

Another good effort from LG with some really strong standouts, but it does lag in spots and could stand to be a few tracks shorter. LG is an interesting case – his peaks are so damn high they make everything else look worse by comparison. So even though there aren’t really any bad tracks on here, the disparity between great highlights like ‘Goon Orleans’ and the other songs that are just OK becomes mildly frustrating.

LG – Battlefield Ft. Curren$y

Not quite on the same level of smooth catchy awesomeness as ‘I’m Good’ or ‘Kool & The Gang’. It’s more like the kind of good but not very flashy song that would mesh well with more attention-grabbing singles in creating a consistent mixtape where the highlights don’t blow the low points out of the water. A feature from Curren$y never hurts either way.

Curren$y & Harry Fraud – Cigarette Boats EP

This EP left a stronger impression on me with 5 songs than Stoned Immaculate did with roughly 20 (counting bonus tracks). The last Curren$y release that I liked this much was Covert Coupe, also an EP. Furthermore, every Curren$y mixtape and album between Covert Coupe and this one has been uneven but could’ve been cut down to a great short EP. Maybe EPs are the optimal format for him, especially if each one pairs him with a specific producer…
 
To give credit where it’s due, Harry Fraud is a big reason for the success of this thing. His production is one of the best suited to Curren$y’s style, up there with Ski and Monsta Beatz.
