Rapping over beats from Jay-Z songs is a feat few MCs would dare to attempt, and with good reason. The magic that HOV drops over even the simplest of sounds forever makes it his and his alone. But if there’s one rapper who’s willing to tempt fate, and do so succesffuly, it’s Curren$y. In “Ways To Kill Em”, Spitta takes Jigga’s Stick To The Script”, from 2000’s The Dynasty: Roc La Familia, and spins the old school banger into something as smooth as a glass pipe. The accompanying video, available below, even sees the MC practice his Dead Island skills. Watch the stamina bar, yo!
Curren$y’s latest mixtape, Verde Terrace, is available now.
