Curren$y Is Back With "CANAL STREET CONFIDENTIAL"

First Major Label Album Release in Over Three Years Heralded by New Single; "BOTTOM OF THE BOTTLE (FEAT. AUGUST ALSINA & LIL WAYNE)" Premieres Today; New Orleans Hip Hop Superstar to Headline Atlanta Music Festival & Conference; "CANAL STREET CONFIDENTIAL" Drops on Friday, November 6th

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 28, 2015) - Jet Life/Atlantic recording artist Curren$y has announced the release of his hugely anticipated new album. "CANAL STREET CONFIDENTIAL" -- which marks the New Orleans-based rapper's sixth full length and first major label album release in more than three years -- drops everywhere on Friday, November 6th.

"CANAL STREET CONFIDENTIAL" is preceded by the scintillating new single, "Bottom of the Bottle (Feat. August Alsina & Lil Wayne)." The track is streaming now at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzqm-KlWHh8 and available for purchase here: http://smarturl.it/CurrensyBOTB.

In addition, "CANAL STREET CONFIDENTIAL" sees Curren$y stepping up to stake his claim as one of contemporary hip hop's finest storytellers and top wordsmiths.

"This time, I really sat there with an open mind, listened, and worked with a lot of people," Curren$y says. "I would hear how crowds were reacting when I played live. Everybody loves my normal spacey, slower stuff, but when I do more up-tempo records, it's a change of pace. I wanted to transfer that and reflect it in the album. I want to make sure I got little something for everybody while staying in my style. You still know what you're getting. I'm in sweatpants, and I'm the king of being comfortable, but you've got to live a little bit too. I'm getting out of that comfort zone."

Long known as an electrifying live presence, Curren$y is currently among the headline acts slated for the upcoming Atlanta Music Festival and Conference (AC3), set to rock the ATL on October 10th. For additional live dates and regular updates, please visit www.currensyspitta.com/shows.

"CANAL STREET CONFIDENTIAL" arrives on the heels of Curren$y's latest mixtape, "EVEN MORE SATURDAY NIGHT CAR TUNES," released earlier this year via Jet Life/Atlantic. Highlighted by five all-new tracks including the lead cut, "Cars," as well as a feature appearance from Yo Gotti, the mixtape marks the latest installment in the hugely popular "SATURDAY NIGHT CAR TUNES" series.

Hailed far and wide as one of New Orleans hip-hop's finest, Curren$y arrived in 2002 as a member of the 504 Boys but quickly emerged as an in-demand solo star in his own right. A string of singles, features, and guest appearances were followed by 2009's independent debut album, "THIS AIN'T NO MIXTAPE," itself soon followed by 2010's breakthrough "PILOT TALK," the first of what has since become a classic hip-hop trilogy.

In 2011, Curren$y -- known to fans everywhere as Spitta -- founded his Jet Life apparel and lifestyle brand, highlighted by the Warner Bros. Records imprint Jet Life Recordings. "THE STONED IMMACULATE" arrived the following year and proved Curren$y's biggest success to date. Fueled by hits like "What It Look Like (Feat. Wale)" and "Jet Life (Feat. Wiz Khalifa and Big K.R.I.T.)," the album entered among the top 10 on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 as well as #2 on both Billboard's "Top Rap Albums" and "Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums" charts.

In addition to his own countless solo efforts, Curren$y has also released a number of acclaimed collaborative collections, including partnerships with Wiz Khalifa, The Alchemist, Sean O'Connell, and of course, the one and only Jet Life crew.
