First Curren$y currently is one of my favorite rappers. He's got a smooth sick flow with laid back beats and rhymes. One of the rappers I know that has a lisp. It's barely noticed. He's an underground rapper from New Orleans. But he's the kind of rapper you want to stay underground because you feel like his music will change if he get's too popular. He's been out for a minute. When he first got on the scene it was with Lil Wayne and Young Money. Honestly since he left Young Money back in '07 his music changed for the better. He's put out mixtape over mixtape over the last couple years and too albums with another one on the way. His two albums were "This Ain't No Mixtape" & "The Jet Files" and "Pilot Talk" is in the works. Just last Sunday he dropped another dope mixtape called "Smokee Robinson".
1. Your Mixtape "The First Flight" drop a couple of months ago and its everywhere in the hiphop world did you expect it to be this big?
Honestly man I had no expectations because having the name Diggy could have made it big but then just being a new artist could have limited it's shine, but it did nether of the two it got a lot of buzz because people felt real music from a young dude trying to do it man
2. What was it like making the Mixtape, writting rhymes and working with Producers?
It was all a real learning experience I didn't think it would be easy but I worked way harder on it then I thought I would have but I didn't mind it as anyone wouldn't when it came to doing what they love and what's their passion.

10 years ago today the most famous latino rapper ever. He died before the release of his second album. For a guy that was so big it was kind of amazing how good his flow was. Capital Punishment his first album is a classic in my book. Ten years after his death he is still considered as a legend in the rap game. Below I posted some videos paying homage to Big Pun. Alright now I'm gonna get off the computer and watch the Superbowl. Check the blog Audio Dope
