Following the release of his tenth studio album The Out Runners, Curren$y returns with a brand new mixtape called The Director’s Cut. Made with longtime cohort Harry Fraud, the latest project features nine tracks with guest appearances by Trippie Red, Larry June, Snoop Dogg and Styles P.
Initially, The Director’s Cut was supposed to be a deluxe version to The Outrunners, but the rapper decided to release it as a standalone project. In regards to the mixtape, Curren$y expressed on Instagram: “9/18 me and @harryfraud strike back it’s not a deluxe album it’s the directors cut of an underground film, that garnered a nice bit of mainstream notoriety …. #theoutrunnersDirectorsCut alternate ending, added scenes, secret characters and verses unlocked….. we ridin out on Friday new visuals as well!”
Curren$y also tweeted about how Snoop’s appearance in nine-track project came about. “Hit Snoop at 7am for a verse… I’m like ‘yo it drops at midnight tonight so You’d have to get it back to me within a few hours,’” Curren$y tweeted. “Had it back before I finished my breakfast…love u legendary uncle @SnoopDogg .. this next jernt is smoke is for u!!Sh*ts a buzzer beater slam dunk.”
