Like a collaborative project conceived on a hip-hop blog's message board in 2012, Fetti is an underground rap fan's dream come true. At just nine tracks--some as brief as a minute and 40 seconds--the tape is a short, sweet, and potent mix of what Curren$y, Freddie Gibbs, and producer Alchemist do best. It is also an example of the good that can happen when seasoned vets link up and operate under the radar and outside of the major label system.
In the weeks leading up to the release of 'Fetti', Curren$y and Freddie Gibbs had been teasing fans with their social media back and forth. With Alchemist having already completed his work on the production, the main dialogue between the rappers involved who needed to finish their verses in order for this anticipated album to be released. Eventually, they set a date for the project's unveiling that brought excitement to a new high, bringing together a trio that was first heard in 2011 on 'Scottie Pippens' - a standout track from Curren$y & Alchemist's first joint project 'Covert Coup'.
