Curren$y

When: Sun., May 22 2011

From a pop kitsch perspective, Curren$y's "Michael Knight" video — which pays homage to an '80s David Hasselhoff series — may be your best introduction to the New Orleans rapper's skills and sensibilities. Unless, of course, you're a total stoner, in which case you can start with pretty much anything. A former protégé of both Lil Wayne and Master P, the much-buzzed emcee's career has been in full blaze since he signed to Warner Bros. earlier this year. He's got a new Alchemist-produced mixtape called Covert Coup, and is following up with another album, Weekend at Burnie's, in late June. Tonight's all-ages 8 o'clock show at the Black Sheep (2106 E. Platte Ave., blacksheeprocks.com) could be one of those rare "saw him back in the day" gigs, so don't sleep on this one. With Corner Boy P, Fiend, Young Roddy and Trademark, $18 in advance, $20 at the door. — Bill Forman
