Curren$y at Club Cinema November 3

Do y'all know anything about currency trading? Every financial expert we've talked to says it's probably best to stay away from the foreign exchange market because it's purely based on speculation. But when we asked about investing in Curren$y, the New Orleans rapper whose popularity has shown steady growth since 2009's This Ain't No Mixtape, nearly every money manager familiar with the MC said, "Go for it, homie." After all, Curren$y's on record projecting a nine-figure 2012. "Oh yeah, man, I'm going to make $100 million this year," Curren$y told Forbes this past February. "No doubt, $100 million. The new mixtape [will] get everybody ready and get their wallets open." It is simple economics, folks. Give people a taste of what they want for free, like a mixtape, follow it up with a $12.99 studio record like The Stoned Immaculate, Curren$y's latest, and take the rest of their money on a promotional club tour. Hello, fat profits.
