New Orleans saw stars coming from all over to experience All-Star Weekend, but local heroes were well represented by the likes of Birdman, Mannie Fresh, Jay Electronica, The Hot 8 Brass Band, and Curren$y.

Just like the rest of that Big Easy-born and bred crew performing at the Bud Light Crew HQ, Curren$y was excited about the NBA bringing their activity-packed weekend to Bayou. He also talked to us about all the projects that he's got going on in 2017.

He tells us he's working with Raekwon and Fabolous, and that he's got a whole project on the way with Sonny Digital. Not coincidentally, he just dropped a new mixtape called Jet Life All-Stars, featuring collaborations with Sonny, and Smoke DZA. Five of the songs off that mixtape can be streamed now, with the other five coming very soon.

Sounds like a lot of work but, as he says, it doesn't feel like it.
