New Orleans rapper Curren$y made his early statements on Birdman’s controversial Cash Money label in 2004. In 2010, Curren$y released his masterwork to date — Pilot Talk, the first album of a recently completed three-part series. Though the followups have yet to deliver on Pilot Talk’s flirtations with stardom, the new effort, III, is still a strong effort of Southern rap. On “Pot Jar,” over a gorgeous Bobby Womack sample, Curren$y is at the top of his gloating game: “Certified dope on three coasts / bread healthy, wheat toast.” $30, 7pm, The Korova, 107 E Martin, (210) 226-5070
