Curren$Y Canal Street Confidential Tour Pdx On Nov.14 says
Tastemaker Live & Sean Healy present "The Canal Street Confidential Tour" starring Curren$y performing live in Portland at the Hawthorne Theater, Saturday, November 14th, 2015. Tickets are on sale now at all the link listed above. This is an All Ages event.

Born Shante Anthony Franklin and raised in New Orleans, Curren$y was originally signed to Master P’s No Limit label, but in 2005 he made the move to Lil Wayne and Birdman’s Cash Money imprint, Young Money. He appeared on Wayne’s Tha Carter II album that same year, then in 2006, Curren$y's “Where da Cash At” single was released -- both on its own and as part of Wayne’s Dedication 2 mixtape -- but a promised album never materialized.

Not one to sit idle, Curren$y started Fly Society with professional skateboarder Terry Kennedy in 2007. In early 2010 he joined the Def Jam family via Damon Dash’s DD172 imprint. With the label’s in-house producer Ski Beatz handling most of the production on both, Curren$y's Pilot Talk album appeared in July of that year, with Pilot Talk II landing in 2010. The stopgap release Weekend at Burnie's followed in 2011, with the retro backing tracks coming from producer Monsta Beatz.

In 2015, the album Pilot Talk III was released on a $100.00 USB key made available from the rapper's Jet Life website, while the EP Even More Saturday Night Car Tunes landed through more traditional distribution channels. That same year, the "Bottom of the Bottle" single featuring Lil Wayne and August Alsina appeared right before the release of Canal Street Confidential, an album where the MC toured and road-tested the songs before he decided on the final track list.
