The latest video from Curren$y’s Jet Life label compilation Jet World Order takes place during a swank condo party that feels as much achievable as aspirational. Over cosmopolitan production by Show Off, Curren$y drops a strong verse, letting us know that he's been bumping Miles Davis and still uses his Playstation for watching DVDs. But it's Cool Kid Sir Michael Rocks who might turn a few heads. The Jet Life signee made noise this year, with singles like "Cell Dope" and the timely "Too $hort Back," which coincidentally surfaced right around the same time as false Twitter rumors of Short's demise. Rocks steals the show on "1st Place," dynamically switching up his flow and grabbing some of the song's most memorable lines: So you better watch her or she mine, man/ Ain't no ring on her finger like Lebron hand.
