Curren$y, Trademark, Young Roddy, Fiend, Corner Boy P 

When: Wed., June 8, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $16-18

Unlike Snoop, Devin the Dude or Wiz Khalifa—really all stoner stylists who've made careers out of wandering through their rhymes in a haze—New Orleans weed rapper Curren$y delivers his verses with reserved intensity. It's like he has seen a lot, but these days he prefers to just relax with a spliff and a rhyme book. His beats are warm electronic grooves that sound downright cozy in a live setting, while his spry raps focus on tiny details like the headphones he uses (noise-cancelling ones), the automobiles he prefers ('70s muscle cars) or the DVD he's currently watching (Marvin Gaye: Live in Montreux 1980). Most of the rest of the Jet Life crew pretty much perform like less nimble Curren$y soundalikes, but there's Fiend, a deep-voiced rumbler whose winter mixtape Tennis Shoes & Tuxedos is as compelling as Spitta's Pilot Talk series from last year, or April's Alchemist-assisted, soul-glitch slow burner Covert Coup. Also, Trademark, Young Roddy and Corner Boy P. $16–$18/ 9:30 p.m. —Brandon Soderberg
