Although 2016 might’ve been his breakout year, where he inked a new deal & went on a nationwide tour, rising Florida rapper Denzel Curry has been really capitalizing off his momentum this year & taking the next step in his career. Back in June, Denzel treated fans to a 5-track EP called 13, which he put it simply because he was bored & to hold the fans over.
“The reason why I put out the 13 EP is because I got bored. I wanted to supply my fans with something,” Denzel explained. “I knew I couldn’t give them the stuff from the album. The album’s not even done yet. It’s almost done, but it’s not done yet, and I want to make sure it’s perfect to a tee before I even think about releasing anything.”
Having spent all Summer long working on the highly anticipated debut album Taboo, Denzel gave fans a preview of what’s to come last month when he shared a snippet on Instagram, which caught a lot of buzz & attention at the time. But now, four weeks later, the record, titled “Skywalker,” has officially arrived on Apple Music/ Spotify.
Going in over production from Ronny J, Denzel delivers a boisterous & energetic record that finds showcasing his rapping/singing flow, while addressing life in the streets among other things. Following up his latest feature to Lunice’s “Distrust,” take a listen to Denzel’s new single & let us know what you think. If you’re fan, be sure to show your support on iTunes, and keep your eyes peeled for updates on the upcoming Taboo album.
