RIYL: SoundCloud rap
Label: Loma Vista
South Florida rapper Denzel Curry has followed up his 2016 full-length Imperial with the much-anticipated TA13OO, a 13-track concept album separated into 3 sections: the light, the grey and the dark.¬† From eery cavernous beats in the vein of Danny Brown¬†on tracks like Mad I Got It¬†to uplifting Chance-style ‘almost-gospel’ jams like Black Balloons, TA13OO¬†dips its toes into¬†many different styles and tones.¬†¬†Denzel’s lyrical themes¬†are just as eclectic¬†as the instrumentals, from the darker¬†moments in his own autobiography¬†on Taboo to the politically-charged Sirens to the complexities of celebrity and suicide on Clout Cobain.
There’s a ton to digest here, but I think this is undoubtedly one of the strongest hip hop albums of the year so far.¬† Denzel’s singing voice is just as distinguished as his insane flow.¬† If you dug Tyler’s Flower Boy¬†as much as me, then this one is gonna hit you right in the pleasure zone.¬† Limited picture discs are available after the ‘buy’ link, but if you’re afraid of the sound quality, then grab the red vinyl HERE.¬† Listen to the whole album below.
Limited Edition TA1300 Picturedisc featuring unique artwork on both sides enclosed in iridescent foil sleeve.
