(AllHipHop Music) "I just wanna feel myself, you want me to kill myself," Denzel Curry repeats on the hook of his new song, "Clout Cobain." What initially seems to be a typical trap song glorifying drugs, emerges as a weighty song on social media, voyeurism and cultural appropriation. In the video, Curry is dressed up like a demented clown in all black and white, the centerpiece of a circus. The audience is watching him, but also indulges in prescription pills and Lean (drank, Codeine, syzzurp). By the end, Curry's "suicidal thoughts" are there for the entertainment of the audience, with tragic results.
Denzel's highly-anticipated third album TA13OO will be released in three acts. The first act, Light, will be released July 25th, followed by Gray on July 26th and Dark on July 27th. Each previously-released single represents one of the album's acts, as "Sumo" represents Light, "Clout Cobain" represents Gray, and "Percs" represents Dark, which come together cohesively to form TA13OO. Across the three sections of TA13OO, Denzel explores topics including molestation, the presidential election, fame, hatred, paranoia, revenge, love, the current state of music and personal tales of his own near death experiences. Sonically, the album ranges just as widely as its subject matter, sounds of paranoia, fear of loss, brooding melancholy and mood swings straight from hell all find their way onto TA13OO, making this Denzel's most groundbreaking musical performance to date.
