Denzel Curry, the 22-year-old rapper from Carol City, Florida, isn’t one to sidestep the hard questions


Having recently emerged as one of the Florida underground’s most vibrant young talents Denzel Curry is one of its best candidates for breakthrough success in the mainstream.

Originally a member of the SpaceGhostPurrp-founded collective Raider Klan, Curry quickly distinguished himself as one of the network’s sharpest pens. The collective writ large was noted for reviving flows and production motifs that had been popular elsewhere in the South – particularly in Memphis – during the ’90s, but Denzel also cited influences like Nas and MF DOOM; he can recount in detail the time he first heard Lupe Fiasco’s Kick Push on the radio and asked his mom for Food & Liquor.

As the sounds Denzel explored on the EPs moved even further into vogue -and as fans and critics started to come around to the new material – he pulled yet another bait-and-switch. Released last year, Imperial was both his finest work to date and his best received. The brief, breathless album showcases his near-peerless technical skill along with a newfound maturity in his songwriting.
