Psycho – [Denzel Curry] x [Slowthai]

Denzel Curry and Slowthai have linked up for an exciting collaborative track today titled “Psycho”. This Florida x UK collaboration seems to have a lot of potential on paper, and once you hit play on the song, both artists capitalize on that momentum by feeding off each other’s explosive energy. As they trade aggressive bars back and forth, they’re pieced together through a piercing horror-film inspired beat made by Kwes Darko. The producer’s mix of ominous strings, booming drums, and heavy distortion allow Curry and Slowthai’s verses to hit with a level of rawness that fits each of their own styles. “Psycho” comes right in time for Slowthai’s US tour and ahead of Curry’s European tour, and hopefully they add this track to their respective setlists as it would be the perfect soundtrack for a mosh pit. Listen to “Psycho” below:

Awake – [Tkay Maidza] ft. [JPEGMAFIA]

Next time you’re awake at 3:00 AM with seemingly no sight of falling asleep, you’ll have to take Tkay Maidza and JPEGMAFIA’s new collaborative track, entitled “Awake”, for a spin. I can’t say it will help your cause of catching some z’s (if anything, this high energy track will keep you up), but at least you’ll be able to resonate with this track knowing that you aren’t alone.  It only takes about twenty seconds to realize that this track is a smash. The blistering bass, along with Tkay’s commanding delivery on the hook makes for nothing short of a hit. To top it all off, JPEGMAFIA, who just dropped one of the best singles of the year, is featured on the track, and absolutely kills his verse, bringing his signature energy to the song and adding to its late-night intensity. The bass-powered production and lively Peggy feature is reminiscent of Denzel Curry’s “Vengeance” , and I highly recommend fans of that track to check this one out. Don’t sleep on this banger, check it out on Spotify here, and view the jarring visuals, which features an alternate ending, down below!

Watch Juice WRLD’s brand new interview with No Jumper

No Jumper has always been a great platform to find awesome interviews with some of the hottest new artists in the game, but Adam22 has really been pumping out some great interviews this past week one after another. First he had in-depth interview with the legend Young Thug, he also recently sat down with one of my favorite rappers Denzel Curry for a great conversation, and now he is back with his latest interview featuring the Chicago phenom Juice WRLD! When these two sit down and speak it feels more like two old friends chopping it up as opposed to your regular old interview, and they really packed a ton of cool topics into this fifteen minute conversation. Adam asked Juice about things such as how it feels to have blown up so fast, touring overseas, why he enjoys being in a relationship, live streaming, writing “Lucid Dreams” in twenty minutes, being a great freestyler, conspiracy theories, his homies Polo G + G Herbo, all of the talent coming out of Chicago right now, his fashion sense and robbing scammers. I am sure it won’t be too long before Adam drops another great interview off for us, but until then …

Headspace – [Billy Davis] ft. [Jordan Dennis] & [KYE]

Whether you celebrated the holiday with a sea of beer, hot dogs, and fireworks, or simply took it easy hopefully you got a chance to take a break from the usual grind. Stopping to take a breath every once and a while is just as important as the grind! Just ask Billy Davis about the power of some “Headspace.” Even amidst making a budding career — collaborating with the likes of Denzel Curry and Goldlink — the Australian-born producer took a step back to collect himself following the death of his mother. Returning with “Headspace,” it’s clear the break did him well, because his bouncy, electronic-twinged board work is teeming with a fresh, exciting energy. To help bring his message to life, and fit the colorful, upbeat atmosphere, Billy recruited Jordan Dennis who lays down a charismatic verse, placed between a warm hook from KYE. Refreshing, fun, and positive, Billy Davis’ latest might be the break you need.

Denzel Curry: Retracing Roots

“I think about how my art is going to be reflected when I’m gone.” This is something Denzel Curry said to me during our conversation just moments before his stellar performance for 5,000 people in Boston this past Friday in support of Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep tour. Denzel has been an artist that I’ve held in high regard over the years because I’ve been able to recognize his dedication to the art, and to hear him talk about his passion for the craft was inspiring. Denzel Curry has been rapping for about eight years now, and by the young age of twenty-four, he’s already passed huge milestones in the game of rap due to his impressive work ethic and unwavering artistic integrity. Not only does he have an incredible discography under his belt, but he’s already garnered a noticeable impact on the genre of rap at such a young age, all while constantly growing, evolving, and refining his output in the process. On a widespread scale, many fans became aware of Curry after his track “Ultimate” turned into a viral internet sensation, becoming the “water-bottle-flipping” song just a few years back. Even this track though, as big …

Flamagra – [Flying Lotus]

Music is designed to make us feel. Regardless of what that feeling is, music that has staying power makes the listener feel something. Flying Lotus does this impeccably, taking listeners on an airy and mystical journey with his brand new project Flamagra, released yesterday. It is a twenty-seven track project, clocking out around an hour and some change, which makes for a collection of short and sweet tracks that don’t drag on the way one would expect a long project to. The instrumentals on here range from groovy and jazz-influenced, to wonky and glitchy, containing intricacies all over that result in a double take from the listener. Flamagra comes together to make for an overall cohesive listening experience that only becomes more intriguing as it progresses. The instrumentals FlyLo arranges on here evoke passion and creativity through dense and intricately developed textures, from the atmospheric and ambient “Hot Oct.”, to the danceable “Heroes in a Half Shell.” There are also a number of fantastic guest appearances on here. Tierra Whack’s charismatic contribution to “Yellow Belly” is incredible, and Denzel Curry brings his aggressive yet attentive delivery to “Black Balloons Reprise”, which serves as a sequel to his own “Black Balloons” …

RICKY – [Denzel Curry]

The ascension of Denzel Curry has been one of rap’s most rewarding sights to see in recent memory. Not only is the Florida artist’s catalog competitive with the best of them, but the sheer improvement and energy shown throughout all of his releases is a story for the ages. Needless to say, it’s always going to be a great day when Curry blesses us with a new release, and today, he’s here to impress with an undisputable banger and complementary visual, “RICKY.” Titled as a tribute to his father, this haymaker-inducing song takes fans to the backyard, where the striking intensity of street fights goes down in front of an enthusiastic crowd. All throughout the in-your-face vigor of the deliveries, Curry drops off some enticing pieces of advice from several family members, and resulting is a heavy emphasis placed on the wisdom and lessons imparted through the budding star’s upbringing. That said, this family-minded release brings fans much deeper into the animated world of Denzel Curry, so don’t sleep — “RICKY” is a must-watch and a must-listen!

Sunday Service (Edit) – [Jarreau Vandal] x [Denzel Curry]

Remix mastermind Jarreau Vandal is no stranger to flipping a song and making it his own, with many of his signature edits gaining viral attention. For his latest edit, the Amsterdam-based producer and DJ channels the spirit of Yeezus and puts his own spin on Kanye’s weekly Sunday Service performances. Inspired by the video of Kanye sampling Fred Hammond’s  “This Is the Day”, Vandal decided to add his spin to the epic gospel choir. After teasing the re-work on IG, Vandal unsurprisingly started to catch attention for the clip. He even caught the ears of Denzel Curry, who couldn’t resist hopping on the beat himself. Curry adds his explosive energy to the already glorious production, letting loose a verse that feels like it could go on forever. Peep the final result of Vandal and Curry’s take on Kanye’s Sunday Service below:
