Denzel Curry has shared his latest single, “Zatoichi,” featuring slowthai. On the song, Curry’s verses are laid over a powerful drum and bass instrumental. “Zatoichi” is also accompanied by a music video inspired by the Japanese samurai movie character Walkin and the film Kill Bill Vol. 2. As Curry transitions away from his era of theatrical characters and alter egos, we see a new creative side of him that was once veiled.
For his upcoming album, Melt My Eyez See Your Future, Curry is attempting to hit a different note with audiences. The rapper says: “I like traditional hip hop, I like drum and bass, I like trap, I like poetry, so a lot of that is going to be interwoven in this album including jazz and a lot of genres that I came up on as a kid and just being in my parents’ house. This album is made up of everything that I couldn’t give you on TA13OO or Imperial because I was going through depression anger issues.”
This project will follow Curry’s 2019 release Zuu. Curry’s upcoming album features notable artists such as T-Pain, Rico Nasty, JID, 6lack, Thundercat, Robert Glasper, and JPEGMAFIA.
