Miama-area rapper Denzel Curry balances rhymes packed with intense and introspective content and an evolving production palette that can draw upon hazy cloud rap and classic hip-hop songcraft. After issuing a series of well-received mixtapes in the early 2010s, he made his official studio debut with 2013’s underground favourite Nostalgic 64, later entering the charts for the first time with his 2018 major-label debut TA1300.
This month, Denzel Curry shared a new single, marking his first official release since his critically-acclaimed breakout album TA13OO in 2018. "RICKY," named after Denzel's father, is an introspective look at his childhood in Miami, with Denzel delivering powerful memories from his youth and detailing the wisdom his father passed down to him.
The single's accompanying video, directed by "BLACK BALLOONS" collaborator Twelve'len, captures scenes of Denzel's childhood in Miami. The video was filmed in the backyard of MMA and brawling legend Dada 5000, where Dawg Fight, the documentary on the backyard brawling scene in Miami, was filmed. Denzel's late brother Treon was actively involved in backyard brawling and often fought in this same yard during Denzel's childhood. The video also features Dada 5000 as a referee and an appearance by Chocolate, a fighter who was featured in the documentary.
The new single arrives as Denzel gears up to join Billie Eilish on tour across North America, beginning May 29 in San Francisco and ending July 13 in San Diego, with festival appearances at Lollapalooza, Osheaga and Outside Lands to follow in August. Denzel will then join the $uicideBoy$ on a North American tour run beginning July 27 in San Diego and concludes August 23 in Los Angeles.
