13 Songs, 43 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Despite his presence at the forefront of South Florida’s lo-fi rap explosion—due in part to his meme-generating “Ultimate” single—Denzel Curry remains one of his state’s more under-heralded talents. Not unlike his standout Planet Shrooms/32 Zel project, TA13OO indulges the MC’s continuously shifting moods, this time separated into three acts Curry calls “Light,” “Gray,” and “Dark.” “I was in a dark space when I was working on the dark part,” he told Beats 1 host Zane Lowe. “I was trynna work on the light part when I was working toward my happiness.” The result—from the balmy funk of the Light act’s “CASH MANIAC” (featuring a standout chorus from newcomer Nyyjerya) to the lyrical pummeling of “BLACK METAL TERRORIST”—is an album that highlights Curry's uncanny ability to match mosh-pit-inciting energy with complex and flowery bars.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Expected more

I expected more from this album, I mean only 13 songs and some of them are just over two minutes? Also, what was the point of the three sides of the album if they all sound the same? Other than the first three songs on light everything sounds the same, even Sumo which is on the "light" side of the album sounds like it should be on the "dark" side. I just don't know what he was going for on this album, the first few tracks had a message to them but then after that for the rest of the album it's just him zoning out and it feels like filler.

I know it’s not out

This album hasn’t released yet, but I can assure you it’s the best album to ever be dropped.
