Denzel Curry - 13LOOD IN + 13LOOD OUT MIXX

An amazingly energetic start to 2020 that concludes the decade of the Internet rap. 🔥

If there is an Internet rap today, its source must be found in the emergence of prolific and sprawling collectives at the dawn of the 2010s. Odd Future is one of them, of course, like the Raider Klan. Even if they emancipated themselves from their original mentors (Curry, for instance, got into trouble with SpaceGhostPurrp), all these people still have a lot in common: whatever their origins, they have appropriated the music, the codes and the nihilistic posture of Southern rap in general, from the one developed in Memphis around 1995, to the trap style of the 2000's. But they also know how to defend a lyrical, committed and meaningful rap, one that is appreciated by old-school heads, nostalgic for the 90s and those who, rock fans included, consider that rap must have certain ambitions or artistic desires.

Denzel Curry's most recent release, "13LOOD IN", embodies all this. It's pure Internet rap of the 2010's and it concludes the decade perfectly. First of all, because it is only available on the web: presented as a short mixtape or an EP, it is not distributed on streaming platforms but on free sites or on Youtube. In eight tracks, Denzel Curry offers very explosive content with always that dark touch that characterizes his music. It is important to note that no track is too much in this short project, it is what it should be: hardcore, punchy, energetic and short. It's with a desire to dive back into it that we usually finish "13LOOD IN".

If "Imperial" is the most successful project of Denzel Curry's career, "Ta1300" the most ambitious and "ZUU" the funniest, this first release of 2020 doesn't pretend to be the next one but rather to offer to the artist's fans a project where the rapper lets himself go with percussive memphis rap bangers that will make you shake your head from the beginning to the end, waiting for the next album.

Best tracks: "EVIL TWIN", "CHARLIE SHEEN", "FALSE GODS FREESTYLE", "GOGETA".

Worst track: "NO PEN NO PAD"
