denzelcurry-nostalgic64

Normally, in any given week, I will download one or two of the more popular urban mixtapes, and quite honestly, most of them find a home in my recycling bin. However, after one of my friends adamantly recommended the following, it has been on repeat all week walking between classes. Denzel Curry is an 18 year old Miami-based rhymer who’s years ahead of his time. Listening to his most recent album Nostalgic 64, one cannot help but notice that brings together upper-echelon cadence and rhyme schemes with street sensibility similar to other current popular artists such as A$AP Ferg and Travi$ Scott. Not entirely sure what conceptually unifies this 14-track collection, but it’s live. Whether or not this is your typical listen, I highly suggest stepping out of your comfort zone and giving this a listen. Stream the entire project via DJ Booth here. Support via iTunes.
