Today, Denzel Curry is back to share a new video for “Clout Cobain”. Watch HERE. The visual follows Denzel‘s previously-released tracks “Percs” and “Sumo“, and finds him at the centre of a twisted, drug-addled circus as he contemplates the cyclical nature of temporary fame and being a pawn in the hands of the industry. The visual’s concept is by Denzel CurryMark Maturahand director Zev Deans, serving as a statement of the juxtaposition artists struggle with today, attempting to be themselves while being under constant scrutiny to entertain and follow trends to stay afloat and hold on to “Clout“. Denzel acts as that centrepiece in this metaphor, he’s the star of the show as the clown but under the control of the ringmaster and at the discretion of the crowd. “Clout Cobain” is an inspirational wake-up call to fellow artists and their fans that this cyclical modern day minstrel show does end lives prematurely and ultimately, it’s the artists who can break the influence of the industry’s ringmasters.

Along with the visual, Denzel is announcing that his highly-anticipated third album TA13OO will be released in three acts. The first act, Light, will be released July 25th, followed by Gray on July 26th and Dark on July 27th. Each previously-released single represents one of the album’s acts, as “Sumo” represents Light, “Clout Cobain” represents Gray, and “Percs” represents Dark, which come together cohesively to form TA13OO. Across the three sections of TA13OODenzel explores topics including molestation, the presidential election, fame, hatred, paranoia, revenge, love, the current state of music and personal tales of his own near death experiences. Sonically, the album ranges just as widely as its subject matter, sounds of paranoia, fear of loss, brooding melancholy and mood swings straight from hell all find their way onto TA13OO, making this Denzel‘s most groundbreaking musical performance to date.

TA13OO is the first longform statement from Denzel since his 2016 album Imperial, which landed him on the XXL Freshman cover and helped set the template for the South Florida sound that has exploded in the last few years. The album bridges the gap between the older generation of hip hop and the budding generation of SoundCloud rappers that he helped birth in sound and style, all while commanding respect from them both with lethal lyricism and deeply personal storytelling.

Watch “Clout Cobain” above, find the previously released “Percs” and “Sumo“, full tour routing and more info on TA13OO below, and stay tuned for more from Denzel Curry.

LOW HEAT 010: Denzel will also be stopping by the Boiler Room studio tonight (Thu 12) to perform new tracks as part of a special Black Balloons show. RSVP HERE
