Denzel Curry, 2019

Denzel Curry season has approached faster than we expected. Not even a year out from his last album, TABOO, a standout release in 2018, Curry is back with ZUU, coming Friday, May 31.

The album has Curry's signature raucous energy and fire, but with a twist—he spits the whole thing off the dome. In a new interview with HotNewHipHop, Curry revealed his process as fluid as ever.

"I freestyled the whole [album]," he said. "Went from mind to mic. The pen and the pad is the middle-man if you already know what you’re going to say."

He continued: "I just wanted to keep it simple and plain. Straight to the point. Just get down to business. Forget the dilly-dallying."

Not only is this exceptionally impressive, but it also reflects in the impact and intensity of the album. ZUU is a biting and cutting affair; there is nary a moment of hesitation. Curry does not let up on the album, making it one of the most bombastic releases of 2019. Making good shit is Curry's only focus.

When midnight strikes, we're sure you'll all agree.
