Denzel Curry Spills Details About Upcoming Diplo and Skrillex Collab
Denzel Curry is never not working. The Carol City rapper and "ULT" leader just finished up a headlining tour around the U.S. and is already back in the studio, this time with new faces. The Aquarius Killa hopped on Periscope last night (May 24) and showed fans he was working with EDM producers Diplo and Skrillex. Curry let off a fresh freestyle to a beat Skrillex conjured up right there for fans to vibe to. Talk about instant gratification.
XXL hit up Denzel to get some details about how the impromptu collab came together. After Curry's manager told him that Diplo wanted to link up and work, the 21-year-old met up him. They got together with Skrillex, lit blunts, popped off fireworks and dug for samples during the session, eventually coming up with a new track.
"They told me to go in and freestyle and I was freestyling for a little bit, my voice was hoarse and then I was just like, 'I need some water...I need some water. Take your daughter, I’ma transport her, take your bitch, I’mma transform her,' all that shit and they were like 'I fuck with that.' So that’s like the hook.
"I met Diplo plenty of times, that’s my nigga. But Skrillex, he’s very quick with what he do, but he’s cool at the same time, you feel me? I definitely fuck with him after that," said Denzel.
Still unnamed, Curry confirmed the track will drop soon. "I can't say when, but I'mma drop it."
It's clear the Florida MC's artistry is maturing. His last album Imperial featured more variety in flow and subject matter than ever before and from the looks of it, Curry's opened up to working with a new array of producers for his next project. Diplo has worked with rappers like Migos, iLoveMakonnen and Gucci Mane while Skrillex has production credits with Vic Mensa, A$AP Ferg and A$AP Rocky to his name.
