Idk “Once Upon a Time (Freestyle)” Video With Denzel Curry: Watch Rappers Take It Back to the Essence
Idk and Denzel Curry left the bells and whistles at home and kept it gritty for the video to their equally-gritty collab, "Once Upon a Time (Freestyle)".
The Finatik N Zac-produced song lives on Idk's Idk & Friends :) album that was released in November, and highlights both artists' supreme skills on the mic.
"As I constantly try to evolve just like a Togepi/Keep my pockets thick as The Parkers, Professor Oglevee," Denzel raps on the opening verse. "No one's sick as me, have the common cold, catch a cold from me/Isn't it ironic the younger me is the older me?"
Not to be outdone on his own track, Idk comes equally as hard.
"My times table never was good at the time I was nine/At seventeen, I was forced in a 9-to-the-5," he spits. "So nine times out of 10, I'm despising the eyes of the greedy ones/All around me like some fucking flies, get away."
Idk and Denzel were both supporting acts on A$AP Ferg's Mad Man Tour in 2017, and the pair clearly hit it off. "Once Upon a Time (Freestyle)" marks the fifth time they've collaborated on a song in just 2018 alone, following Idk’s “No Wave,” A$AP Ferg’s “Kristi,” Denzel Curry’s “Uh Huh,” and Powers Pleasant’s “Please Forgive.”
