Daarna volgen de albums Imperial (2016) en TA13OO (2018). Op zijn eerste platen brengt hij een mix van hiphop en felle trap.

A former member of SpaceGhostPurrp's Raider Klan , Denzel Curry is one of the precursors of the new generation of electro coming out of Florida. Now joined by such wild men as Smokepurrp, Ski Mask Da Slump God or the late XXXTentacion, Denzel has created a complex mix, which has been much-covered by his peers. To sum it up, his music is a mixture of very technical rap in the tradition of Memphis and the Three 6 Mafia and a rather more elevated psychedelic tendency taken from Outkast and the Dungeon Family. A pure product of the SoundCloud generation, he made waves with Nostalgic 64 (2013) and then Imperial (2016). At the age of just 23, Denzel Curry shows a disarming maturity and an unflagging versatility on TA13oo, his most ambitious album to date.Taking all his concepts to the limit, TA13oo is an open-ended and multifaceted exploration. With J.I.D., Goldlink and JPEGMafia, the album is made up of three distinct parts that move from light to darkness. Taking energy from the power of black metal as much as from the electronic experiments of Arca or Aphex Twin, TA13oo is a panoramic work that defies classification. The result is sometimes noisy and impenetrable, and very often urgent and balanced. Denzel Curry's personality shines through as he links together all these apparently-opposing elements. With little social and political touches, always a witness to the sufferings to today's youth, his writing is made up of little underwater explosions which build into a tsunami. Grenades like Sumo, Vengeance and Clout Cobain brought Denzel Curry to the level of great epic set-pieces, a strong point of his. TA13oo marks a new stage in this artist's already-bustling career, and presents him as a clear leader in contemporary rap. © Aurélien Chapuis/Qobuz

Onderscheidingen Pitchfork: Best New Music
At just 29 minutes, the latest release from Denzel Curry feels more like a mixtape than an album. Less than a year after the tour de force of TA13000, an unclassifiable record that mixed black metal and electro, making him one of the most interesting players on the rap scene (and helped him climb into the Billboard 200), the Florida-born rapper based in Los Angeles returns with the more trappy ZUU. He mostly freestyles about homesickness, and invites onto the album locals Rick Ross (Beardz), Kiddo Marv (Wish), Ice Billion Berg, Sam Sneak (Shake 88) and PlayThatBoiZay (Pat). ZUU is an ode to his hometown Carol City, Florida, nicknamed “zoo” by Denzel. However, the album is a departure from a concept album, and takes measures to be spontaneous, without wasting time. With faithful producers FNZ and Charlie Heat at his side, he "shoots first, ask questions later.” "We didn’t go in with an opinion. If you go and formulate an opinion already, you ain’t gon’ get shit done,” explains Curry, who toured with Billie Eilish in 2019 and completed his Flying Lotus ‘Balloon’ trilogy (Black Balloons and The Blackest Balloons on TA13OO) with Black Balloons Reprise on Flamagra. At the age of 24, Denzel Curry has created a dazzling opus that still sets itself apart from the rest of the Florida scene. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz
