Denzel Curry has earned a break. The self-proclaimed “best rapper alive” dropped his album Melt My Eyez, See Your Future in March, adopted by an extended edition in September. He supported the discharge with a headlining US tour and an NPR Tiny Desk Concert performance. Moreover, he opened for a portion of Child Cudi’s To The Moon World Tour.
As a substitute of utilizing January to catch his breath, Curry featured on Armani White’s “Goated” single. He’s maintaining his foot on the fuel at the moment, January 25, by releasing “Tally” alongside Midwxst. Curry additionally introduced two Might reveals at New York Metropolis’s Blue Be aware Jazz Membership.
Fittingly, the start of the video for “Tally” has a really jazzy really feel. Curry is from Florida, and Midwxst has roots in Indiana, however we discover them in old-timey California .
“It was 1944 in Bel-Air, California. The bars closed 5 hours in the past, however the scent of whiskey was nonetheless within the air,” a narrator says whereas black-and-white photographs of Bel-Air flick throughout the display. “Midwxst, Denzel Curry, and the remainder of the crew personal the city with none opposition or battle. Little did they know that hazard was carrying a brand new costume and was awaiting their arrival.”
A cloaked Midwxst makes his method up an elaborate staircase holding a gun. He encounters a beautiful lady in a room and instantly drops his gun to speak together with her. She seems to efficiently be seducing him, however he by no means loses the upperhand.
“I met this woman down in Tally,” he raps within the refrain. “She stated she flew in from Cali ;Not LA, although, she stay within the Valley /Acquired a twin and I feel her identify Sally / Not my sort, so I curved her actual proudly.”
Curry is equally skeptical, lighting her cigarette at a dinner desk. She watches him as he delivers a tough verse that nimbly manages to reference individuals and issues that usually wouldn’t determine to go collectively, like Kobe Bryant, Jeffrey Dahmer, Speaker Knockerz, The Infamous BIG, and Davy Jones’ locker.
