Denzel Curry has unveiled the third and final Act in his three-part album “TA13OO” with the “Dark” act arriving today. We were able to sit down with him for an in-depth interview to discuss each Act of the album, as well as pick out certain songs and lyrics to get even more insight as to what’s going on in the strange, intriguing and intelligent mind of Denzel. We’re including small snippets that highlight each section of the album below.
“The first part, it was basically how I treated everything, you know with money coming in, I got all these females, with everything in life going smoothly, but it’s only brief at that moment — oh yeah, this money and everything is supposed to make you happy but it’s not. I didn’t grow up materialistic you know, that’s what really spurred the Light part, because when I was very materialistic, that’s what was driving me. That’s when it goes into the Gray part – the Gray part shows the after affects of it, of just not caring. And that’s how I was before, just not caring.”
“Gray is just like the reality of things. That’s why it’s longer than the Black part and the Light part, it has five track instead of four, because the Gray part, it just shows like..Okay, you hear “Super Saiyan Superman” and I’m flexing, I’m flexing hard, after coming from “Sumo,” I’m flexing and shit, and then you got “Switch It Up” which, in an instant, just switches up the whole mood of everything, and shows you how your true friends will literally pull a gun out on a you, to show you like, n*gga, I don’t give a fuck who you is, I knew you since you was this tall, you ain’t gunna do that, you ain’t gunna try me in no way, I ain’t yo little buddies or whatever. And then when you hear the second verse on “Switch It Up,” the person or character realizes, when he’s not high or not sedated, he realizes what’s really going on around him. So it’s like his wake up call, “Switch It Up” is like a wake up call of what’s going around him. Or around me, per say, cause that was a true story.”
“You gotta realize, when you in this game, do you at all times. If somebody try to tell you how to do you, it’s not gunna look good to somebody else. The only thing you could do, is do you. If they try to tell you how to do you, “do it like this, do it like that,” then you not in control of yourself, and you won’t be happy. If I’m in control of myself at all times, and I can say how I feel or whatever, and you don’t like it — fuck you, suck my dick, I don’t give a fuck, leave me alone — that’s how I felt writing that part [the Dark part] of the album.”
