Denzel Curry has always been on one of the more creative rappers from this current class of artists. In this very dark, symbolic video, Curry paints himself as a clown in the circus comparing it this generation of social media clout chasing rappers, public figures, and fans. The crowd (portraying online fans) laugh and cheer on the dancing, rapping, Curry as he is unaware they are laughing at him.
Curry adds little nuances of being controlled, teens being subconsciously influenced to drug usage, and many others. In the end, Denzel is finally realizing after his antics he is the joke and enters a very scary, dark state where he resembles, Pennywise from Stephen Kings “IT.” He then points a gun at himself and commits a very public suicide with only fans to continue cheering with a red balloon popping making a gunshot.
Denzel Curry also announced his new album “Taboo” (Ta13oo) will be dropping on July 27th. And he will be hitting the road in North America and Europe.
