Published Jun 26, 2017After reworking some songs with BADBADNOTGOOD and Charlotte Day Wilson earlier this year, Denzel Curry has delivered some new material with the 13 EP.
Arriving today through Loma Vista, the EP runs five tracks in length and features Curry lining up alongside Lil Ugly Mane and Ronny J. Curry explained the meaning behind the numerical title in a statement:
The ideology behind 13 the number is actually the representation of B and B is the letter beginning of the word Black(13LACK). 13 is seen as an unfortunate and unlucky number due to superstition that's plagued society for generations. I'm considered misfortune due to the fact that I'm not only a black person but I've always felt that my heart and soul was black due to certain circumstances in life that I have yet to get over and you don't have to be African American to feel that way. 13 is all around us, for example 13 is a difficult age for most because it's our path to adult hood. Jesus and 12 disciples make 13 according to big rube and lastly the 13th floor was always seen as something to be afraid of world wide. 13 is the part of an unfortunate distorted life.
Curry delivered his Imperial LP last year, and is expected to make his full-length Loma Vista debut with Taboo later this year. Take in the entirety of 13 in the players below, and download the project through DatPiff here.
