American rapper Denzel Curry has released his new single, “Walkin.”
Born and raised in Carol City, Florida, Curry started rapping while in sixth grade and began working on his first mixtape in 2011.
Influenced by underground Florida rapper SpaceGhostPurrp, the mixtape was later featured on Purrp’s social media, giving Curry local attention and resulting in Curry joining Purrp’s hip-hop collective, Raider Klan.
On January 5, 2022, the official trailer for Curry’s upcoming fifth studio album, titled Melt My Eyez See Your Future, was uploaded to his YouTube channel. It was revealed that the album would contain guest appearances from artists such as T-Pain, 6LACK, Slowthai, Rico Nasty, J.I.D, and Thundercat, among others.
Denzel Curry said the project would feature a new, more mature sound, different from his previous works: “Y’all are not going to hear the same type of Denzel anymore.” On January 28, a single titled “Walkin,” along with a western-inspired music video directed by Adrian Villagomez, was released.
Curry also said the upcoming album “is made up of everything that [he] couldn’t [release] on TA13OO or Imperial because [he] was going through depression anger issues,” and would take inspiration from traditional hip-hop, drum and bass, trap, poetry, and jazz. The same day, a North America and Europe tour promoting the album (with guest acts Kenny Mason, Mike Dimes, Redveil, and PlayThatBoiZay) was announced.
