(GEMS RADIO) – Denzel Curry has declared himself the best rapper alive as IDK challenges him on Twitter. In an interview with XXL on Monday that examined his last album, “Melt My eyes see your future,” the rapper asserted that he is about to shake the whole game up on his next project.
“Just look out for me,” said Curry. “Look out for any of the next projects that’s ’bout to come out. I’m ’bout to shake the whole game up. I don’t care what anybody gotta say, bro. I’m the best rapper alive. Point blank, period.”
Upon getting wind of Curry’s sentiments, IDK, who has worked with Denzel Curry in ‘Dog Food,’ differed with Curry’s sentiment and challenged him on Twitter.
“Battle me @denzelcurry,” wrote IDK.
Denzel Happy To Be Doing Something He Loves
Curry also spoke of his 10-year career as a rapper rather modestly. He affirmed that he was only happy that he was doing something he loved every day.
“I really don’t feel like a veteran even though I been doing this for over 10 years,” he said. “I just thought of it as me doing. Ten years’ worth of work so I could get somewhat noticed. And I still got work to do. Ultimately, I just feel good about it. That I’m able to do something I love every day.”
Curry’s latest album, which he dropped on March 25th, debuted at #51 on Billboard 200. The album features appearances from T-Pain, JID, 6LACK, Rico Nasty, and Slowthai, among others
Kanye West Inspiration
Curry has in the past claimed that Kanye West’s The Roots inspired his album
“I wanted something that was gonna sound big,” he said in a separate interview with Pitchfork. “I wanted some of these songs to sound like they belonged in stadiums. ‘Sanjuro,’ ‘X-Wing,’ ‘The Last’ and ‘Ain’t No Way’ are definitely my Graduation moments. If you listen to that album, it has a variety of beats, too. I just wanted something that sounded as colorful.”
