Denzel Curry Shares Knotty Head Remix Feat. AJ Tracey and Rick Ross

Ahead of the re-release of latest album, Imperial — complete with two brand new tracks — Carol City’s Denzel Curry has shared visuals for a new remix of album, Knotty Head.

Imperial sees Denzel, who graced XXL’s influential Freshman cover earlier this year, breakout as a star, beating the odds and his depression to make his own, deeply idiosyncratic brand of punk-rap music. An ode to his trademark, knotted up dreadlocks, Knotty Head itself is an album calling card and in AJ Tracey — recently announced as earning a place on the coveted BBC Sound Of 2017 list — and long time co-signer Rick Ross, Curry has enlisted two of the best lyricists from either side of the pond. 

Shot on location outside West London’s Trellick Tower, a cult, government-listed building and a standout example of 1970’s brutalist, inner-city architecture, the video features Denzel and AJ exchanging verses in a basketball court, interspersed by footage of Denzel’s recent headline UK show at London’s Jazz Cafe, with the tower looming over them in the background.
