    Ultimately, easily one of the most simultaneously hardest and atmospheric hip-hop albums of the year.

    Curry has constructed a project that plays to the sonic structures of the era without sacrificing meaningful content in doing so. TA13OO is the culmination of his promise and talent, resulting in Curry’s magnum opus.

    Realistically, Ta13oo is extremely satisfying from a consumption standpoint. It’s everything I’d want from a rap album this year.

    His new LP is a sonic assault; holding tight to punk ruthlessness and discipline, drenched in Dirty South origins. [Oct 2018, p.68]

    Incorporating varied delivery and production, TA13OO taps into his established style, which combines aggressive trap with rapid-fire bars ("Sumo," "Super Saiyan Superman"), while also adding smoothed-out hip-hop atmosphere and patient vocal restraint ("Sirens," "Cash Maniac"), which was only hinted at on Imperial's throwback gem "Zenith." TA13OO is split into three sections--Light, Gray, and Dark--and delves into introspective self-examination and unflinching social commentary that tackles politics, sexual abuse, and mental health.

    It’s when he sticks to the highly personal that Curry’s music is devoid of all cliché--the power of his performance, the veracity of his pen, and the color of his wordplay make him an expert at voicing the tribulations of this doomed condition we call being young.

    This album was insanely diverse, yet it still flowed together flawlessly. It may be hard to think that Cash Maniac and Sumo are connectedThis album was insanely diverse, yet it still flowed together flawlessly. It may be hard to think that Cash Maniac and Sumo are connected since the songs sound so different, but they go perfectly together. Cash Maniac is a form of Denzel that wanted the money and fame. Sumo comes right after because it is a form of Denzel that has the money now. The sheer aggression on Percs and BMT is unrivaled. The ability to create songs that both sound good and have lyrical content is astounding. The dark story telling on Switch it Up is also nothing to sleep on. It’s the perfect album and easily should’ve been album of the year. Expand

    It is a major improvement in every aspect from production, to songwriting and everything in between compared to Imperial. Curry shows far moreIt is a major improvement in every aspect from production, to songwriting and everything in between compared to Imperial. Curry shows far more versatility as well in the lighter cuts such as Black Balloons and Cash Maniac, while also maintaining the dark and grimy performances he is known for on tracks like Vengeance and Black Metal Terrorist. He also shows his introspective side with political commentary on Sirens and his critique of society's newfound obsession with "clout chasing" in this social media age on Clout Cobain. There isn't a single track here that I disliked, which is why I gave it a 10, and it is a strong contender for Hip Hop album of the year alongside Kids See Ghosts by Kanye West and Kid Cudi and the newly released Brockhampton album, Iridescence.

    What an album! Tons of bangers, great features and killer beats.
    Denzel delivers consistently great flows and clever lyrics on every song.

    What an album! Tons of bangers, great features and killer beats.
    Denzel delivers consistently great flows and clever lyrics on every song.
    I also loved J.I.D, Zillakami and Jpegmafia on this album.
    I don't really like the hook on Blackest Balloon and on Cash Maniac. I think they make these songs very unenjoyable even though the verses and beats on these tracks are still good.
    My favourite tracks are probably: Vengeance, Black Metal Terrorist, Sirens, Clout Cobain and Switch it up.
    My vengeance T-shirt is being shipped as we speak.
