DENZEL CURRY SHARES NEW SINGLE “BLACK FLAG FREESTYLE” 

FEATURING THAT MEXICAN OT
DEBUTED EARLIER THIS WEEK WITH FROM THE BLOCK PERFORMANCE

KING OF THE MISCHIEVOUS SOUTH VOL. 2 DUE DUE JULY 19TH VIA LOMA VISTA RECORDINGS

PROJECT FEATURES A$AP ROCKY, A$AP FERG, JUICY J, PROJECT PAT, 2 CHAINZ, TY DOLLA $IGN, SKI MASK THE SLUMP GOD, MAXO KREAM, KENNY MASON AND MORE

After announcing the details of his forthcoming project King Of The Mischievous South Vol. 2 and releasing the first single “HOT ONE” earlier this month, Denzel Curry returns with “BLACK FLAG FREESTYLE” which features rising Texas star That Mexican OT. The song gets its title from its origin as Denzel recorded his freestyle late one night while partying with friends in an Australian studio and wrapped a black bandana over the mic while recording. The Houston-inspired instrumental produced by 187 Ricky & Payday feels like a perfect fit for Bay City native That Mexican OT. A day before the song was officially released Curry and OT debuted it with a From The Block performance live from Houston at the legendary Screwed Up Records & Tapes store founded by the late DJ Screw. Continuing his global takeover, “BLACK FLAG FREESTYLE” premiered on the UK’s Radio 1 New Music Show as Jack Saunders’ Hottest Record alongside an interview with Denzel in the studio.

King Of The Mischievous South Vol. 2 finds Curry presenting a sequel to the project – and revisiting the sound – that helped launch his career. While the first installment of King Of The Mischievous South was performed from the perspective of his Raven Miyagi persona, a name bestowed upon him by Raider Klan founder SpaceGhostPurrp, Volume 2 finds Curry operating under his Big Ultra persona — an elevated version of Raven Miyagi that is braggadocious and revels in the success that Curry has seen over the last decade of his career. 

Denzel has been rapidly warming up his fanbase for King Of The Mischievous South Vol. 2. Recently, while in New York City, he stopped by The Lot Radio and teased new material on his Mischievous Radio show with DJ Dylan Ali. Denzel revealed the project’s features to fans directly on Instagram and put the original King Of The Mischievous South Vol. 1 on SoundCloud to prepare for the upcoming project’s release.

Creating King Of The Mischievous South Vol. 2 has been a goal of Curry’s for some time, though his earliest attempts to do so ultimately morphed into other projects, namely his 2016 album Imperial and 2020’s 13LOOD 1N + 13LOOD OUT. It wasn’t until he stopped overtly attempting to create Volume 2 that its songs started to emerge naturally.

Given the project’s sound, which pays homage to the great musical heritages of the South — from Memphis to Houston and Curry’s own South Florida — its features include the region’s greats, both old and new, as well as others whose style is indebted to the South’s musical legacy. Fellow former Raider Klan member Key Nyata, Memphis stalwarts Juicy J and Project Pat, Texas’ Maxo Kream, That Mexican OT and Mike Dimes, North Carolina’s TiaCorine, Atlanta’s 2 Chainz and Kenny Mason and South Florida’s Ski Mask The Slump God and PlayThatBoiZay, as well as A$AP Ferg and A$AP Rocky all make appearances across King Of The Mischievous South Vol. 2.

With all of the otherworldly adventures Denzel has taken listeners on throughout his last few conceptually-driven albums, this project serves as a showcase for the fun, spontaneity, and technical mastery that has made him one of rap’s most in-demand talents of the last decade.

In conjunction with the project’s announcement, Curry shared the FNZ and SkipOnDaBeat-produced single “HOT ONE” featuring TiaCorine and A$AP Ferg. Curry debuted the new song during his “Mischievous Cypher” with On The Radar, a three-beat medley group performance featuring Ferg, Tia, Key Nyata, and PlayThatBoiZay.

Later this year, Denzel will hit the road on the Grey Day tour along with some select festival dates – see the full list of upcoming shows below. Check out the full details of the project and listen to “HOT ONE” above now. Stay tuned for more Denzel Curry and King Of The Mischievous South Vol. 2 news soon.
