Denzel Curry shares new single “Ricky”: Stream

on May 08, 2019, 11:21am

Last year, Denzel Curry dropped his three-part, 13-track album TA1300. Now, the Florida rapper has released his first single following up last July’s LP.

“Ricky” takes its name from Curry’s father, with Denzel using the track to pay tribute to his dad and explore the lessons his family passed down to him when he was younger. For example, in the chorus, he quotes his father, “Trust no man but your brothers/ And never leave your day one’s in the gutter…/ Treat young girls like your mother.” From his mother, he adds, “Trust no hoe, use a rubber.”

“Ricky” was released with an accompanying music video from director Twelve’len, who collaborated with Curry on “BLACK BALLOONS”. Like the track, the visual reflects the rapper’s childhood growing up in Miami. Curry’s late brother Treon was involved in Miami’s backyard brawling scene, which was the subject of the documentary Dawg Fight. Thus, the majority of the clip was filmed in the MMA and brawling legend Dada 5000’s backyard, a spot where Treon used to compete, and features both Dada and another fighter Chocolate (both of whom appear in the 2015 film).

In other news, Denzel will join Billie Eilish on North American tour starting on May 29th. After a handful of festival appearances over the summer, the rapper will meet up with the $uicideBoy$ for a tour leg that extends until late August. Find his full summer tour dates below.
