“Sumo” is vintage Curry, the blown out 808s and menacing synths provide a perfect canvas for him to reel off a procession of impressive flows, from screaming staccato to speedy wordplay, all with his singular intensity. Curry was part of ASAP Ferg’s recently postponed Mad Man tour, and after seeing insane footage of the shows it’s a shame he won’t be able to bust out “Sumo” while it’s still brand new.
The song’s thumping instrumental was provided by Charlie Heat and Curry told Lowe that he was in the studio with Heat, Flatbush Zombies and Kirk Knight when he heard the beat and the hook came to mind. Listen and get the free .mp3 download below.
This week’s download comes from the rapper, Denzel Curry, and his forthcoming debut album titled “Taboo.” You have seven days to download the track, “Sumo.”
