If you’ve been reading iHipHop long enough then you’re certainly no stranger to my support for Miami rapper Denzel Curry. I’ve countlessly praised this 20-year-old ever since I was introduced to him via SpaceGhostPuurp’s Raider Klan group. When Curry dropped his debut full length album Nostalgic 64 back in 2013 my interest in his music grew tenfold and although he’s dropped some gems since then with tracks like “Feel Like That,” “Certified,” and “Ultimate” Curry has yet to put out a full-bodied work like Nostalgic 64. But that appears to be ending this coming May 26th when he’s set to drop his double EP entitled 32 Zel / Planet Shrooms. Needless to say I am hyped and after hearing “Envy Me,” the first official preview of the forthcoming double EP, I am definitely going to be incessantly staring at my calendar waiting for that date to finally arrive. Anyway, peep “Envy Me” after the jump!

“Each day serves as a reminder/that I’m years away from getting that crib down in Carolina/that I promised my mama,” D-Black spits on “Devil On Me,” a standout track on a standout project, Tunnel Vision, available for free download. Expect to hear that type of raw honesty and emotion in everything D-Black touches, from a song about a failed relationship to why he’s one of the illest on the come-up. The Bronx product has spent the better part of the last decade releasing consistently dope music, from a regular series Mr. October to a slew of underground releases. Fresh off a hiatus, D-Black is not only back, but back for vengeance on any beat unfortunate enough to be cued up in Pro Tools when he approaches the mic. D-Black speaks to ProfileWild about his absence, returning with two quality projects, Tunnel Vision and Heartbreak Hotel, rapping about relationships, his creative process, and much more. After the interview, D-Black survives a round in the random question generator and leaves the listener with a dope acapella.
