Denzel Curry has released a new politically charged song called “Live From the Abyss.”
On the track, which opens with audio of broadcast coverage from the Minneapolis protests after George Floyd’s death, the Florida rapper addresses police brutality and racism. “The police keep on killin’ us, hands up then they start to shoot / Bad enough I’m scared of them, they afraid of my n***as, too,” Curry spits.
“Voter suppression has been a ploy of amerikka for a long time. They were more bold in the past but they found new quiet ways to disenfranchise us,” Curry wrote on Instagram. “As they attempt to revert back to these tactics just know panic and terror didn’t work on us in 1939 and it won’t work on us today.”
“My brothers and sisters have overcome substantial amounts of injustice to achieve equal opportunity. Equality doesn’t come with a limit and no amount of your PRIDE can instill fear in my heart. This has been a Black Man Broadcast Live From The Abyss.”
For the month of October, all proceeds from “Live From the Abyss,” which was released exclusively on Bandcamp, will go towards supporting the Dream Defenders, a Florida-based police and prison abolition group.
“Live From the Abyss” is the latest offering from Curry, following his appearance on Guapdad 4000’s “Lil Scammer That Could” and “Pig Feet,” a collaboration with Terrace Martin, Kamasi Washington, G Perico and Daylyt.
