    I’m not a musician or a producer but Denzel Curry seems like the best person to work with. Just so efficient but sincere. Watching him and Kenny was like watching old videos of Jay Z making music.

    After listening to the project for the tenth time and as a musician myself, I want to say that those two are a raw powerhouse of fire. I'm talking fucking Naruto/Sasuke, Luffy/Zorro or Mugen/Jin shonen anime shit tier powerhouse but for hip-hop. Can't wait for episode two ngl.
