Denzel Curry Unveils New Protest Song ‘Live from the Abyss’

    Denzel Curry has released a new protest song called ‘Live from the Abyss’. Check it out below.

    Though clocking in at just under two minutes, the track is rife with politically charged commentary, sampling a news broadcast on the June Minneapolis protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death. “I don’t fuck with my president/ Tried to block all Mexicans/ If he hear this message/ Please don’t send swat to my residence,” Curry raps.

    All proceeds from digital sales of the track until the end of October 2020 will be donated to Dream Defenders, a Florida-based youth organization fighting against police brutality, prisons, deportation, and war.

    Back in June, Curry joined Terrace Martin, Kamasi Washington, G Perico, and DaylytBack on the protest song ‘PIG FEET’. Earlier this year, he teamed up with Kenny Beats for the collaborative LP Unlocked. More recently, he featured on The Avalanches’ ‘Take Care In Your Dreaming’ alongside Tricky and Sampa The Great.
