Seemingly every artist in the game has co-opted Max B’s “wavy slang, but Denzel Curry and IDK aren’t every artist. That’s why they’re on “NO_WAVE,” as they stated on their recent track. Both IDK and Curry show why they’re names to watch on the rowdy RAZJAH-produced track. The thoughtful IDK, who released his IWASVERYBAD album in 2017 via Adult Swim, is dropping new music and letting his come-up be known with lines like, “I came from spammin’ on DMs” and pondering how “they used to make fun of him now they wan’ be him.”
Curry also takes no prisoners on his energetic guest verse. He takes the track’s sinister soundscape to a different level, rhyming that he’s a “whirlwind mixed with a whirlpool.” The track’s menacing keys feeds the track, while the triumphant synth that runs during the chorus feeds the track a progressive dynamic.
