Being a human in 2018 is a fucking weird experience and being an entertainer in this mess is even more bizarre. Culture is moving so fast that most of us don’t even have time to catch up and realize how insane and dangerous some things have become, but Denzel Curry just held a mirror up to his world in one of the most entertaining and thought-provoking videos to come out so far this year.
Curry hasn’t commented on the video yet himself, but a press release gives a little context: ‘”Clout Cobain” is an inspirational wake-up call to fellow artists and their fans that this cyclical modern day minstrel show does end lives prematurely and ultimately, its the artists who can break the influence of the industry’s ringmasters.”
Conceptualized by Curry and Mark Maturah, the Zev Deans-directed video shares the same aesthetics as the cover artwork to his forthcoming album, TA13OO, which will be released in three different acts on July 25, 26, and 27. The album will explore topics including “molestation, the presidential election, fame, hatred, paranoia, revenge, love, the current state of music, and personal tales of his own near death experiences.” Thursday night, Curry tweeted, “THIS ALBUM GOING CHANGE THE GAME,” and so far he has our attention. Somehow, he got up blogging at 2:00 a.m. for the first time in years. Thanks, Denzel.

ODIE – “No Signs” | 2DOPEBOYZ
Born in Toronto to Nigerian parents, ODIE is seeing a huge boost in his career thanks to the increasing popularity of his debut project Analogue. The project, released back in April stands as one of my favorites of the year, with “Bliss City,” “North Face” & “Story” standing as my favorites.
In an interview with Pigeons and Planes early this year ODIE alluded to some of the artists that influenced the music he creates now:
There’s this Fela Kuti song, “Shakara.” My dad used to play that a lot. And “Sweet Mother.” Every Mothers Day. Every Nigerian knows that song.
He’s not lying either, to receive your Nigerian certification card “Sweet Mother” is one of the tracks you just have to know.
In addition to these tracks he also pointed named Michael Jackson, Usher’s Confessions, Coldplay’s “Talk” & Dan Black & Kid Cudi’s “Symphonies!” as music that was influential to him in his youth.
Making his return seven months after the release of Analogue, ODIE dropped off “No Signs.” The song is set to appear on the LVRN-produced soundtrack of the FOX documentary They Fight which is produced by Common. The film portrays the real-life story of two young boxers, Ragahleak “Peanut” Bartee and Quincey Williams, in Washington D.C.’s Lyfe Style Boxing program.
While the film debuted on FOX last night (Nov. 11), the entire soundtrack has yet to be released, but it is set to feature original songs by 6LACK, Boogie, Octavian & more.
With all that being said, please welcome ODIE to the DopeHouse and hit play on “No Signs” and Analogue below.
