Denzel Curry has been known to release some controversial shit in the past, but this time around with his latest music video for 'Clout Cobain' he's amped it up quite a bit.
Not only is it hinting at the fact that entertainers in the industry are basically puppets used to keep people distracted, but if you don't join in you won't get a paycheck. As much as there is truth in that even though it's awful and sick, the way he illustrates the issues with the industry in this video is painful because of how true it can be.
As the camera pans over the crowd of this seemingly underground concert setting, you see the clout tattoos drawn on the faces of those cheering Curry on until he decides he has no other option but to off himself. But the controversy doesn't end there, it almost seems hard to discern whether or not the crowd is cheering or disgusted with the act of his death in the music video.
The music video for 'Clout Cobain' has such a strong message it's hard to believe that more people aren't talking about it.
The album cover above goes along with the same exact style as the video, his album 'TA13OO' is coming out later this month in three different releases. He has said throughout the press surrounding his album that he plans to touch on many very political issues with his album.
Maybe this is what we needed out there, someone who is forward thinking and doesn't give a fuck about what people think.
While the beat and overall vibe of this track might seem like any other release from trending artists in the scene right now, there are so many underlying messages, you'll sit there and feel a somber wave of clarity wash over you.
