slowthai and Denzel Curry seemed like an inevitable collaboration. Both of the rappers have such a knack for spewing out aggression that tossing them in a studio together would surely result in them concocting a terrifying and exhilarating product. "Psycho", their first collaboration, is as twisted as you'd expect and hope. The track was first previewed at a slowthai show in Manchester back in March and the Internet has been itching for it ever since.
The Kwes Darko-produced song opens with eerie, screechy strings that are instantly reminiscent of a horror film. Denzel comes in with fuzzed-out vocals, shouting and pronouncing bars in his usual grandiose manner. slowthai cuts off Denzel abruptly and starts dizzily spitting about his superiority. His raps become increasingly frantic and distorted as the verse goes in. The song fittingly ends with a call to riot. Undeniably, "Psycho" is one for the moshpit.
Denzel announced on Instagram that a music video for the track will be released this FRIDAY, THE THIRTEENTH.
High off the chemicals, turn you vegetable, why are you cynical?
You are minuscule, drain you of minerals, nothin' but residue
So far ahead of you, I'm terrestrial
Fuck a telephone, need a telescope
