The Florida rapper previously commented on the two artists’ recent work, tweeting, “Donda and CLB could’ve been better.”
In a new interview with Spin, Denzel Curry has elaborated on his criticism of Drake and Ye. Explaining the tweets he wrote in May about Drake’s Certified Lover Boy, Curry said, “I was looking forward to Drake’s album, ’cause Drake always got something. But then, when you get them albums, you’re like, ‘What the fuck are you doing?'” In relation to Ye’s Donda, he added, “We don’t even really need to talk about Kanye West, it’s Kanye West.”
“For them to go out, and go against each other and make that subpar work with the resources they have. These are the same producers it’s hard for me to reach out to because they don’t see the return,” Curry continued. “You’ve got all these resources, and y’all made subpar albums. I had limited resources, and I made a great one. That shouldn’t happen.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Curry opens up about experiencing sexual abuse as a child and processing this through therapy. Speaking on this, he referenced a lyric from Kendrick Lamar’s Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers: “I didn’t want that to define me. It’s like Kendrick Lamar said, there are people hiding the hurt through their chains and tattoos. Just to show you that they weren’t this person.”
In the feature, Curry also spoke about his latest record Melt My Eyez, which he released back in March this year. Last month, Drake dropped his surprise new album Honestly, Nevermind on 17 June.
