9Ta1300 – Denzel Curry (2018)
One of the newer albums on this list, the Florida-native does not disappoint. While this album is broken into 3 acts: Light, Grey, and Dark- The dark side truly revels in an evocative territory. Take for example, when Curry references Stephen King’s IT on the “Blackest Balloon” where he uses Pennywise’s balloons as a metaphor for the memory of his brother who died an untimely death, haunting him.
Stand-out tracks: Blackest Balloon, Vengeance
