Denzel Curry

Last year, for example, Jasiah released the two-minute anthem “Break Shit,” and it smacks hard. Jasiah recently released his War EP, and today, he’s followed that one up with a new single called “Art Of War.” On the song, he’s teamed up with Denzel Curry and Rico Nasty, possibly the two greatest punk-adjacent screamers in the entire rap game.

Tobe Nwigwe has great posture. Nwigwe is a big man and an imposing one — 6’2″, 240, used to play linebacker at the University Of North Texas. He might have made the NFL if not for a career-ending injury. In his videos, you can see just how big Nwigwe is; he never stoops or slouches or shrinks. Instead, he holds himself with a stillness that comes off elegant, almost delicate. When he’s rapping, Nwigwe usually stares straight into the camera’s eye — barely moving his body, rarely changing his expression. When he dances — something he does pretty often — he moves with a lithe grace. Most of the time, everyone onscreen moves just like him.
