Denzel Curry understands the importance of paying it forward. In the wake of detailing his ambitious 2019 goals, Curry has taken a moment to pay respects to those he feels deserve extra credit. There is no denying that an artist can play the role of tastemaker with a welcome sense of experience, that those adjacent from the game may lack. In that sense, a co-sign from Curry can go a long way, especially given his willingness to collaborate with equal-minded peers. Taking to Twitter, Zeltron outlined some of the game's truly "RAW."

JID IS RAW
SABA IS RAW
CITY MORGUE IS RAW
IDK IS RAW
ANONYMUZ IS RAW
CRAIG XEN IS RAW
JPEGMAFIA IS RAW
JOEY BADASS IS RAW
NYCK CAUTION IS RAW
JK THE REAPER IS RAW

For what it's worth, Denzel has worked with a variety of them already, and can vouch for their talents first hand. On TA13OO alone, Curry collaborated with JID and JPEGMAFIA. He also recently linked up with IDK for an excellent lyrical exchange called "Once Upon A Time." As for the others, we can only hope that Denzel continues to expand on his repertoire in the near future. The idea of some Zeltron x Pro Era is certainly exciting, and seeing him shout out up and comers like Anonymuz is a testament to his own "raw" status. Respect to Denzel for this one.
