Turn on a fan while playing Denzel Curry's sweltering 'Chief Forever'

Last week Florida rapper Denzel Curry released a double EP called 32 Zel / Planet Shrooms, and I've had trouble getting into the Planet Shrooms portion—whenever I get halfway through I end up going back to replay 32 Zel. Curry sounds like he's teeming with anger on the bulk of these tracks, and at times he speedily raps till it seems like he's gasping for air, as if he's pushing himself a little more to wrap up each line with a bang. On parts of "Chief Forever" the MC drops bars with a machine-gun pace and fury, but he also pauses to let the instrumental's paranoid screeches and squelches leak through; the beat's mean funk vibe sounds like it's melting in the Florida heat, especially as it slows down toward the end of the track. Take a listen to "Chief Forever" below, it's today's 12 O'Clock Track.
