‘Young Insolent’ is the debut single from upcoming rapper/producer Denzel Himself.
Hailing from South London, home of King Krule and Hawk House, the 18-year-old officially introduces himself with a cut drained of melody, bullshit and musical weakness. A cutthroat and militant track that leaves no space for misunderstanding.
A response to the feeling that much of today’s music is based too much in jest, ‘Young Insolent’ is stripped down, black and white aesthetically and is just the first instalment of a cold-blooded approach that Denzel intends to deliver upon hip-hop and urban culture.
Having recently appeared alongside Piff Gang’s Milkaveli on JD. Reid’s ‘Nobunaga’, Denzel is also one half of Brxtherhood, a creative partnership with Gabriella Skies for whom he produced Burnouts – her debut EP which saw release in 2012.
Describing himself as the lovechild of J*DaVeY and Jim Jones, Denzel lives by the mantra: ‘Those who can do it, won’t. And those who would do it, can’t. Do it.’
