Miami’s Denzel Curry dropped his 13 EP Saturday night. Curry teased the project for the better part of last month via Instagram, with the final bit of information about the EP coming June 12 in a post with what would eventually become the cover art for 13.
The five-track effort features appearances from Lil Ugly Mane and Ronny J. The project includes the previously released songs “Hate Government,” “Equalizer,” and “Zeltron 6 Billion” in their mastered formats.
Prior to the release of 13, Curry launched his "Life of 13" tour. The European series of shows was scheduled to open November 21 in France and close December 7 in Sweden.
According to XXL, the 13 EP briefly appeared as a retail offering on the Loma Vista bodega site alongside Imperial before being offered as a free download and stream via DatPiff.com. The Loma Vista link has since been deactivated.
The free, surprise release seems to be a common theme with Curry.
“I didn’t even know that song was going to pop like that,” Curry told Complex UK in 2015, when discussing the viral success of his “Ultimate” single. “We were just like, ‘Fuck it! We finna drop this shit for the fans tonight. I don’t give a damn.’ And when we dropped it, I didn’t let my manager know [laughs].”
You can stream the 13 EP below via DatPiff.
