TA13OO - Excellent, Based on 2 Critics

For all of the plaudits that followed Imperial-- deserved as they were-- it was easy to forgive and forget that, only 2 years ago, Denzel Curry's fame was almost entirely thanks to a meme. Not that "Ultimate" itself was hard to forget, what with its relentless and aggravated flow of boasts and nerdish allusions; rather that its real impact and applications were silly for the sake of it. Of course, Curry could flow unlike anyone else, and he could articulate and enunciate with such clarity that each word of every bar was felt rather than heard, but he couldn't escape just how ambiguously satirical his big, breakout hit sounded.
