Explosive US rapper Denzel Curry is looking ahead to new music, it seems, with the 25-year-old sharing a list of potential collaborators on his social media account yesterday.

As triple j reports, Curry took to his Instagram yesterday afternoon to share a list of names categorised as “features to do”. In addition to notable hip-hop luminaries such as the Wu-Tang Clan and DMX, new school greats such as Isaiah Rashad, Rich Brian, Duckwrth, and Kenny Mason also made an appearance.

However, the Australian representation was also strong, with Curry also picking Sampa the Great as one of his future collaborators.

Of course, this wouldn’t be the first time that Curry and Sampa have crossed paths, with the former’s now-iconic Like a Version performance being preceded by a rendition of “BLACK BALLOONS | 13LACK 13ALLOONZ” which featured Sampa appearing on a guest verse.

While serving as a masterful pairing of the talents of two stunning artists, this performance was sadly overshadowed by Curry’s next track, with his rendition of Rage Against the Machine’s “Bulls on Parade” going viral soon after.

Although there’s been no timeframe given as to when Curry might indeed work with Sampa, he’s been hard at work on new music regardless. In addition to his Unlocked collaboration with Kenny Beats from back in February, Curry teamed up with Tommy Swisher recently to share “IM JUST SAYIN THO”.

Meanwhile, Sampa the Great released her debut studio album, The Return, last year, which went on to win the 2019 Australian Music Prize and made Sampa the first artist to win the award twice. More recently, a short film centred around the record’s creation premiered on YouTube back in April – the same time the acclaimed artist was set to be performing at the sadly-cancelled Coachella in California.
