Denzel Curry and Kenny Beats share new music in “Unlocked” short film

The 24-minute clip comes on the heels of a fake internet conflict.

February 06, 2020

Earlier today, Denzel Curry alarmed the internet by seemingly threatening Kenny Beats on Twitter and Instagram. That "beef" is promo for "Unlocked," a new animated short starring the rapper and the producer and featuring excerpts of new songs from the pair. The 24-minute short starts with Curry and Beats arguing over a leaked album — the only solution, it seems, is to transport themselves into the computer to retrieve their stolen songs. It's not a straightforward journey — each world they travel to has a different animation style and obstacles leading to the files Denzel and Kenny must recover — but it's amusing and more importantly, full of great new music. Watch above, and revisit our interviews with Denzel Curry and Kenny Beats here and here.
