Denzel Curry vs. Flatbush Zombies: Inside The Wrestling-Themed Concert | CenterStage

August 29, 2019

Denzel: Florida scene in music is just raw. Whatever you’re gonna get out of that is
raw. Look at this. You see where we at right now? I’m in a boxing ring right now bruh. Denzel: Chop a nigga face off. Face off. Yo. Shoes. Lace off. I need some lysol. I just took a doo doo. Denzel: I always messed with Flatbush Zombies,
especially being on the album. Us hanging out in New York together and them
coming down here. Anywhere we see each other, we always like…
kick it. Denzel: How I came up with this idea? Literally came to me like, “Yo Denzel.” “We’re willing to do whatever you want to
do.” I was always interested in sound clashes. I like seeing one side go against another
side and just… You know? Seeing how that works out and the energy. The acting on all the Marvel series is terrible. Not Daredevil. Not Daredevil. So I was like… Wait a minute? Why don’t I make a show where it’s Zeltron
go against Flatbush Zombies? So I called Meech, presented the idea, and
Meech was like, “Let’s go.” And I was like, “Let’s go.” Denzel: Nobody. We’re gonna fucking be the first ones to
do this shit. And then we’re gonna continue with it so
nobody steals it. Erick The Architect: I think that this show… Not only is it with someone that we actually
make music with and are friends with. It’s very few times you can have something
else related to music that’s so synonymous like wrestling. A lot of people watch wrestling or they listen
to hip hop but I feel like we’re actually fans of the culture of wrestling. We grew up watching that shit. This is like literally a dream come true. Announcer: And that’s time. Make some noise, Miami! Denzel’s Dad: You alright? Everything good? You ready? Denzel Yeah I’m ready to kill this thing,
man. Denzel: Look at this. Who does this? Not no one. This is what separates this from
any other Miami show that I ever did. Zombie Juice: I mean wrestling and hip hop? Doesn’t get any better than that, right? Denzel: What you doing in here? You supposed to be on my side. Oh this what you do? Yo you know what they say. You gotta get close with your enemies. I’m just peeping the vibe. Peeping the enemies. I’m peeping my competition. Announcer: Miami, how y’all doing? Make some noise. We are live. This is for our main event of the evening. Zeltron vs. Zombies. Denzel: What the fuck is up, Miami? Announcer: Remember guys. You guys know the rules. Denzel: We only doing this for fun. It just brings a form of unity to the game. Announcer: Zombies it’s on you for round
one. Denzel: Put your U’s in the air. Put your U’s in the air. Denzel: Zeltron 6 billion is a combination
of all my personalities mixed together. I just needed to find a way to compile all
these personalities to one being… And the being is me. It’s Denzel. Denzel: I have a lot of energy. A lot of it. I gotta exude all that energy into something
and performing was actually that thing. Meech: If you know the words to this song,
I’ma need you to scream that shit with us. Meech: I’ve seen a lot of peoples’ shows. Sometimes they don’t talk to the crowds
at all. I think that’s a big thing with our kinds
of shows. A lot of crowd participation and a lot of
energy. Denzel: Basically, what the new south Florida
rappers is bringing to the table is this. They’re all versatile. The personalities themselves are just intriguing
and very raunchy, very in your face. They really don’t give a F. Meech: I don’t really know what sounds like
what anymore besides somebody’s accent. Everybody raps on the same sounding beats. There’s no more New York sound. There’s no more nothing. We all talk about the same shit. It’s just one guy sounds more southern. The other guy sounds like he’s from New
York. The other guy sounds like he’s from California. Denzel: Traitor. How you gonna be on their team and you from
Florida? Meech: Wait hold on. Mind your fucking business, alright? Denzel: I mean we was already homies but nobody
knows that. We wanna get everybody else encouraged to
actually embrace the fact that you’re competing. Announcer: Miami, are you ready? Here is the final round. Make some noise for the Flatbush Zombies. Meech: Drop that shit please. Denzel: It was three of y’all versus me
the whole show. Meech: That’s a lie. All these people are you. Denzel: It was three of y’all versus one
Zeltron the whole show. But guess what? We gonna do it like this. Denzel: Everybody does senseless beef and
it’s stupid to me. It’s all dumb. Instead of doing something where egos clash,
we bring both egos together to make it seem like we’re clashing, but it’s actually
bringing us together and unifying us as brothers so that way we can do it for whoever. Whoever wants to come in. Announcer: It is a dead tie, ladies and gentlemen. Make some noise for the Flatbush Zombies and
Denzel Zeltron Curry. Denzel: Drake could come in here and be like,
“Alright, I wanna battle y’all.” Cool. Let’s get it. Boom. Bow. Beep. Let’s set it up. Oh Travis Scott? You wanna come in here, too? Boom. Bow. Beep. Let’s set it up. I don’t care who it is. It could be Sheck Wes. I don’t care. I just wanna bring unity to the whole game. And this is a way to do it.
