The track also arrives with a jaw-dropping Adrian Villagomez-directed video featuring dancer/performer Sophia Gaspard. Shot on location in Peru, the cinematic effort sees Curry once again delving into a sci-fi/Western aesthetic, similar to the video for his recent single “Walkin.” In this case, “Zatoichi” is inspired by the 1960s Japanese samurai movie character of the same name, as well as the Kill Bill Vol. 2. The YouTube description notes it’s dedicated to Richard Lewis Spencer, Gregory Coleman, and the Winstons.
The Powers Pleasant-produced “Zatoichi” will appear on Curry’s forthcoming album Melt My Eyez See Your Future, which saw a trailer released in January:
“I like traditional hip-hop, I like drum and bass, I like trap, I like poetry, so a lot of that is going to be interwoven in this album including jazz and a lot of genres that I came up on as a kid and just being in my parents’ house,” Curry said when “Walkin” dropped. “This album is made up of everything that I couldn’t give you on TA13OO or Imperial because I was going through depression anger issues.”
