Growing up in London and witnessing the hard reality of knife-crime first hand has pushed Denzel into enlightened circles. He understood early on that the lack of opportunity plus mistrust of authority at school and home leads to wayward youth. When all we want to do is fulfil our image of a model person and the standard templates make us feel uncomfortable, we naturally fall into one of the deviations. Rather than adopting a cultural deviation only, many young people turn to behavioural ones too. Knives have consequences that transcend the trial and error principle. When someone is seriously hurt or killed then it's not enough to simply change our behaviour. Denzel has made a big effort to create a force for good among the people who risk losing their way. His track Jungle reaches out and offers his light to the gloom. The consequences of this track can only be positive.
It opens with melodic chimes in a looping phrase. Percussive beats start pounding through the tune to bring a skipping dancing tempo. Denzel starts singing, his rap/singing style leaps from each genre with catchy lines. Rhythm and rhyme combine in a swinging spin through beats, bass, and melodic bounce. Close to the heart, it has lines about life as a young adult making the most out of the opportunity and people around us, it's a drama and a journey.
