I recently hit a curb and it damaged my wheel/rim.
Would it be safe to still drive for now?

It would be better to see a picture with the hubcap removed, but from what I can see I would only drive to a shop to get a new wheel. The sidewall is distorted and although it's still holding air the handling and performance of the tire will be affected. I would be concerned that the bead may separate at some point.
Also, there will most likely be other driveability problems. Steel wheels are relatively inexpensive. You should have it replaced.
