Denzel Curry is a 19-year-old rapper from Carol City, Florida. The same city that Rick Ross is from – He began writing poetry in the sixth grade, which led to his eventual rap career. He attended Miami’s Design & Architecture High School for 2 years before transferring to Miami Carol City High. Curry was discovered by SpaceGhostPurrp, his fan-base seemingly took off from there. His first of three mix-tapes released back in 2011, he released his debut studio album Nostalgia 64 in 2013.
He left Space-Ghost’s Raider Klan and became a solo artist just before releasing the album. Nostalgia 64 is his best body of work to me – my personal favorites by him are “N64” and “Captain Sea Fonk.” He attended the same school as Trayvon Martin and gave his form of condolences on “N64.” He’s worked with the likes of Robb Bank$ and Yung Simmie, one of his biggest inspirations is the late great 2Pac. His style to me ranges between conscious, bar for bar and punchline rap.
I’m looking forward to checking out his next project to see just how far he pushes the envelope. By steadily releasing songs, he’s managed to stay afloat – a new project is coming. In the meantime, checkout his latest video “Ice Age,” let us know what you think! Be sure to stream Nostalgia 64 below!
