Former Member of Raider Klan, Rapper/Producer managed by Mark Maturah for contact and bookings Mark@Lemediaco.com respect and stay bless.
The object of this commotion is Denzel Aquarius'Killa Curry, an 18 year old Floridian phenom in New York for the first time. He's enjoying himself, not taking the cash antics too seriously. He's earned it, after all–this has been Denzel's year. 2013 saw him explode out of the Miami scene with "Threatz," one of the most effective bangers rap's fringes have produced this decade. It's an elemental force. The night before I'd watched Curry perform at my suburban liberal arts school—he'd incited nuclear meltdown hype levels by the second verse.
Denzel came up over the last few years under the wing of SpaceGhostPurrp, drawing attention for his Raider Klan cuts and features for the enigmatic Lil Ugly Mane. This summer he amicably left the Klan, an understandable move from a purely creative angle. Denzel's vibrant, kinetic flow doesn't have all that much in common with Purrp's mystical, stylized take on Mystic Stylez. His first post-Klan mixtape, last month's Nostalgic 64, finds him using colors beyond gothic black on nimble tracks like "Parents" and "Widescreen." Where he'll go now is anyone's guess, but one thing's for sure: Denzel Curry is up next.
