Do you remember the boy whose story goes that he started rapping in the 6th grade, was expelled from high school and accepted at another high school, where he was still working while still in class on his soon-to-be-released hit track Nostalgic 64? If you remember him, his name or rather his stage name is Denzel Curry.
Denzel can rightly be called one of the earliest developing rappers, who despite so many adversities, achieved fame as a small child. He was often excluded from lessons because his teachers described him as lame-ass and behavioral problems. This child with learning difficulties won several rap battles in which he participated and is now loved by all who have heard his music. His story is one of dedication and commitment to what he believes he can do well.
Here you will find everything you should know about Denzel Curry’s biography, his net worth, his height, his wiki, his parents, and his family, as well as some interesting facts about him that you didn’t know.
Wiki, Bio Parents, Family of Denzel Curry
February was a beautiful month; the day was February 16, two days after Valentine’s Day, while 1995 was the birth of the baby Denzel Rae Don Curry in Carol City Florida. His parents are of Bahamian and Indian descent, and so is he. Not much is known about who his parents are, which is quite common among artists who became famous in the new millennium. We do know, however, that after some time in Florida they moved to Miami, where he spent much of his childhood and attended school. He has a brother named Treon Johnson, who is not known to have a sister.
Denzel has several nicknames, including Aquarius’ Killa, Zeltron 6 Billion, Denny Cascade, Zeltron 6 Billy, and of course Raven Miyagi, after whom most of his young fans name him. Denzel started as an artist at an early age, writing poetry in primary school. By grade 6, his tongue was already smooth for rapping, as he won many rap battles in a local boys & girls club, which brought him fame among his peers. He later enrolled at Miami Design and Architecture High School for his high school education. After two years, he was expelled from school and later enrolled at Miami Carol City Senior High School, where his work on Nostalgic 64 began.
His music career historically began on September 24, 2011, when he released his first mixtape King Remembered Underground Tape 1991-1995. This earned him the status of a member of the SpaceGhostPurrp hip-hop group Raider Klan, as his entire project was released on the mixtape. In 2012, he released his second mixtape King of the Mischievous South Vol. 1 Underground Tape in 1996, which earned him more recognition from established artists such as American rapper Earl Sweatshirt and others. His third mixtape entitled Strictly for My R.V.I.D.X.R.S. was released in honor of his high school colleague Trayvon Martin.
At this time things were going very well for Denzel in his musical career because even the split of the Raider Klan couldn’t slow down the pace at which his musical career was growing. He went solo and released his first full-length album on September 3rd, 2013, which he worked on while still at school – Nostalgic 64, featuring artists such as Mike G, Nell, JK the Reaper, Lil Ugly Mane, etc. From Nostalgic 64 to today, Denzel has released hits like Imperial, his first double EP entitled 32 Zel/Planet Shrooms and so many demos for his much anticipated third album.
