Russell Curry


Peace, My name is Russell Curry and I'm an MC originally from Southern California's Inland Empire.

I wrote my wedding vows to Hip Hop right after hearing Mos Def’s “Ms. Fatbooty” for the first time. I was only 12, but I knew I’d found the one. This love has taken me from recording and selling my mixtapes in high school, to my first live performances in college, to now opening up for some of Hip Hop’s greats at venues I only dreamt of, both locally and internationally

Through this journey, I now understand that my purpose is to lend inspiration wherever and whenever possible, and there's no better place to do this than on stage. Nothing compares to the feeling of performing for a crowd hanging onto every word and nodding to every beat. If don't put on a show worth at least double what you paid for, I haven’t done my job.

I don't just play songs and leave, I share an experience with you that you can't get anywhere else. My absolute fondest memories have been at incredible concerts, so it’s only right that I give that same gift back to you.

Past Performances: The Key Club, Yost Theater, Belasco, Bren Events Center, Ford Amphitheater, Gaza Commodore Hotel Ballroom.

Opened for: Trek Life, 2Mex of the Visionaries,Gym Class Heroes and M1 of dead prez.

Awards/Recognition: UC Irvine’s Antstock Top 6 Finalist/Winner: “Best Instrumentation,” DukeVisions.com Westcoast Cypher Top 5 Finalist, Kollaboration LA 2013 Finalist, RAWArds Los Angeles 2013 top 5 Nominee
