New York Rapper Curly J Drops “KINGDOM” EP, Plus “No Hoodie” Video

New York rapper Curly J drops his eagerly awaited debut EP titled KINGDOM on Warner Records. He also shares a new video for “No Hoodie” which finds him navigating through an empty New York Subway during the pandemic. The self-proclaimed “King of Melodies” is one of Long Island, New York’s most exciting artists. Potent songwriting, effortless swagger and dizzying flows are all beaming from the body of work, however, according to Curly the journey leading up to the final product was predicated on a stubborn effort to become as well-rounded as any rapper doing it. The self-proclaimed “King of Melodies” is dexterous as both a vibe-setting crooner and double-time rap assassin whether over moody guitar-streaked bangers or
bright trap. He says of KINGDOM and his approach to music:


“I speak about things that are going on in my life and I think that’s why so many people relate to me. I just want to be as versatile as possible and bring my best self to everything I do. As long as I’m the best version of myself, there’s nothing I can’t do.”

He’s an open book tapping into the childhood poverty that’s increasingly in his rear view.  With the new 5 song EP, Curly J is staking his claim as rap’s new pop-rap maestro, bending beats to his will and switching flows with precision on a dime. The project follows the release of his recent track “Never Stop” released in January of 2021. Previously Curly dropped “Bag Different 3.0” and “Big Dawgs.” Now with KINGDOM on the horizon, he’s ready to earn the crown.
