One of the most prolific rappers of the new generation has announced his biggest Manchester shows to date.
Florida rapper Denzel Curry has been on a steady incline for the past eight years after his early affiliations to hip-hop collective Raider Klan (Spaceghostpurrp, A$AP Rocky) gained him notoriety within the underground rap scene.

Curry’s high energy vocals and intense delivery are mixed with lush, dark production. His unique style has created a cult following across the world, with dedicated fans stretching far and wide, eager to be immersed in his elusive world.
Curry has been consistently releasing music since 2011, and after Curry’s sleeper hit, ‘Ultimate’, went viral, the single drew him a new legion of fans and has since been certified gold in the U.S.
An EP Curry released before 2016’s ‘Imperial’ album featured Rick Ross, Joey Badass and Steve Lacy, while Curry has gone on to work with JME, AJ Tracey, A$AP Ferg.
His last album, ‘TA13OO’ (pronounced ‘Taboo’), was critically acclaimed by media and fans alike and featured guest appearances from Billie Eilish, Goldlink and J.I.D.
The album was Curry’s first to reach the Billboard 200 and charted in the UK, Australia and Canada. Curry capped off the album with a winter tour that featured a stop at Manchester’s Rebellion in December 2018.
Denzel’s newest album ‘Zuu’, was released on May 31. Catch Denzel at Manchester Academy 2 on 1st and 6th December. Tickets are on sale now.
