HIP HOP CLASSIC VIDEO: Kurious Jorge – “I’m Kurious” (1994) [TekniqueTheKingpin*com]

Jorge Alvarez, better known as Kurious, is an East Coast underground hip hop artist.

Kurious is of Puerto Rican and Cuban descent, and grew up in a Upper Westside neighborhood called Manhattan Valley In NYC . He debuted in 1991 on Powerule’s “Young Stars from Nowhere”. He then appeared on Pete Nice and DJ Richie Rich’s album Dust to Dust. The duo helped Kurious get a record deal with Columbia Records via Bobbito and Pete Nice’s Hoppoh imprint. In 1992, he released his first single, “Walk Like a Duck”. In 1994, Kurious released his critically acclaimed debut album A Constipated Monkey, which featured the hit singles “I’m Kurious” and “Uptown shit”. The album was a modest commercial success and is considered a classic of golden era hip-hop.

Shortly after the album’s release, Kurious seemingly disappeared from the music scene. In 1999, he reemerged on MF DOOM’s album Operation: Doomsday on the track “?” and contributed a track to a Monsta Island Czars Mixtape, under the alias Biollante. Amalgam Digital reissued A Constipated Monkey with bonus tracks in 2007.  In 2009 he released his second solo effort II, which was a critical success and featured the singles “Back From Up Unda”, “Back with VIC”, “Sittin’ in My Car” and “Drinks In The Air.”

He presently works with aspiring high school rappers and musicians in New York City, helping them to perfect their craft and realize their dreams.

I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Cheers
