Biography
Curse has had a long musical past. In his youth, he played songs like “Zwei Mal In Den Kopf” in his former band Phat Kicks. In the 90ies, his band had gigs in the area of Stadthagen.

On his first album Feuerwasser (released in 2000), his lyrics have already been self-reflected and they have handled with things that had happened in his life, but also contained classical hip hop tracks such as representing- and battle-tracks. He especially raps about abortive relationships and admits mistakes to himself. For that reason, he is a kind of an outsider in the hip hop scene. The beats on Feuerwasser and many other releases are often produced by Sascha Bühren aka Busy.

In 2001, his next album Von Innen Nach Außen (which means something like “inside outwards”) was released. On this album, Curse continued his style and the lead single “Lass uns doch Freunde sein” was distinguishing from current rap clichés and thus gaining attention even outside the hip hop scene.
