CURVPro / Press

“ DANETWORC: Any last words? CURV: “The REALEST of the Real, STAND Few and Far Between“, and “Nuthin comez to a sleeper, but a muthafucking DREAM.” “I’m so cereal bout my milk cuzzin!!”, you can quote me … LOL Ehy! We got them bluenose pitbulls too … pedigree, with the papers, HOLLA ! ”

“The most remarkable place that pass led him might be a burgeoning female rap scene, anchored by fire-spitting ladies like Kels La Chelle and Curv.”

“It’s been a lot of hard work but it’s all coming together. They are finishing the film in fall of ‘09.

“Following a few leads, Vertigo landed its first -- and, to date, only -- gig, opening for Digital Underground, 2 Live Crew and Rick James in Las Vegas. Savage struck up a friendship with the most reputable artist on that bill, DU mastermind Shock G (a.k.a. Humpty), who had kick-started 2Pac's career and contributed impossibly funky beats to Raw Fusion's underground classic Live From the Styleetron.”

“Bend it over is about as explicit as this outfit gets. Curv censors herself on a few occasions, shushing shit into shhh, but there are no beeps on the disc. During his love song, Loonz makes only gentle, vanilla sexual allusions. Vertigo might never get play on The Rock, but it's friendly to any station catering to urban sounds.”

“Savage began soliciting demos, hoping to start an entertainment production company that focused on rap acts. He discovered Ground Zero, a man-mountain with a knack for nimble rhymes; Mr. Loonz, a smooth-flowing Hispanic MC; and Curv, a female freestyler with a brash, confident delivery. Speedy, who had volunteered to assist the group as a financial manager, became an official member after his gravelly voice proved a perfect fit for one of the group's tracks. This hip-hop collective dubbed itself Vertigo and, hooking up with Surgeon General, a prolific producer (Mac Lethal, Veteran Click) whose sample-free beats are one of the leading causes of area dance-frenzy outbreaks, quickly composed a club-ready demo.”

“Vertigo draws from a cross-section of the Kansas City talent base, giving the group a unique sound that Savage describes as "hardcore hip-hop meets salsa." Another asset to Vertigo's sound is the lyrical flow of Curv, whose rhymes pack the tracks with punch while making them sparkle at the same time. Curv, who like S.G. and Ground Zero has her own production company, says she encourages female vocalists to be involved with the business and production of music as well as the writing.”

“After touring with TechN9ne earlier this year and sharing the stage the stage with the likes of Rick James, Digital Underground and 2 Live Crew on a 16-city west coast tour, Vertigo has gained enough momentum to help them "roll until the wheels fall off”

“It's a sunny Sunday afternoon on the patio of McCoy's in Westport, and it's also the first time the entire crew of Vertigo has been together in weeks. Rapper Ground Zero has just returned from touring with TechN9ne, and the Kansas City-based hip-hop group is gearing up for a main-stage performance at Spiritfest. Introductions are made and I mention dropping their new single, "KCMO" at a recent house party for a group of my brother's friends.”

“Tech will always be from KC, but he and his crew have moved their ops to LA, a logical step needed to take his music to the next level. Fans used to a dozen or more shows a year now will have to make due with one or two hometown appearances like this one.His second 'Absolute Power' single -- "Imma Tell" -- recently hit BET and M2. Given Tech's talent and work ethic, it may not be long before he's in rap's uppermost echelon. When Lawrence/KC hip-hop gets a spot on the national map, Tech N9ne will no doubt be hailed as the 'originator.'Powering thru a decade of hardships and haters, back-stabbing and broken contracts to get bigger and badder every year. His lyrical talent has earned him props from Tupac, Eminem, and many more.
