His fashion sense has been complimented by Ye and he has recently professed his affiliation with Pusha T’s Re-Up Gang records on his newly released “23” EP.

With new music circulating and his current position as Brand Director for the high end street line En Noir, Curt@!n$ continues to excel on both fields.

Jay-Z starts off his first show in BK with “99 Problems”, but before that he lets go of a new verse:

This is Rich Porter, part two
You can stunt like that when you’re rich before your debut
Money and the murder, rapper or the trapper
Either way I’m gonna serve ya
Shooters on my team… No really, I got shooters on my team
Juan or Deron
How you niggas want it, pick a arm
They call me Lucky Lefty…
Ball so hard I don’t respect the fuckin’ referees
