Whats Good … I hear you a fellow Brooklynite… What part you reppin ?Oh man I rep Brooklyn under one umbrella but… I walk the corner of Carroll and Utica everyday… Crown Heights to be exact.
How you get such a name as Curtains ?
Curtains simply mean the show stopper… you know my whole demeanor is boss…flashy…cocky if you wanna call it that…out in Chicago they say snapping…its just my whole being. I’m a young, handsome, insanely fly gentleman and when I walk in a room my presence demands that attention. Hence the name Curtains.
Tell me more about Hang Em High Entertainment ?
Hang Em High is my family. It aint a crew it aint a label, it aint a rap click, it aint niggas i just hang out with. Its my real family. From my brothers to my sisters, we just rep that name Hang Em High. The real company is High Society Life Inc. That’s the umbrella all of my business ventures fall under. From party promotions, to my upcoming fashion magazine, to my blog, to the clothing venture to the music…everything business wise is HSL Inc. but Hang em High is the family.
Any projects you have coming up in the near future ?
Hell yeah, the mixtape “The Great Adventures Of Dope Boy C: Dope City Vol. 1″ coming soon…the album “Its A Beautiful Life” coming soon. The HSL magazine coming soon, HSLC clothing coming back soon. I got the theme song to an upcoming show on ESPN, shouts to my man Coodie on that. I been out in LA for the past 2 1/2 months working on a movie and a tv show and getting this Hollywood experience. That’s bout it really, staying on my toes lyrically, fashion game upgrading everyday, making pretty ladies smile and keeping the sucker niggas pissed. That bout it for young’n these days.
Who’s some producers or artist you wouldn’t mind working with ?
Shiiiit, Kanye “The Flyest” West is #1 on my list and that aint too far from fruition. Other than that I been working with this kid Seige from Detroit/LA and he’s probably gonna be the best producer after my album drop. Anybody with heat is welcome in my studio session.

I always ask emcees this … If a somebody diss you lyrically will you entertain the issue ?
Not full out, but I’ll be sure to slip something into some song somewhere…no nigga is worth a whole fucking record from me…Hell nah…Unless its personal, and even then I dont think I’ll go at it that far. I hate diss records, niggas never say I’ll shit, they just pop shit…so I’ll leave that alone really. I’m all bout my happy music…(LAUGHS).
