Kurious is a Puerto Rican rapper hailing from Spanish Harlem, New York City. He made his first notable appearance on the album "Black Bastards" by socially conscious, New York rap trio KMD. Since then he's kept a tight connection to MF DOOM, the Monsta Island Czars and MF Grimm, and released his debut solo album titled "A Constipated Monkey" in 1994. The title suggests Kurious packs "hard shit" in his lyrics, and he adds a Latin flavor to his songs. Relying heavily on samples and breakbeats provided by producers The Beatnuts, and documenting gritty tales of life in the Latin community of New York City, Kurious' only album serves as an underground near-classic for hip-hop's golden era.
