The NETWORK for The Core DJ Syndicated Radio Show
Curtis Harrison raised in Queens, New York. I found out that rap was my heart when I saw the movie "Crush Groove". I started to write rhymes and battle other artists. In 1992, I joined a group call Raw Division and we release first single in 1995. My rap journey ended 1998.
I decided to pursue a college degree in graphic arts and Fashion. While in college I remember a project I made a magazine cover for a independent artist, which motivate me into starting a online magazine name First Verse. I had to raise money by selling t-shirts, in short period of time the t-shirts began more success than the magazine. Women began to request tee's for purchase, so I produced more and eventually added Men t- shirts to the mix. After selling t-shirts categorized urban targeting young adults, college students, who want to dress with little twist and discover their own style.

All it takes is to hear the first verse of your favorite song, first kiss, first love, whatever the memory, first verse begins to create for you. Our T-shirts is focus on strong character branding. Our designs always express a statement. The goal of first verse apparel is not to take stance on social issues but to merely bring it to light. This allows people to form their own interpretation use social media as vehicle to share their own website to connect with each other. The love of music and fashion brought First Verse Apparel to a variety of diverse products that will create urban wear with a Classy Flair.
