Where does your name originally come from?
Scoop? This goes way back - middle school. So I used to play basketball. I was a basketball athlete, was a short chubby kid, but I had a jump shot. Crazy jump shot. Thats all I could do - shoot. When I got to high school, I just made it scoop. Then the curry came from playing basketball. I was playing all over NY. Trophies, all that. I had a basketball reputation and I just took it to music. You know how that go. I was a big Stephen curry fan. I still am. I put it together, Thats scoop curry for you.
Obviously a lot of talent is emerging from the NY Drill scene right now. What makes you different?
“I am real different. Right now I'm watching everybody go, and I know exactly what I'm doing. It's my time now, I drop my video Sunday, and then after that I'm dropping every three weeks.
