Craig G (born Craig Curry in Queensbridge, New York)[1][2] is an American rapper. He is known as one of the members of hip hop producer Marley Marl‘s Cold Chillin’ Records group the Juice Crew.[3][4]

He recorded with Marley Marl in 1985, and in 1988 recorded “The Symphony” with the Juice Crew, described by Allmusic as “a landmark moment in the evolution of hardcore rap”, later influencing artists such as the Wu-Tang Clan.[4] He was then signed by Atlantic Records who released two albums, in 1989 and 1991, with little success.[4] After his experience with Atlantic his career went quiet for much of the 1990s although later in the decade he regained popularity with underground rap fans. He released another album in 2003 on the D&D label, This Is Now, featuring collaborations with Marley Marl, DJ Premier, and Da Beatminerz.[4][5]

Craig G was a leading freestyle battle rapper, memorably battling Supernatural on several occasions,[6] and in the early 2000s wrote and coordinated the battle verses used by Eminem‘s opponents in the film 8 Mile.[7]

In 2008, he was part of a reunited Juice Crew, performing at the A3C Hip Hop Festival in Atlanta, Georgia.
