Curtains Starts ‘Luxury Minds’ Book Club In NYC, Debuts Clip for ‘RutHLe$$’

Rapper CurT@!n$ is the consummate cool guy. One of Complex’s “50 Most Stylish New Yorkers Right Now” Dope Boy C was rocking designer labels like Balenciaga, Dior, and Balmain years before other emcees even learned how to pronounce their names.

So what’s a cool guy like him doing starting a book club? “I started the [Luxury Minds] book club to get more young people into the habit of reading,” he explains. “I’ve been an avid reader since I was 6 years old and growing up books were always a great source of inspiration and education for me outside of traditional schooling.”

So far the reading list has included Paulo Coehlo’s The Alchemist and George Orwell’s Animal Farm. According to CurT@!n$, the group’s reading material should enrich the mind and the soul while providing an alternative to modern day mass distraction. “I want to give people more specifically kids an alternative to using their idle time. Technology has taken up so much of our time and consumed our lives heavily and I want to offer an alternative to web surfing and social networking and get kids to expand their horizons through the use of literature.” Making reading fashionable seems to be working so well that even CurT@!n$ cohort and collaborator Pusha T has said he’d show up to the gatherings.

Read a motherfuckin’ book and join CurT@!n$ tonight at 8:30 at the Blackscale store at 296 Elizabeth for the Luxury Minds Book Club. Contact them at [email protected] and watch his new video for “Ruthle$$” featuring Schoolboy Q below.
