Coming out of Michigan but currently based in Chicago, Denace is an up-and-coming rapper who's best known for an uncanny vocal similarity to Eminem. Though he's not as advanced of a lyricist, he's definitely mastered Shady's multiple flows and penchant for highly personal, angry-yet-poppy songwriting. He's been doing his thing for several years now, and on the appropriately titled The Gift and the Curse, he continues his style of sounding exactly like Em, often rhyming about how much they sound alike. Whether you'll dig this depends how you feel about the original 8 Mile emcee. If you worship his every verse and can't wait for more new material, Denace might be exactly what you need. If the thought of a blatant rap impersonator is somewhat offputting (see: Shyne jacking Biggie's style), you may want to pass. Regardless, Denace's songwriting is sharp, and the production is solid throughout, with highlights such as "Never Change," "Tired of Being Broke," and the John Lennon–sampling "Letter 2 Myself."
