NoCal rapper Young Curt has died in a car accident, according to multiple reports.
Curt [Curtis Denton of Antioch] was killed when his vehicle rolled over on a highway in Contra Costa County at 2 AM this morning.
It is believed he was speeding and lost control navigating a bend.
While Curt wasn't a household name, he was big in the Bay Area and is often credited with influencing the SoCal sound of Tyga, YG and DJ Mustard.
Curt burst on the scene ten years ago as a teenager with tracks like 'No B*tch.'
Curt was 27. RIP.
