Young Curt was a very popular artist in the Bay Area, and many felt like he did not receive the recognition he deserved compared to many L.A. rappers. Young Curt had just released new music this past year and also had hit songs like “This Beat Hit,” and “No B—h,” which made a resurgence in popularity lately due to a TikTok challenge.
Furthermore, during an episode of the popular New York Times‘ music podcast, “Popcast,” Young Curt’s rapping style impressed The Fader‘s senior editor, Ben Dandridge-Lemco. Ben said, “I’m going to say another name that I’m positive hasn’t been said on a podcast: Young Curt. I guess it was during the hyphy movement and during the post-hyphy movement. He was putting all his music on MySpace. That’s where this whole sound comes from.”
