Bay Area rapper Young Curt has passed away, MTO News has confirmed. The rapper is the latest celebrity to pass away at age 27.
According to local reports, Young Curt - real name Curtis Denton Jr. was speeding on the Byron Highway in California at around 2am Monday morning. Police say that the rapper lost control of his vehicle, and drove straight through a curve and off the roadway into a ditch.
Unfortunately authorities say that Young Curt was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle as it rolled. He was found in serious condition, and was taken to Antioch Hospital. That's where Young Curt later died.
The rapper was 27 years old when he died. That's become an eerily common age for a celebrity to die.
