One of the cooler parts about writing for a blog is being an outlet for aspiring artists, serving as a platform to have their music heard by a larger audience. So when Chicago rapper Curt reached out to me via a mutual friend, I gave his music a listen and was impressed by the wordplay skills the young emcee possessed. Over the weekend many college students, including Curt, celebrated their graduation, a perfect time for him to drop his latest track “Commencement.” A thoughtful ballad about the new beginnings that this marquee event brings forth, he calls it “the commencement speech I never read.” Peep the track below and let us know if you’re feeling the lyrics. Get familiar with more UPComing artists here.
