Curtis Stewart, better known by his stage name Kidd Kidd, is an American rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana. He was discovered by Lil Wayne while rapping on a corner in New Orleans. He was one of the first members of the Young Money Entertainment record label, as a part of Southern hip hop group Sqad Up, alongside fellow rappers Gudda Gudda and T-Streets.[1] In 2004, disputes between members of the group and Lil Wayne caused them to leave the Young Money label and eventually disband. Kidd Kidd would later rejoin the label and make an appearance on Lil Wayne's 2008 hit single "Mrs. Officer", however after not appearing in the video, Kidd Kidd severed ties with Wayne once again.[2]

In June 2011, two weeks after meeting New York City-based rapper 50 Cent, Kidd Kidd was shot six times.[2] In July 2011, it was announced Kidd Kidd secured a recording contract with 50 Cent's G-Unit Records.[3] 50 Cent empathized with Kidd Kidd's situation, reminiscent to his own shooting in 2000, and instead of walking away much like Columbia Records did to him, 50 Cent chose to help Kidd Kidd.[4] He was subsequently featured on his G-Unit label-mate Tony Yayo's 2011 single "Haters", two weeks later.[5] Kidd Kidd has went on to appear on numerous 50 Cent's projects, such as The Big 10 (2011), The Lost Tape (2012) and 5 (Murder by Numbers) (2012). After being prominently featured on 50 Cent's fifth album Animal Ambition, which was released in June 2014, Kidd Kidd was added to the East Coast hip hop group G-Unit.
