Early education, source of career

Jenn Carter started performing music and writing lyrics at home at 11. Her early influences included jazz, blues, hip-hop, and folk genres.

Jenn Carter said that listening to rappers Kendrick Lamar and Anderson Paak, and singers Bill Withers and Marvin Gaye impacted her passion for the sub-genre.

On the Bootleg Kev podcast, Jenn Carter mentioned that she attended a school in Canarsie, Brooklyn. She also said that she returned to Africa for a month in the middle of one school year. Unfortunately, while Jenn Carter loved the trip, she never understood the urgency and was a month behind on her obligations.

Jenn Carter enrolled into college in New York City but said that pursuing a music career distracted her, so she convinced her mom to allow her to pause her studies, but plans to restart them someday.

Career

“Notti Bop” premiere

In October 2022, Jenn Carter attracted the attention of online music publications such as Rolling Stone and Pitchfork, and the YouTuber No Jumper with the release of Kyle Richh’s single, “Notti Bop,” on which she was featured alongside TaTa. At one point, it was the number one trending song on YouTube, initiating a TikTok trend of people dancing or lip-synching. Pitchfork noted that TikTok tags with variations of the song’s name attracted over 10 million individually; the most popular, Notti bop, had over 23 million views in early 2024. Notti Bop became an unofficial music genre afterwards, because Jenn Carter, Kyle Richh, and TaTa wanted to differentiate themselves from drill rappers.

They stated that it was inspired by the 14-year-old Ethan “Notti Osama” Reyes, whom they ‘dissed,’ i.e., described negatively in the song. According to Sportskeeda, Notti Osama cornered and attacked a 15-year-old unnamed rival in July 2022. He had a few friends and carried a broomstick, wanting to dominate the 15-year-old. However, the rival stabbed Notti Osama in desperation, and he died at the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City.

Jenn Carter, TaTa, and Kyle Richh were also involved in a feud with artist Sha EK. Jenn Carter later dismissed the importance, and Kyle Richh stated that he forgot why they butted heads. However, inspiration for “Notti Bop” started with that conflict; they dissed Sha EK, and Notti Osama dissed them in response, shortly before his death.

Creating 41

In 2023, Jenn Carter co-founded the 41 music group with Kyle Richh, TaTa, and Dee Billz. – she and Kyle Richh had met TaTa through Dee Billz. In the interview with No Jumper, they explained that they grew up with similar dreams and started solo careers. However, after collaborating, they realized that they worked better as a team, as all had African heritage and distinct talents. TaTa told Rolling Stone that Jenn Carter contributes with lyrics, Kyle Richh excels at vocals, and TaTa brings the energy. Jenn Carter told No Jumper that she played the trumpet while Kyle Richh played the piano. She also plays the piano and plans to improve at guitar and drums.

Additionally, they felt no obstacles with Jenn Carter being female, as they saw her ‘as a gangster and one of the boys’ to the point of openly discussing their interests in women in front of her. Jenn Carter stressed that 41 is not a gang, as was speculated; instead, they consider each other family and their music part of a social movement.
