Cheers to him. He found a hack in the industry and has never looked back. At a time when rap music seems to be suffering commercially, he is making things exciting. You can tell that it's well deserved just by looking at the growth from his debut last year to the present times. He is currently the most appealing out of all the contenders in the category, and that's telling of his hard work and what he has set out to achieve".
