The Resume

    (April 22, 1990- )
    Born in Houston, Texas
    Birth name is Richard Colson Baker
    Recorded the successful albums 'Lace Up,' 'General Admission,' and 'Bloom'
    Recorded singles 'Wild Boy,' 'Till I Die,' 'Home,' 'Bad Things,' and 'Rap Devil'
    Acted in 'Beyond the Lights' and 'Roadies'

Why he might be annoying:

    He was a heroin addict.
    He did an episode of MTV's raunchy Catfish show.
    Google searches inevitably turn up his real gangster namesake.
    He set off a beef with Eminem after remarking that 16 year-old Hailie Mathers was 'hot as fuck' in a tweet.
    The beef resulted in his being name dropped in Shady's 'Not Alike' diss track, and later 'Killshot' (itself a clap back to Kelly's own 'Rap Devil' diss track).
    He was reportedly booed by Eminem fans while performing 'Rap Devil' while opening at a Fall Out Boy concert (although he would later assert that the footage was doctored to insert the sound of booing later).

Why he might not be annoying:

    He cites Guns n' Roses and DMX as among his stylistic influences.
    'Lace Up' debuted at number four on the US Billboard 200 chart (2012).
    'Bloom' peaked at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 (2017).
    He won a Radio Disney Music award for Best Collaboration, shared with Camila Cabello (2017).
    He has admitted to being a regular cannabis smoker and has defended it as both healthy and 'a source of happiness.'
    In the Hailie tweet, he stated that he meant it in 'the most respectful way possible cuz [Eminem] is King.'
    He claimed that the tweet got him both banned from Sirius XM radio and Em's own station Shade 45.
    He was praised for publicly clapping back to Eminem in a diss track with 'Rap Devil' (something nearly every other major rap artist has been afraid to do).
