Why he might be annoying:

    He was expelled from the eighth grade for bringing a gun to school.
    He was a drug dealer before becoming a rapper.
    He spent two years under house arrest on weapons charges.
    He was arrested on auto theft charges (January 17, 2020): he had 'borrowed' a $375,000 Rolls Royce for a video shoot in California, and instead of returning the car, he had it transported to his mother's home in Brooklyn.

    He was a good enough basketball player to be signed by a Philadelphia prep school.
    Any plans for a basketball career ended when he was diagnosed with a heart murmur at age 15.
    He was named Best New Artist at the BET Hip Hop Awards (2020).
    His distinctive voice was described by one critic as 'bridging the gap between 50 Cent and Vito Corleone.'
