Nevertheless, he’s acquired nearly all of his profession accolades since shifting genres in 2020 with Tickets To My Downfall.
However now, he’s back rapping, because of fellow Midwesterner EST Gee’s new album I By no means Felt Nun.

It’s a strong lure track and to be sincere, not that far off the mark from the music he used to make previous to 2019.

That short-lived however eventful feud with Eminem couldn’t have helped much, both. He does have just a few defenders, although, who have been fast to remind their fellow customers that he used to get bars off.
