hit and gained him plenty of attention, so much in fact that the underground hip hop community was anxiously awaiting the
arrival of his next one. Finally in 2013 he released his second mixtape, Acid Rap which was another big hit. He has collaborated
with some of the biggest names in underground hip hop and tours constantly while at the same time also relentlessly working
