Gotta be honest, never even heard of him before today, and I've seen several others replying to tweets about this partnership with "who?". Apparently he has sold 45m+ records, how have I never heard of him? I haven't listened to much rap since the 2000's honestly, switched over to rock/metal around about 2008, so most of the rappers I know released music in the 2000's.

I think he dated a Kardashian/Jenner for a while or something. I only remember ever seeing him during that brief Super Bowl halftime appearance where everyone got really pissed about the whole SpongeBob introduction fake-out, only for it to lead into a Travis Scott rap.



I swear a read "tragic partnership"... well I don't think this will amount to anything.

Literally never heard of him.

You aren't alone. I have no idea who he is. Then again when it comes to music I listen to classic rock, hard rock, and heavy metal.

Even if you don't know his music, his meal at McDonald's went pretty viral a few weeks ago and he had that Fortnite concert earlier this year, also went pretty viral.

This PlayStation partnership is really no surprise

Tldr about La Flame (his nickname)

He's a producer turned rapper tbat became a Kanye West protege in the early 2010s and blossomed from there. He really began to bi the mainstream with his album Astroworld that came out in 2018 which sold incredibly well. 

Since then hes went on to perform at the Superbowl, and have a successful partnership with NIKE, Fortnite and McDonald's.
