It's been a long road for the Harlem rapper, who was seriously buzzing back in 2008 thanks to mixtapes like Sonic the Hamilton, but he lost his deal with Interscope Records the following year, and was jailed on assault charges in 2010.

He's still continued to release music over the years, and perform select shows -- including an SOBs performance in 2012 -- but it looks like 2015 is the year he's really hoping to come back strong.
He recently returned to social media, dropped a new single called "Correct" last month, and signed with the same management company that represents Rita Ora and Iggy Azalea.
So then, big things on the horizon?
We just hope he doesn't lose his eccentricity. In 2012 he took MTV News on a "supernatural" journey when he tried to explain a J. Cole diss track, and he also spoke at length about working with Eminem, and how his Interscope deal fell apart.
