LIFE WITHOUT A MOM

The Florida-born rapper grew up in Broward County under his grandmother’s wing with his teenage mom entering and exiting his life as she pleased. He already exhibited violence as a child yet later in his life said:

“Regardless of the negative around my name, regardless of the bad things people say to me, I don’t give a [expletive].”

Onfroy would start fights in grade school to get attention from his mom and later beat up a female classmate with his mom’s alleged blessing.

IN TROUBLE WITH THE LAW

Before even reaching 18, the musician already had several charges and did time in juvenile prison. During his time behind bars, the arrogant teen beat a cellmate he believed was gay.

CRITICIZING THE GRAMMYS

In the 2019 Grammy Award ceremony, several artists who died from 2018 to 2019 were honored on the big screen. Stars such as Mac Miller, Ed King, and Avicii, were included, but Onfroy was not.

Fans of the late rapper called out the Grammys for leaving out their favorite musician. Among the reasons people believe he was not part of the roster was because of his many legal issues with domestic violence.

It wasn’t a secret that Onfroy had several wrongdoings including beating his pregnant partner and threatening to kill both her and their child.

Despite the negativity surrounding him, many consider the rapper’s music therapeutic and relatable to their lives.
