FIRST-TIME HOMEOWNER

In the first photo, Hill grinned at the camera while holding up a pair of house keys. The rapper was dressed in a bright orange printed T-shirt and a unique gray and black hat as he posed for pics in different areas of the house.

In one photo, Hill threw a "peace" sign while holding a huge star-shaped congratulatory balloon as he stood in a stairway before heading to the kitchen and bathroom for more photos.

FROM COLLEGE DROPOUT TO HITMAKER

Indeed, Hill deserves success and comfort after all the hard work he has put into creating one hit song after another. As a college dropout, his journey to fame and fortune was an incredible one.

After tirelessly promoting his song, "Old Town Road," on social media, Hill cracked the Billboard Top 100 until controversy regarding the song's genre threatened to set him back.

BREAKING RECORDS

Billboard disqualified the song from the country charts, which only opened more doors for Hill. He was soon linked with acclaimed country music crooner Billy Ray Cyrus and the pair recorded a remix to the catchy song.

The "Old Town Road" remix broke the Billboard record for most weeks in the number one spot after 17 weeks. The song cemented the young rapper's reputation in music, but a personal revelation made him an icon in an unexpected way.

REPRESENTING THE LGBT COMMUNITY

While making headlines for his music, Hill courageously came out as gay in June 2019, and his revelation was met with praise and acceptance. The "C7osure" rapper instantly became the poster boy for gay pride.

Hill acknowledges that society doesn't fully accept the LGBT community and often takes an active approach to homophobia. He recently clapped back at fellow rapper, Tekashi 6ix9ine, for posting a homophobic comment on Instagram.
