    At one point listening to him was considered vulgar, because of his lewd, uncultured and unfiltered lyrics.

    He was once embroiled in a huge scandal that stemmed from his colleagues hating on him for being called the king of Fuji by late Barrister.

    Most disagreed with the believe that he deserved the title.
