WHAT IT IS: The St. Petersburg native is on the rise with Ghetto Gospel, his third project within a year. The album, executive produced by Kevin Gates, peaked at #10 on the charts in its second week of release. The rapper first emerged with his 2018 mixtape Hunger Games 3. His breakthrough single, “Heart on Ice,” now gold-certified, portrays his ability to mellifluously weave in falsetto R&B notes throughout his verses.
