Stans: "He's the most entertaining rapper in hip-hop. And he's very funny."
Haters: "Ebro was right to call him out. He's fake, and he plays a caricature of black people."

The Reality: Lots of rappers are less than honest about their backgrounds—is he that different? His whiteness both gives him more positive attention from the press—and more scrutiny. He's an entertainer more than he is a rapper. At the end of the day, he is able to wed non sequiturs and a flashy sense of style. Although his rapping is pretty one-dimensional. He seems able to get the attention of journalists without ever having a hit song. Take that for what it's worth.
