Soon enough, he dropped his debut album, Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 1, which peaked at number 38 on the Billboard 200. One year later, he dropped his second album, Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 2, which debuted at number four on the Billboard 200.

The rapper had a history of substance abuse, which was primarily due to his mental health, including depression and bipolar disorder.
