TeeRoy's 2 Cents:

  • He could go from “30 Under 30” and be looking at 10 to 30 years.
  • I’d love to be on the end of that MasterCard call asking if it was honestly me that bought a Jamaican villa.
  • Now is the opportune time to commit crimes. The court systems are backlogged and it will take years to catch up once the pandemic is gone.
  • Friendly reminder that millions of successful people did not get started in their careers until after the age of 30.
  • Only three weeks ago, G Herbo performed onThe Tonight ShowwithJimmy Fallon.

Last week,Forbes magazine identified Chicago rapper G Herbo as one of the 30 musicians under the age of 30 to watch.
