from Syracuse, NY, by way of Grapevine, TX— hardly a Compton-esque calling card. He tattoos nearly every space on his body, much like ’80s heavy metal acts. His crew reminds one of Kid Rock’s homies. With a parody that strong, he still did not market himself as a parody act as didWeird Al Yankovic. While he writes his lyrics in a serious vein, his delivery usually lacks seriousness.

His follow-up singles, “Congratulations,” and “I Fall Apart,” also did well, with the former certified diamond status, which means ten times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and the latter charting as high as No. 16.
