What a lot of people fail to realize is that there is a lot of pressure behind being successful. This is especially true, when a person reaches certain levels of fame. In 2006, Travie McCoy, then known as Travis McCoy, emerged as an unlikely star.

A black pop rapper, he ended up taking the game over. Back then, he was a part of Gym Class Heroes and “Take A Look At My Girlfriend” was their breakout track. The song took over MTV and it launched a solo career for McCoy.

After scoring with “Billionaire,” back in 2010, Travie McCoy ended up fading from the spotlight. Little did people know, he was actually suffering from drug addition, but he’s been open about it. This is something a lot of people probably didn’t realize, as they have been commenting on his IG pics, as of late.
