There are so many great videos out on the Internet, but the best of them can usually be found on YouTube. Sensations like Jenna Marbles, Miranda Sings, and even Justin Bieber found success on the video streaming website.

But there’s another YouTube star you may not have heard of. RiceGum, also known as Bryan Le, has over 10.3 million subscribers, with an additional 1.5 million on his second channel. But who is RiceGum exactly? Here are some details about his rise to Internet fame, including his bizarre beef with 9-year-old rapper Lil Tay.

1. He originally started as a video gaming Youtuber.

RiceGum would record himself playing Call of Duty, and also had other videos in which he talked about himself while playing Modern Warfare 3.

Since then, he has changed his channel to focus more on comedy and music.

2. He’s known for his diss tracks.

His most well known and popular track is called “It's EveryNight Sis,” which features fellow YouTuber Alissa Violet. The song has over 140 million views!

He also has a track called “Bitcoin” in which he makes scathing remarks about the Cash Me Outside girl AKA Bahd Barbie (you may remember that sh*tstorm from Dr. Phil):

Keep bragging 'bout you getting money

But the label taking half, ayy

Add it up, quick maths, ayy

You just broke and you sad

Little girl, I don't know what you wanna beef about

You are not what you tweet about

You are just a rat looking girl who Twitter just made a meme about

If you got money bring it out

Ghost writer, just bring him out

What happened with YoungBoy?

You weren't a b*tch you wanna keep around

Guess you really couldn't keep him down

How the f*** are you 14 with rumors that you sleep around?

3. His music has ranked on Billboard.

His hit “It's EveryNight Sis” ranked in at #80 on the US Billboard Hot 100. The song is a response to Jake Paul’s “It’s Everyday Bro” and insults him repeatedly. (Alissa Violet, who is featured on the track, is Paul’s ex-girlfriend.)

It's everyday bro with the same bully flow

Bully at school, now bullying your bro

Diss your own brother, I don't really get it though

Stop bragging just accept nobody knows your Disney show

4. He was featured in a Superbowl commercial.

The ad featured RiceGum as a man on the subway, inspired by Iggy Azalea “to fashion a headset from scratch, which is accepted by an executive.” The commercial was for Monster headphones, so what better way to sell them than by having a musician as the star?

5. He was involved in a controversy where he embarrassed a rape victim.

In a video, Ricegum is video chatting with a young woman, who mentions that one of her ex-boyfriends raped her while she was intoxicated. He asks her, “Did it feel good though?” and how long the rape lasted, and then says, “Oh, okay, so it’s not that bad.” He then tells his viewers, “Guys, if you want to rape her, she won’t sue you.”

He posted an apology video on Twitter, but really, who says stuff like that?

6. He allegedly turned down a full-ride scholarship to Harvard.

Though we don’t know if that’s actually true, RiceGum tweeted that he forfeited a Harvard scholarship and education to pursue a career in Internet fame.

7. He has a net worth of over $2.5 million.

Wow. To think you can start from a gamer on YouTube to living the high life in Los Angeles. It’s crazy what can happen when you take advantage of how powerful the Internet is.

8. Lil Tay wants to be like him.

In a scathing investigation into the 9-year-old "rapper," a sourcec lcaims that Lil Tay is trying to replicate RiceGum's succcess. "I personally don’t know her parents enough to speculate, but like I said, the culture in [Canadian city] leads me to believe that she at least is flossing her parent’s cash and making a move to be the next RiceGum,” the source told Jezebel. Rice Gum also says Tay bullied his little sister, so he created an entire video blasting the 9-year-old. Staged? Probably. Either way, the whole manifested drama thing is bizarre.
