Why he might be annoying:

    Insert your own language state joke.
    Not until the family relocated to NYC – when he was 13 – did he learn to speak English.
    He regards Snoop Dogg as an inspiration.
    Though once romantically linked to Khloe Kardashian, he insisted it was not to capitalize on her name.
    His father would eventually return to Morocco alone, four years later. (Mom cited a lack of homeland opportunities for remaining stateside with two boys.)
    He named his pet monkey Julius Caesor (and no, that is not a misspelling).
    He was forced to give up ownership of two tigers – named Ike and Tina – because he found it hard to care for or feed them (maybe he could help you?).

Why he might not be annoying:

    Understandable for his birthplace, he was into soccer (and later basketball) as a youth.
    Compared to many northern Africans and Middle Easterners, he has a relatively small nose.
    His moniker is a hybrid of the French protectorate of Morocco and a Scarface character.
    He regards 2pac and Wu-Tang Clan as inspirations.
    He was the victim of a shooting incident not far from his studio in the Bronx, which hospitalized him for several weeks and killed one of the gunmen (2003).
    His early partner’s 75-year prison sentence left him in full charge of their joint venture.
    Never mind, Khloe didn’t care if he capitalized on her fame, either.
