Paterson’s very own, born Willie Maxwell II,  turns 25 today and we’re celebrating with a list of 12 reasons we can’t get enough of the rapper. His debut self-titled album went platinum, while singles like “My Way,” “Trap Queen” and “679” went crazy in the club and ultimately topped the Billboard charts.  Need we say more?

Find out just how much we love the rapping crooner below:
