Blueface is an American rapper and songwriter. After he published his music video for “Respect My Crypn” in 2018, he went viral online. As of this writing, his most popular song is “Thotiana,” 2019 single that features Cardi B and YG and peaked at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100.
On January 20, 1997, in Los Angeles, California, Jonathan Michael Porter, better known as Blueface, was born. After attending Arleta High School in the San Fernando Valley, he moved from the Santa Clarita Valley region where he was raised. He once shared a home with his father in Oakland. He played football and marched in the band in high school. When the club won the East Valley League title in 2014, he was the starting quarterback for the school.
He temporarily attended Fayetteville State University in Fayetteville, North Carolina, after graduating from high school.
In January 2017, he started rapping, initially going by the name “Blueface Bleedem.” The School Yard Crips street gang was alluded to in the name. He allegedly came to light after being asked to a friend’s recording session to pick up a phone charger. He received a rap battle challenge just before leaving the studio. The final product was the song “Deadlocks,” which was posted to SoundCloud and established a little fan base.
In June 2018, he released a full-length album named “Famous Cryp” under his new stage name, “Blueface,” which is shorter. The album’s new name, “Dead Locs,” helped it gain popularity in Southern California. His single “Thotiana,” in its original form, was also included on the album.
In 2018, Blueface secured a contract with Cash Money West, the West Coast division of rapper Birdman’s Cash Money Records label.
