Blueface has so far not been facing a problem stepping outside of his comfort zone. He was the very same guy who moved to the country from the stomping grounds of West Los Angeles. He pledged allegiance at the age of eighteen to the School Yard Crips. He played football at the Fayetteville State University in North Carolina.
Dex, the groomer of the rapper for the day, proves that the risk is worth the reward. This is also while the West Coast native sits inside the Manhattan Office of XXL. The twenty-two-year-old rapper said that it is even perfect as he peered at his reflection in the mirror.
Blueface pays so much attention not to his music but to his haircut. He is just so fairly new to the rap standards. There were already rappers from the West Coast like the Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, and YG. They also have been known for spitting rhymes in their teenage years. But, Blueface is one year to be removed from entering the rap game. He also said that he feels like he is the freshman of the year.
His confidence was bravely warranted because of his piano-driven “Thotiana”. This climbed to number 9 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. This was after it debuted at No. 75 in the month of January. This was a year after the song was released by way of SoundCloud. This brought out an off-kilter flow that dodges the bassline of the instrumental. The prediction of Blueface is that the song will turn out as number one.
With the social media of Johnathan Porter, the rhymer, it gave so much recognition Johnathan Porter, the rhymer, has his social media that brought forth early recognition. This has pushed Blueface up the charts. This featured voice sounds to the quips like the Courage the Cowardly Dog to the sororities that mimic his Bust Down Dance. The highlight is that Blueface smoothes his eyebrows, licks his two fingers, twirls his hips, bends his knees, and grabs his front waistband. He has really seen them all on Twitter and Instagram. He is also aware of his own meme moments. He also does crip walking in all kinds of weather like snow and rain.
Even before doing the Bust Down, Blueface was already interested in doing football than rapping. At the age of seven, and under the tutelage of his father, he appeared in the commercial of McDonald. He was in cleats on the field. What more, he was very approachable according to Coach Bill Coan. He may be an anti-social during his high school years, but he graduated from the Golden Valley High School in Santa Clarita, California. He also received a scholarship in playing football from the Fayetteville State University in North Carolina. He also attended college for 2 months before he finally dropped out due to being disgruntled with the athletic department and homesickness.
His junior college was spent trying to play football years. As his Mom had moved after he went to college, he also did much his support and college himself. He then found himself his first studio session when he returned an iPhone dongle to a fellow rapper and friend TeeCee4800 in 2017. This was what he believed to be his destiny providing him the opportunity of hitting the booth and record vocals. It was at that moment that he was serious about it.
After several months, he grew up listening to The Game and Snoop Dogg, and 50 Cent. He also had hit the local high schools to follow off the grassroots self-promotion along with the release of songs like “Respect My Cryppin” and “Dead Locs”. In 2018, Blueface scored not just one but two deals eOne for the Famous Cryp album. This mainly includes “Thotiana” along with other remixes of the song including Cash Money West/Cash Money/ Republic Records.
Blueface had such diversity according to his vice president and manager, Wack 100. He really sounded different from his music that got the manager’s attention. It was just that his time in the streets caught up with him arrested after he opened fire. After four months, he was also arrested again due to gun possession.
Moreover, he showcases his truly unique style on his coming major label. This is what he planned to drop during the summer. He also does collaborations with Quavo, Drake, G-Eazy, Lil Pump, and Mozzy. There is also the additional remix with the French Montana. He also plans to follow the remixes of “Thotiana” featuring Cardi B and YG.
Blueface now has his vision of his success this year, 2019. He will continue to go higher and higher and be number one and on top!
