Blueface net worth: Johnathan Jamal Porter, who goes by Blueface, is a rapper with a net worth of $4 million dollars. What’s he all about though? I did some digging.
1. Blueface was born on January 20, 1997 in LA. He played the sax in his school’s marching band. He was also on the football team. He became the starting quarterback in 2014, throwing for 1,724 yards and 21 touchdowns, leading his team to an East Valley League championship. After high school, he attended Fayetteville State University, where he played football, briefly, before dropping out. He is six-feet-three-inches tall.
2. After quitting college and returning to LA, Blueface had to swing by his friend’s studio to pick up a phone charger. While he was there, his friend challenged him to freestyle over a beat he had made. Blueface accepted and liked how his voice sounded on the mic. And that was the start of his music career. Prior to that incident, he had never even thought about rapping. Interestingly enough, it was during this random first-ever studio sesh that Blueface’s now well-known ad-libs “Blueface, baby!” and “Yea, aight” were born.
3. He first rapped under the moniker Blueface Bleedem, a nod to his past affiliation with the School Yard Crips street gang. His first major music video for his song, “Respect My Crypn,” became a viral meme, due to Blueface’s unorthodox style. He then took to social media to build buzz and setup small shows at local high schools, where he would perform on top of his car. Towards the end of 2018, Blueface signed with Birdman’s Cash Money West label.
4. Blueface benefitted from another viral moment in December of 2018, when an acoustic video of him and Einer Bankz teased his new song, “Bleed It.” Piggybacking off the hype, Blueface released the full song and music video two days later, generating more than two million views on the very first day of its release.
5. His first Billboard Hot 100 track, of course, was “Thotiana,” which dropped on January 26, 2019. Remixes with both YG and Cardi B earned him millions of additional fans and helped make Blueface a household name.
6. Blueface has dozens of tattoos, but he is best known for the Benjamin Franklin tat he strategically got on his right cheek, as opposed to the left—that way, if cops pull him over, it’s not the first thing they see. The Benji tat not only represents hundred dollar bills, but the prominent location was Blueface’s way of “burning the ships.” Once he got it, there was no turning back. He had to make it as a rapper, because, not a lot of jobs are eager to hire someone with ink all over their face. (Reminds me of Lil Skies.)
7. More money, more problems. Blueface once had to kick his own mother and sister out of his new pad, after they overstayed their welcome. He had already offered to put his sister up in his old apartment, but apparently that wasn’t good enough. She complained and asked for a new car. That was the last straw for Blueface, who told ’em both to skedaddle. At which point, his mother and sister got on Live and started vandalizing his house and breaking all the windows out.
8. While critics claim Blueface raps off beat, funny thing is, he has stated that the very way he makes songs is by writing to the beat. Blueface doesn’t seem to be bothered by the haters; he understands that, by being so polarizing, he’ll make more money in the long run.
9. In November of 2018, Blueface was at a Chevron gas station when a man tried to rob him. Blueface shot at the suspect’s car. Even though he claimed self defense, he was charged with a felony: shooting at an occupied vehicle. In February of 2019, Blueface was arrested for carrying a loaded, unregistered handgun—another felony offense.
10. Blueface has a son with Jaidyn Alexis. He was once in a polygamous relationship with her and another woman named Jiggy. The three of them were living together. Both Jaidyn and Jiggy got Benjamin Franklin tattoos on their hands, to honor Blueface. Not long after, he broke up with both of them. He’s still on good terms with his baby mama.
