An American hip-hop star whose hits include 2018's "Thotiana" and 2019's "Daddy," Blueface was born as "Jonathan Porter" in Los Angeles, California, on January 20, 1997. He was a talented athlete in high school and briefly played football in college, as well, although he ultimately returned home and began rapping in 2017. His debut single, "Fuck It Up," was released that same year, but it was 2018's "Thotiana" that truly launched his career, with the single peaking at Number 8 in the US and Number 15 in the UK. It also appeared on his debut EP, 2018's Famous Cryp, whose title referenced his ties to L.A. gang culture. The EPs Two Coccy and Dirt Bag followed in September 2018 and August 2019, respectively, with the latter release producing the gold-selling single "Bleed It" and the platinum hit "Daddy." Find the Beat, Blueface's full-length debut, followed in 2020 and peaked at Number 39 on Billboard's Top Hip-Hop Albums chart. That same year, he appeared on DDG's platinum-selling single "Moonwalking in Casablasas" and continued working on new material, with the Top 40 hip-hop hit "Outside (Better Days)" appearing in 2021.
