Jonathan Porter, famously known as Blueface (or Blueface Bleedem) is an American rapper from Los Angeles, California. He became a viral internet meme after releasing ‘Respect My Crypn’ in October 2018. His off-beat and high pitched style of rapping was the main reason for this. He signed to Cash Money West, Birdman’s Cash Money Records branch at West Coast.
Porter was born on January 20, 1997, in Mid City, Los Angeles. He is 22 years old as of 2019.
Jonathan Porter has both parents and an older brother. No other information is disclosed about his family.
Porter has kept his relationship life very private.
No information about Porter’s children is disclosed.
Blueface attended various elementary schools while growing up. He settled down in San Fernando Valley and began to attend Arleta High School. He became the starting quarterback in 2014 and led his team to an East Valley League championship in 2014. He graduated from Tahquitz High School and joined Fayetteville State University in North Carolina. He, however, stopped attending due to coaching issues.
Porter took an interest in rap music at a young age. He began rapping in 2018 and took the stage name Blueface Bleedem. He moved back to Los Angeles after he stopped playing football. He began to work with Laudiano (his friend and later producer) to release ‘Dead Locs,’ his first song to SoundCloud. He then released his full-length project in June 2018 titled ‘Famous Cryp.’ He then released ‘Two Coccy,’ his second Extended Play (EP) to SoundCloud after the first one helped him build a local following in California.
Through WorldstarHipHop’s YouTube channel, he released a video for his song titled ‘Respect My Crypn.’ The song was thereafter posted to Twitter where it became a viral meme due to Bluface’s off-beat flow and high-pitched rapping. Users compared his voice to that of Courage The Cowardly Dog, the cartoon character. The video’s popularity made his music receive more attention. He further boosted his popularity when he did a contest on his Instagram page that week regarding which high school he should come and visit. The social media stunt racked in new followers and attention to the rapper. He was signed to Cash Money West, the West Coast affiliate of Cash Money Records.
He again went viral following an acoustic video with Einer Bankz previewing his new song “Bleed It” in December 2018. The song was released two days later, including a video on the Lyrical Lemonade YouTube channel directed by Cole Bennett, that garnered over 2 million views in just 24 hours. On January 26, 2019, his latest song, ‘Thotiana,’ premiered on the Billboard Hot 100 and was ranked at position 75. It was his first track to chart on a Billboard chart. The song was later released as a single on the same day and a remix with YG was released with a music video.

Blueface In Jail
Blueface Is Reportedly Facing 3 Years In Prison For A Felony Weapons Charge
Blueface has reportedly been arrested and can potentially be facing three years behind bars… Californian rising rapper Blueface, 22, was caught with an unregistered, fully-loaded firearm on his person at the beginning of this month, leading to his arrest. After the recent success of his song ‘Thotiana’ being one of the biggest songs out at the moment, this is the last thing the rapper could have wanted to happen.
The Blast has reported the Cali rapper has officially been charged in relation to his arrest on (Feb 1st). He is allegedly facing a maximum sentence of three years behind bars. A report from The Blast reveals that Blueface was arrested after he and a large group of men were hanging out when they were approached by the LAPD.
The rapper’s friend allegedly tried to get rid of their weapons, but Blueface got caught out. The Los Angeles County D.A.’s office publication notes reveal Blueface was in possession of an unregistered handgun. The felony charge carries a maximum sentence of three years in prison.
Back in November 2018, Blueface was arrested as he was allegedly in connection with a highway shooting. Blueface happened to get apprehended at a gas station in both arrests. DJ Akademiks reposted a video of the 2018 arrest on his Instagram. Twitter has also revealed footage and photos of his arrest, where Blueface seemed unbothered by the matter.
In the video, the police officer is shown pushing Blueface forward in a straight line, and tells him, “You are under arrest,”. Blueface responded “Yeah Aight”. He was reportedly released after posting $35,000 bail. Some fans are questioning whether Blueface’s response while getting arrested, is him being nonchalant about the situation – or whether he doesn’t want to irritate the police to prevent other unfortunate events from happening.
Blueface Talks ‘Famous Cryp’, ‘Thotiana’, ‘Next Big Thing’ His Quick Rise To Fame-YouTube
Blueface makes punchline-packed music that’s simultaneously bubbly and morose. There’s a gritty feel to its composition, frequently involving the hyperactive, sensational melodies that make California hip-hop the stuff to vibe to in the club. The 21-year-old Los Angeles rapper and Cash Money West signee have quickly carved out his own space in the field with an offbeat flow that sounds like he’s chasing a train that he just keeps missing. Because of it, he became the viral star to close out the end of 2018, and one to watch the rise in the new year. And alongside him is Laudiano — the producer behind the beats for “Respect My Crypn” and “Studio,” two of Blueface’s most important songs — whose proximity gives him insight into the rapper’s rapid rise.
Also based out of L.A., Laudiano has been making beats for two years and has worked with the likes of Drakeo the Ruler, Stunna Girl, and Shoreline Mafia. His connection with Blueface came organically. “I contacted him after I saw his video for ‘Deadlocs,’” Laudiano told MTV News. “I sent him some beats and he emailed me back saying he fucked with them. He shot a video of himself in his car rapping to them and we went from there.”
Laudiano entered into Blueface’s world, where unorthodox flows and energetic rhymes are the norms. Blueface is, as West Coast legend Ice Cube noted, “an acquired taste.” For every fan that he attracted early on, he pissed off two more who felt that he was making a mockery of rap. But Laudiano has created the perfect atmosphere for this off-kilter style.
