Blueface scored his most successful single with a remix of his song Thotiana featuring Cardi B and YG that peaked at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

He released his debut studio album Find The Beat in 2019.

Blueface was born in Los Angeles and played football for Arleta High School in the San Fernando Valley area.

He started rapping in January 2017 under the stage name Blueface Bleedem, a reference to his ties to the School Yard Crips street gang.

Blueface previously was arrested in November 2018 in California and charged with shooting at an occupied vehicle after he fired at a gas station robber. He also was arrested in February 2019 for felony gun possession after law enforcement recovered a loaded, unregistered handgun in his possession.
