Blueface, born Jonathan Porter on January 20, 1997 in Los Angeles, California, is an American rapper and songwriter.

Blueface began rapping at age 12 but didn't take it seriously until after he graduated high school. He started to upload his music to SoundCloud and YouTube in 2016 when he changed his name from "Young Blue" to Blueface.

Since then he has collaborated with many other well-known artists such as Cardi B, YG, Snoop Dogg, Offset and more. 

In 2019 Blueface signed with Cash Money West, a division of Cash Money Records founded by Birdman.

In 2020 he released his debut studio album Find The Beat which debuted at number 58 on the US Billboard 200 chart. 

Blueface is known for being outspoken and controversial but his musical talent can not be denied as he continues to make waves throughout the hip hop industry.
