Johnathan Jamall Porter, known professionally as Blueface, is an American rapper. In October 2018, after releasing the music video for his song “Respect My Crippin”, he became a viral meme due to his offbeat style of rapping.
Blueface’s off-beat style of rapping and unique voice has been compared to fellow California rappers E-40 and Suga Free, as well as rapper Silkk the Shocker.
Blueface has said that he writes “to the beat”, and uses the instrumental as a base for all of his songs.
