He quit meager duties in home state and also left petty scandals to make date with money that currently makes him go crazy.
Blac Youngsta’s main breakthrough came after countless arrests and the aftermath of the demise of his kid brother. His brother was more than a friend and an accomplice in the bad things that he did in the past. The lonely part of his life made him to try something that he had been practicing, though not as a career. And that’s how he ended up becoming an accomplished rapper in Memphis.
The breakthrough and success
Youngsta first rose into prominence in 2014 after the release of the hit song ‘Heavy’ which was in his third mixtape, First Brick. However, his fame was only restricted within his neighborhoods and region. He later came into the limelight after catching the attention of another recording artist, Yo Gotti who allowed Blac Youngsta to appear in his videos.
The one-on-one meeting between Blac Youngsta and Yo Gotti led to the former grocery worker obtaining an opportunity to have a two- month tour with Yo Gotti. The tour would later culminate into Gotti taking his signature at CMG record label together with Epic Records in 2015.

In March 2017, a woman named Bnell Williams alleged that she had an affair with the rapper. The rapper profusely dismissed the claims citing that he had kids. It’s not clear why he vehemently talked about the children he had but maybe because he wanted respect.
