Blueface, an American rapper and songwriter, boldly declared himself the best lyricist in the hip hop game, according to social media.
“Hey cuz, that’s on my mom and my sis: I’m the best lyricist in the muthafuckin’ game, bro,” he said. “I might not have the best flow, sound—uh, I don’t know what the fuck ya’ll be listening to when ya’ll be listening to this other bullshit, but when it come to wordplay, cuz? Come on, bro.”
The 22-year-old rapper, whose real name is Johnathan Michael Porter, went on to spit some lines from an unreleased song.
“I’m at the Ritz Carlton hotel blowin’ zips/This is a non-smoking room/But can no ho tell me shit/’Cause bitch, I’m the shit,” he rapped, before adding, “Oh my fuckin’ goodness.”

According to XXL, Blueface was originally more interested in football than rapping. Blueface attended Arleta High School in Los Angeles, California. The school’s coach Bill Coan told XXL that “he was very coachable” as the team’s starting quarterback in 2014.
Blueface reportedly graduated from Golden Valley High School in Santa Clarita, California, in 2015. He received a scholarship to play football at North Carolina’s Fayetteville State University, where he attended for two months before dropping out.
After dropping out, Blueface told the outlet that he “was gonna keep trying to do football, play like, junior college, until, you know, [I] make that happen. My mom had moved after I went to college, so it was just me, trying to pretty much do college and support myself and get a car and shit like that. Once that became too hard, I guess I just went back to the streets and shit.”
