Blueface Reps the Westside in His ABCs
Hard work has paid off for Blueface. The 2019 XXL Freshman became one of the most buzzed about artists of 2019, following the success of his hit song “Thotiana.” He's kept the momentum going with singles like “Stop Cappin,” the Rich The Kid-assisted “Daddy” and “Bussdown” with Offset and by adding his unique flare to tracks from French Montana, G-Eazy and newcomer NLE Choppa. “I feel like I’m the sole inspiration for my come up,” Blueface says in his 2019 XXL Freshman interview. Aside from boasting about the position he rightfully earned, this year’s 10th spot winner pulled up for XXL’s ABCs.
Always repping for his side, the native of Los Angeles makes multiple references to his hometown. “A is for avenue,” says Blueface as he begins his ABCs. “Longwood Avenue to be exact.” He also shows the West more love when he nears the end of the alphabet, calling out “West” once reaching the letter W.
Now accustomed to the Cash Money lifestyle, Blueface, who dropped a cool million dollars on a house earlier this year, expects the finer things in life, like car service and fancy watches. So it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that the “Bleed It” rapper chooses "Rolex" for the letter R and “valet” for V. With his mind on his mula, the 22-year-old, who says the letter M represents “money,” jokes that the letter N is for “No, you can’t have no money.”
Having gone viral for Crip Walking, the Famous Cryp has made his affiliations very clear. When coming across the third letter in the alphabet, Blueface, a member of the notorious California-rooted gang says, “C is for Crips.”
