Blac Youngsta is an American hip hop artist out of Memphis, Tennessee. He is currently signed to Yo Gotti‘s CMG label and Epic Records. His breakout single “Heavy,” released in 2014, got him nationwide attention. Not only was he receiving hype form his hot mixtapes, but his conflict with Young Dolph, without a doubt, made his name well known. Officially named Samuel Benson, he was born on April 8, 1990 in Southern Memphis, Tennessee. Like many rap artists, he was brought up in a life of poverty. His family was at a financial disadvantage and often struggled to put food on the table. As a result, Blac Youngsta took on employment at the young age of 10. Being the oldest of three brothers, he worked at a grocery store and took home leftovers. Said gig did not last long as he was discharged for falsifying orders with the intent to take home unclaimed food. After getting fired, the young teenager turned to selling drugs. Inevitably, Blac Youngsta got arrested and jailed several times for selling drugs and brandishing a gun. It was behind bars that he started rapping seriously.

The first two segments arrived in 2012 while the other landed in 2014. As his reputation grew, Youngsta would constantly host parties throughout his hometown. In 2014, Blac Youngsta’s life changed forever after his younger brother was gunned down. That same year, he released his hit single “Heavy.” The song portrays the emotional struggle he went through after losing his brother.
