He is originally from the south but was raised in northern Memphis. His mother worked in a Nike factory and his father is serving time behind bars. He grew up listening to the likes of Eminem and T.I. At the age of 8, BlocBoy JB started smoking marijuana. Missing a father figure, he initiated and joined a gang at 16. By time high school comes around, BlocBoy was already shooting dice and “getting money.” In class, instead of focusing on his academics, he often wrote rap songs. He completed up to the 10th grade before stopping to pursue money. He earned his stage name from constantly being on the block. The last two initials represent his father.
BlocBoy JB first started recording in his brother’s home studio. From watching YouTube videos, he learned to hone his craft. He specifically placed emphasis on his ability to record from his closet, believing it produces a unique type of music. In 2016, BlocBoy released his first mixtape “Who Am I.” Soon After, he followed up with “Grape Juice” and “Who Am I 2.” His successful projects helped forge a professional connection with longtime correspondent Tay Keith, a Memphis beat-maker. As his career began to flourish, he got recognized by Yo Gotti. BlocBoy would look to Yo Gotti as a mentor.
In July 2017, BlocBoy JB unleashed his breakout mixtape “Who Am I 3.” The tape performed commercially well. The no-nonsense rap mix featured hot single “Shoot” produced by Tay Keith. Other note worthy singles include “First Day Bacc On Da Blocc” and “No Chorus PT 10.” To date, most of BlocBoy’s projects have Tay Keith fingerprints on them. BlocBoy JB would go on to release two other mixtapes, The Purple M&M and Simi, before linking up with big time Canadian Rapper, Drake. In February 2018, he alongside Drake released the single “Look Alive.” The collaboration proved successful as the music video already boasts over 19 million views on YouTube in less than a week. On social media, BlocBoy is also expanding his fanbase. His Instagram account brandishes almost 150k followers and counting.
BlocBoy JB’s height is 6ft. His estimated net worth is currently unknown. To compliment his music, he is an avid dancer. His signature moves include “wind it up” the “lump” and the “cigarette.” His dance move that accompanied the music video “Shoot” went viral in his home town.
