If you call him by the original birth name Sammie Marquez Benson, perhaps his fans and the world may not know about whom you are talking. But if you call him by the stage name Blac Youngsta the fans and followers would erupt in joy.
The hip-hop artist had already given some fantastic tracks to relish. The list of his songs includes ‘Booty’, ‘Hip Hopper’, ‘Drug Lord’, ‘I got something to say’, ‘Shake Sum’ and more.
His popularity would really make anyone astonish as he has already drawn over 2 million followers on his personal internet profile of Instagram. His superb albums had earned him a huge reputation as one of the most outstanding rappers of his time. ‘Young and Reckless’ and ‘I Swear to God’ had really satisfied the innumerable listeners all over wherever people love raps. ‘Heavy’ which has been released in 2014 has brought him enviable fame nationwide.
From then he is just trying his level best to fulfill the demands of the music world. He had already worked with ‘Mogul Management’, ‘Play Too Much Entertainment’ and ‘916% Entertainment’.
Starting was not so easy and while growing under the guidance of grandparents had to earn early to eat properly. Nothing comes easy. Youngsta is definitely one of the best examples who can show the world how to raise high instead of odds. There is no point cursing the fate and wondering in misdeeds which is very common in average teenagers. For them, Youngsta is an inspiring and encouraging personality.
He had really shown that if there is will there is a way. The man not educated and raised in the most inappropriate atmosphere had not only earned popularity and fame. But with it, he had accumulated a hefty net worth.
He still has a long way to go but already had gathered more than $2 million dollars as his estimated net worth. It is worth mentioning that this popular rapper is the owner of a mansion in Los Angeles which cost over $30million dollar. What is more noteworthy is that he had not forgotten the contribution of his grandmother in his life. He bought one house for his granny.
Blac Youngsta was born as Sammie Marquez Benson. The young handsome rapper who has just turned 28 was born on 8th April 1990 in Memphis, Tennessee, United States of America. We never know anything about his father and mother.
We also do not have any idea why and how he along with his brother reached to their grandparents. It can be easily understood that how this young boy and with his brother has been raised in the childhood. It can be stated that this rich singer of today has grown up without proper and enough food even. The question of education does not arise at all.
His grandfather was rather forced to do various odd jobs. But still, his grandma was failing to manage life as required.
Along with the financial crisis the grandparents were also very much bothered for Youngsta and his brothers because of the notorious locality. McMillan is really very infamous for its notorious atmosphere.
The young Youngsta could have chosen the wrong path. But instead of the high temptation of teenage, he took the responsibility of supporting the family. To help his grandparents he started working at a grocery market in the locality.
Actually is not the question of money but more severe just food for which the young Youngsta started the job. The hunger persuaded him to put fake pick-up orders at the store. When at the end of the day no one came for the ordered food he took the food. But he was caught soon and lost the job at the store.
Eventually as expected he joined a narcotic group to earn some money. Though some link with the unsocial activity was there in the twenties, he started finding interest in music. Simultaneously his unsocial activities were also there and as expected he was caught for unlicensed drugs and weapons. On various occasion, he was arrested and was behind the bars. The passed the longest time in prison when he was imprisoned for a year.
Quite surprisingly in contrast to other prisoners, he started rapping in the prison. Interest grew each day and soon he realized that with little more effort he can build a career in rapping. He started singing ‘Bills Bills Bills’ of Destiny Child and many other famous tracks of eminent singers. Gradually suggestions started coming in for rapping career.
In 2012 with the release of his first mixtape titled ‘Fast Brick’ he began his musical career. The first release was not easy and it took many hours in the studio to reach a satisfactory recording. The self-released mixtape earned the rapper near about $50 thousand dollars which are enough to encourage the rapper to proceed with his raps. A few months later in the same year in April he came out with his second mixtape based on the first released and titled as ‘Fast Bricks 2’. DJ Yung Rich hosted the production and added more tracks to the original compositions. The world saw a real promise in his second release.
After the two successful releases, Youngsta went into the deal with Empire. On 1st July 2014, he released his third mixtape tilted ‘Fast Bricks 3’. The release included more than 20 beats.
