In 2018, Blueface took off as he received his breakout hit single, “Thotiana.” This ended up receiving a remix from YG and Cardi B. This summer, he released his “Dirt Bag” EP which featured Offset, Rich The Kid, and more but couldn’t quite find a single which had the same success as Thotiana.
We’ve been seeing superstars such as Cardi B and Kodak Black give back to local communities and now, Blueface is trying to do the same. He is receiving criticism for his way of going about it though. He was seen in downtown Los Angeles today throwing money to people while he was on top of a car.
Many people on social media feel that this was very disrespectful as he could’ve just handed money to the people. This is a valid point. These people aren’t strippers in a club. This isn’t the first incident that drew controversy about Blueface as he also finally spoke on Nipsey Hussle’s death due to the public asking him to as he said “N*ggas die everyday B.”
Check out. the video of Blueface making it rain in DTLA along with Twitter reactions below.

Throwing a shitload of money at homeless people. yeah fights and stuff are totally not gonna happen. It would’ve just been better if he had just literally slid everybody there an envelope and not had somebody with a camera filming everything.

There’s a lot of desperate ppl on skid row all this did was make a spectacle of their desperation and possibly incite violence and fights over cash. Why do this when you can do something more effective?

That’s not giving to those in need that’s humiliating those in need

He is not giving out money. He is making a spectacle of poverty.
