BlocBoy JB: Everything There Is To Know

BlocBoy JB with his signature dance has been able to gather many fans for himself. BlocBoy, who goes by real name James Baker, was born on 19 May 1996. He is a native of Memphis, Tennessee.

Moreover, James is the third-youngest child among his seven siblings. Well, talking about his parents, it has come to light that James's was raised by his mother alone. His father, with whom he shares his name, has been locked up on a 25-year sentence since he remembers.

However, his family bounced around for a while eventually settling in the community of Raleigh when he was 14 years old. Back then James was nicknamed "Fatboy" as he was a chubby kid. But looking at him now it seems like his dance moves do have some contribution in losing all those extra fats.

He is a handsome man now who can attract any woman with his charismatic looks. Going by his twitter post, it seems that currently he is not dating but looking for a girlfriend.

Nevertheless, with his baby boy and search for a girlfriend, he has been able to keep the gay rumors miles away from himself.

However, James who is family guy has been able to rise to the heights of success all by himself. After releasing his video "Shoot"  back in July, he has gained many followers for himself.

He started putting music on his SoundCloud account since 2012. In 2016, he released his first mixtape with tracks that was able to grab views on YouTube. One of his track, "No Chorus Pt." nearly reached 2 million views on YouTube.
