After the music video for his song ‘Respect my Cryppin’ was released in 2018, he became a viral meme for his unusual style of rapping. But Hip Hop artist Jonathan Jamal Porter A.K.A., Blueface, has much more up his sleeves than just his music. In a recent show of strength, Blueface left his fans and fitness influencer Bradley Martyn, impressed.

In the Instagram clip, Blueface, in his blue-white outfit, is hanging out with Martyn inside a gym. He proceeds towards a barbell and deadlifts an impressive weight of 300 pounds. Even though the rapper’s body shook while lifting the weight, he completed it without giving up. Martyn, seemingly impressed, just repeated the word, “Wow! Wow!” He also applauded the efforts of the artist.

Martyn posted this on Instagram with the caption, “Testing @bluefasebabyy & @chriseanrockbabyy maxes @zooculture”. Chrisean Rock, a Hip Hop artist, was also present there to support him. About Blueface’s deadlift, she humorously said, “Was shaking it part of it though?” referring to the almost convulsive motion of Blueface’s body while picking such heavy weights.

Blueface hasn’t really said not to challenges in combat sports, either. The 26-year-old rapper previously appeared as an amateur boxer at the BKFC VanZant Vs. Ostovich (Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship) in July 2021. Kane Trujillo, a 21-year-old social media and TikTok star faced and defeated Blueface with a unanimous decision of 3-0.

Prior to the fight, the Hip Hop artist was training vigorously for what was to be his boxing debut with Trujillo. Pro Boxer David Kaminski was training him before his fight on July 23rd, 2021. Although Blueface didn’t emerge victorious in the fight, he hadn’t left any stones unturned in his training.

Nevertheless, Blueface, with his incredible feats of strength and combat sports skills, might still go on to fight many other personalities from different fields. The artist still has a long career ahead of him. Martyn, who otherwise always calls out famous bodybuilding personalities to secretly use steroids, praising the young artist for a change is big in itself.
