These days, we know Blueface as one of the hottest up-and-coming rappers in the game. The young man has plenty of buzz around him, earning enough bread to cop his first-ever million-dollar house this week. Back in the day though, he was just another kid growing up in California, listening to Nicki Minaj on the daily. While you may not have pegged Blueface as the type of dude who dresses up in his finest Nicki merch to join the rest of the Barbs at her concert, it appears as though that’s exactly what he was.

In a resurfaced photo that’s being circulated around the internet, a young Blueface can be seen with two of his friends, getting ready to head into the Nicki Minaj concert. It’s unclear if this photo is legitimate or just really good Photoshop but either way, it’s pretty cool to think that Blueface was once just a fan in the crowd, hoping that he’d get his shot to touch millions of souls. With “Thotiana,” Blueface has earned his first-ever smash hit, performing well on the charts and building his name to a pretty high degree. He’s no longer rocking his Nicki tank top but we’re sure it’s somewhere in his childhood home.

Take a look at the photo below. Do you think it’s real or is somebody fooling us all?
