Who is Young B? What is net worth of Young B? If you are a fan of American singer-songwriters who also ace in the rapping business, then you must surely know Bianca Dupree. She goes by the stage name Young B and is among the top female rappers in the industry. She has led a very interesting life as she was born in Harlem, New York and her career dipped in the middle but is back on track now with her doing a series on VH1.
Bianca Dupree was born on July 1, 1991, in Harlem, New York and has been in most of the affluent social circles from a very young age. She basically grew up in the Jefferson projects and when she was a teenager she joined the social group, ‘Rich Kids’. She was very popular in her affluent circles and at the mere age of 14, she signed a deal with her manager to sing along with rapper Webstar.
In 2006, she collaborated along with Webstar in his album ‘Caught in the Web’ and came out with the very popular song ‘Chicken Noodle Soup’. This was a turning point in her career and this particular song catapulted her to fame from just another 14 years old to a rapper in the industry.
Career: The manager she signed with to collaborate with Dj Webstar was Arthur Smith and he slowly parted ways with her and refused to give her more collaborations after her superhit single began to lose radio waves. During this time, she released three motivational singles including ‘Airplane Fly’ which did not get as much attention in the industry as her first single. Bianca was not one to be discouraged and immediately started working on her debut album lest she is called a one-hit-wonder. While she was working on her debut album, she and her manager had a disagreement and they parted ways.
In 2007, she wrote and composed another song with inspiration from her original hit song ‘Chicken Noodle Soup’. This turned out to be a big hit in the industry and among her fans. For her 2007 single, Bianca received a Best Dance Cut Soul Train Award which brought her again to the limelight. After 2007 however, her fame began to fade and she would not work as an MC for the next 8-10 years. Over the years, however, she worked on 4 singles from 2007 leading up to 2016 with long gaps in between. She had been touring, performing and writing songs during all this time.
Her most recent job was when she was recruited to play a recurring role on the reality series ‘Love and Hip-Hop: New York’ in the year 2015. Bianca assumed that since her manager and she had parted ways, she was no longer under contract and began looking for a new manager. She found a new manager in Yandy-Smith Harris who was a long time cast member of the Love and Hip Hop show.
