YouTube and Vine Celebrity Roaster, DC Young Fly
John Whitfield, better known as DC Young Fly, is a rapper, comedian, and actor. He was raised in the westside of Atlanta, GA and was heavily involved in the streets. He once got stabbed in a fight that almost cost him his life. As a result, he left his life on the streets and began his career in comedy. Before his fame, DC had a difficult time finding jobs because of the tattoos on his face. After searching for years, he got his first job at a temporary service at the age of 18.
DC is famous for his celebrity roasts on YouTube and Vine. He started Vining back in 2013 when the app was first released. He uses his catch phrases “Bring dat ass hea boi” and “Fawwwkumean” in almost all his roasts. He has roasted several celebrities like Kevin Hart, Lebron James, Drake, and Meek Mill. In 2014, DC got into a social media feud with Kevin Hart because of this. Hart responded by roasting him back but DC took no offense to it. This viral feud was one of the factors that helped DC rise to fame. Since then, he became a cast member on MTV’s Wild ‘N Out for Season 7 and 8. He is also in a new movie called Almost Christmas, which is a comedy about a dysfunctional family gathering on Christmas. DC has really turned his life around and is an inspiration to anyone who is currently involved in the streets and wants a better life for themselves.
Many of you are probably wondering about the meaning behind the tattoo on the middle of his forehead. He got the tattoo in memory of his brother Richie who passed away in 2010. The “DC” stands for “Da Crew” which represents his brotherhood. Everyone else in his crew has the same tattoo but in different locations. The reason why his tattoo is placed on the middle of his forehead is so that when people see him, they know what he stands for. When people look at him, they probably look at his tattoo first before they look at his eyes. It is there for that purpose so that people can see it and know what he represents.
