How DC Young Fly’s Success Journey Began

With details about his parents not found, DC Young Fly grew up with his two brothers at the west side of Atlanta known as Adamsville, where he attended Benjamin E. Mays High School and was known as his class clown. After graduating, he moved to Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus for his college education.

Life on the street was quite an issue for Whitfield and his brother as they often got themselves into fights that almost cost them their lives. Young Fly eventually lost his older brother in 2011 and was stabbed four times by some gang members around their neighborhood. After the horrific incident, he decided to turn a new leaf, focusing more on how to improve his talents. His DC tattoo in his forehead is, according to some sources, in memory of his brother Richie Whitfield. Other sources also claim the “DC,” which stands for “Da Crew” represents his brotherhood.

After a series of failed efforts to secure a meaningful job, Whitfield got his first job at the age of 18, and in 2013, he started Vining. He began to gain popularity and was known for making and posting videos with his catchphrases “Bring dat ass hea boi” and “Fawwwkumean.” One of the videos that brought DC Young Fly to the limelight is the “roasting celeb” videos on Instagram.

The album has ten tracks, including “2 Shots,” “On My Own,” “Whole Life,” “No Weed,” “Got My Back,” and “Take Ya Ass Home.”
