YNW BSlime Family and Personal Life
YNW Bslime was born to Jamie Demons King on April 10, 2007, in Gifford, Florida. However, in 2018, his family relocated to Miami.
He is of African-American descent and has two siblings (one older brother, YNW Melly) and one sister.
A single mom brought him up, and there’s no current information about his father.
Though his brother is widely known, her sister is out of the limelight, and his name remains anonymous.
Before fame, Bradon lived the life of an average kid going to school and playing basketball and video games.
YNW BSlime Career
YNW BSlime is a household name in and out of the teen rap industry. His pure talent for music has won him the recognition he deserves, and he has a massive following on social channels with a dedicated fanbase.
Initially, he wasn’t interested in music, and this saw his older brother, YNW Melly, encourage him to try out rap.
During his middle school vacation in 2018, YNW BSlime visited the New Era Recording studio, and to everyone’s surprise, the young lad’s voice was magical.
That saw him join the YNW recording label, and that’s when he chose his stage name, YNW BSlime.
In early 2019, he released his first tract, ‘Slime Emotions,’ at a Rolling Loud Music Festival, and by November of the same year, his debut mixtape, ‘Baby Goat,‘ was out to the public.
His music started getting massive streams on Spotify, and he did not stop there. In 2020, he released the ‘Singles Freestyle LOL.’
In his music journey, he has collaborated with prominent rappers like his brother YNW Melly, N.L.E Choppa, and Trippe Redd.
He has over 1 million followers on Instagram and the same number of subscribers on YouTube.
Though young, he is just starting, and his bright future is already promising.

At only 16, YNW BSlime has amassed a small fortune, thanks to his masterful lyrics.
Though he isn’t the wealthiest rapper yet, he is climbing the ladder and will reach there someday. He is estimated to be worth $ 300k.
However, due to his young age, his money is saved until he is 18, and all we can do is watch and see how the young superstar will use his money once he is of legal age.
YNW BSlime Brother, YNW Melly
We cannot end our guide without having a quick glimpse of YNW BSlime’s brother, Jamell Maurice Demons, famously known by his stage name, YNW Kelly.
YNW BSlime owns his success due to his elder brother’s influence in the music industry. Melly is known for dominating rap and hip-hop music and hails from Gifford, Florida.
Melly rose to fame in 2018 after his first single release, ‘Murder on My Mind.’ As people put it, it was a trap song exploring homicidal ideation.
In 2019, this hit garnered public attention after he was charged with the first-degree murder of his two fellow upcoming rappers, 21-year-old Anthony Williams and 19-year-old Christopehr Thomas Jr, who were members of the YNW crew. That saw him undergo legal battle and incarceration.
His younger brother, YNW BSlime, is a big advocate of his brother’s innocence, which affects the whole family. And when most people believe he is a murderer, some vote for his innocence. Well, we cannot judge; only God knows if he is.
But where is YNW Melly now? Well, he is in jail awaiting a new trial and will likely face life imprisonment and the death penalty or parole if convicted.
Due to his uncertain future in the rap industry, his music has left a mark and will be remembered for many years.
