Billionaire Black celebrates his birthday on October 13. The brand new trip artist enjoys an immense cult following and is one of the most successful rappers from the south right now. Black debuted in 2015 alongside FBG Duck, and they had a couple of collaborations before the latter’s untimely death. Black lost his brother Richie Jerk of Tyquan World in 2020. The death of his close circle emboldened the rapper to take risks and expand his portfolio.

October 13, 1993
Chicago-based rapper Latice Delphie, more popularly known as Billionaire Black, was born on October 13, 1993. He grew up on the south side of Chicago and spent a lot of time in the rapper enclave of the city. He spent his adolescent years doing odd jobs and engaging with local musicians and briefly joined the rap group Buck 20 Brick Boyz. At 21, he released his debut album. Nearly a decade into his career, he has a dozen albums under his belt, which include the hit record ‘Clout God.’
Before he became viral on social media, Black was a member of the rap group Buck 20 Brick Boyz. Black made a mark in the industry with his single ‘No Action’ featuring FBG Duck and ‘Play Around’ featuring Lil Jay and P. Rico.
