Bryan Quang Le was born in November 1996 in Las Vegas, Nevada. During the beginning years of his rise to fame, he lived at home with his parents and created content in his bedroom.
For most of his childhood, Bryan lived a reasonably normal life out in Nevada. Through middle school and high school, Bryan began to play many videogames. He became exceptionally good at playing games in the Call of Duty franchise.
Before he became the YouTube star that he is today, RiceGum, who formerly was called RiceFlavoredGum, streamed some gameplay of his first-person shooter skills on Twitch.
RiceGum shares popular stories that his mother wanted him to be a doctor and that Harvard offered him a scholarship, but he turned it down to pursue his love for making YouTube content.
The Rise of RiceGum on YouTube
After his success live-streaming Call of Duty gameplay, RiceGum generated a large following that followed him to YouTube when he created his account in October 2012. While his fans followed him for his gaming skills, when RiceGum began to create content on YouTube, it was not related to gaming.
His reaction videos of smaller YouTube creators doing outrageous actions brought RiceGum a lot of fame. As YouTube grew more popular, commentary and reaction channels took the platform by storm, and RiceGum joined in.
Along with the reaction videos, RiceGum started creating videos of him doing comedic pranks and stunts, one of the most popular was when he mailed himself in a box.
But he did not stray from his gaming roots. When the rise of Fortnite’s popularity took the gaming world by storm, RiceGum made many videos about Fortnite gameplay.
RiceGum then branched out his video style to produce various videos of him starting drama and feuds with other creators. Often times responding to videos of other creators criticizing him. RiceGum then argues back in many of his roast videos where he criticizes those creators.
His success on YouTube had a considerable jump when he began to take those roast videos and turn them into diss tracks. The music videos he created often had to do with the drama created between him and other YouTubers, and it was a new way for him to embarrass the other person.
His music videos for Its EveryNight Sis and God Church have become two of his most popular videos with a combined 260 million views. His diss tracks towards other YouTubers such as TheGabbieShow and Jake Paul also have a large viewership due to the publicity of the drama between these YouTube Stars.
With this aggressive and high production value-form of creating drama and creating content, RiceGum has faced a lot of criticism from other YouTubers. While there is some bad blood between RiceGum and some of his peers, RiceGum still holds a spot as one of the most popular YouTubers with over 10.5 million subscribers.
