Angela Renée White, popularly known as Blac Chyna is the daughter of Eric Holland and Shalana Hunter. She has six other siblings named Eric, Dejah, Shanel, Summer, Erica, and Pierre.
She attended the Henry E. Lackey High School in Maryland, and then went to Johnsons and Wales University for college. Surprisingly, Chyna used to work as a stripper to support her studies. Later on, she dropped from college as she could not attend her class properly.
Although the artist didn’t pursue her college degree, she still chose to go after what she’s passionate about – makeups. In 2013, Blac graduated from JLS Professional Makeup Artist School.
After quitting the stripper job, Chyna pursued a career in modeling. In 2010, she signed her first-ever deal as a model with Dimepiece Magazine.

In 2011, she was named as the Model of the Year at the Urban Model Awards. She was also the lead artist for Tyga’s song Rack City (which is believed to be the reason why the two have had a romantic relationship).
Blac Chyna made a name for herself for just a short time. In 2012, she was dubbed by XXL Magazine as the Eye Candy of one of their issues. She also posed for Black Men’s Magazine, Urban Ink, and Smooth Girl magazines. In the same year, she yet again created a buzz of her name when she appeared in Nicki Minaj’s song Come on a Cone.
In 2013, the model launched her online boutique and clothing line named 88fin. She also began another business with her brand of adhesive eyelashes called Lashed by Blac Chyna. A year after, she purchased a beauty bar located in Encino, Los Angeles, offering makeup courses.
