Charleston White is an American motivational speaker and owner of “Hyped About H.Y.P.E. - Helping Young People Excel”.
He is famous for speaking up about gang involvement and having a criminal past. His net worth as of 2022 is estimated at $2 million.
Charleston J. White was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. His exact date of birth, the names of his parents, and if he has any siblings remain hidden.
He went to Cook High School in Fort Worth, and according to some sources, he was good at playing football at the time.
Unfortunately, Charleston got involved with bad habits and bad surroundings, so much so that he became a gang leader while he was still a minor.
Reportedly, the reason Charleston had to do time in a state facility for minors was a result of a robbery going wrong.
He and several other gang members planned on robbing a Foot Locker store and wanted to take multiple athletic jackets. According to reports, they got caught by the security guard that was working at the time. The robbery then went south after one of the gang members shot and killed the guard.
All of the involved robbery members were arrested, and since all of them were minors, they all got sent to juvenile detention centers.
During the trials for the robbery and murder, Charleston J. White pleaded guilty on all accounts and labeled himself as a murderer. However, according to reports, he wasn’t the one who pulled the trigger.
As a result of him taking the blame and doing his best to repent for the crime that took place, four correctional facility officers pleaded to a judge on his behalf, resulting in his being let out early. He was released from the facility in 1998 and hasn’t gone back to prison or to the life of crime since. He spent seven years in a correctional facility, and he was let out shortly before h
Since leaving the correctional facility, Charleston has founded an organization dedicated to helping young people excel, regardless of their background.
Charleston White founded the H.Y.P.E. organization soon after being let out of the correctional facility and has since then dedicated his life to spreading awareness regarding gang involvement.
On his LinkedIn profile, Charleston mentioned that many of his friends from the time he was involved with gangs had spent their lives incarcerated from the ages of 14, 15, and 18, up until now, when they’re nearly 50 years old. As a result, he stated that “society writes people off when they’re incarcerated at a young age”.
Since he left the facility, he went back to school, and he’s currently a prelaw student at Texas Wesleyan University. As of today, he has 83 credit hours under his belt toward getting his Bachelor's degree.
In addition, he stated that he considers himself a success story of how someone heavily involved in the world of crime can turn their life around after hitting rock bottom. In his LinkedIn bio, Charleston stated that he hadn’t been back to jail, hasn’t had any felony charges, and is currently leading a happy, family life with his wife and two children.
After being released from the facility, Charleston started leading a new life. He became fairly dedicated to changing his life, that he started collaborating with Texas Police in taking down drug lords and criminal gangs in his hometown, Fort Worth. As a result, he is considered a ‘snitch’ in the Texas community.
In addition, he made several controversial comments after DMX, and George Floyd died. Reportedly, the reformed Charleston claimed that both of these men brought their deaths upon themselves. These comments were deemed inappropriate by everyone, but especially by the members of the Black community. As a result, Charleston deleted all of his social media accounts temporarily until the backlash of his comments came to an end.
In an interview with DJ Vlad, Charleston admitted to being an accomplice to multiple rapes, back in the days when he was still involved in the world of crime.This interview backlashed heavily since he claimed that multiple men would rape the girls that were dating either one of them.
In addition, in September 2022, Charleston shot himself in the leg accidentally, while being in a strip club. This news traveled quickly and was soon turned into gossip that Charleston was shot and killed in a strip club, while other news portals claimed he committed suicide in a strip club. However, the truth surfaced soon that he accidentally shot himself, and there was no dramatic background as the public claimed.
In another interview with SAY CHEESE!, Charleston talked about Soulja Boy, YSL owner - Young Thug, Lil Jay, and Lil Durk.He made several allegations against all of them. Several weeks later, he was spotted in Miami getting into an altercation with Soulja Boy due to the claims he made. Charleston used pepper spray from his wife against Soulja Boy, a move for which he was ridiculed on the Internet a lot.
As a result of the mentioned controversies, a big percentage of the community considers that Charleston has, in fact, committed felonies after being released, contrary to what he claims while promoting his life story.
Charleston White is currently married with two kids. The names of his wife and two children are unknown, as well as when and where they got married.
There is no information available online about his previous dating history.

He made a name for himself by claiming he was able to teach young people how to turn their lives around, similarly to what he did for himself. His net worth as of 2022 is estimated at $2 million.
