Big changes! Before Blac Chyna became Rob Kardashian's pregnant fiancée Angela Kardashian, the 28-year-old was a stripper, video vixen, and rapper's baby mama.
With her ample assets, Chyna was the featured dancer at King of Diamonds Gentleman's Club in Miami, where she reportedly attended culinary school. Drake name-dropped her in his 2010 tune "Miss Me," and Rihanna and Nicki Minaj soon became fans.
Minaj hired the voluptuous D.C. native as her stunt double in Kanye West's 2010 song "Monster"— a year before eventual friend Kim Kardashian started dating the rapper.
Almost famous: In her very first interview in 2011, Chyna told 305Honeys the big-name shoot was "crazy" and "kinda scary."
Along with her video gigs, Chyna began posing nearly naked for men's magazines.

She gave up the pole when she met Tyga at King of Diamonds in 2011. After starring in his hit video "Rack City," the two began a whirlwind romance. The following year, they welcomed son King Cairo.
With her trademark cheek piercings and blond bangs, the star clearly influenced unhinged actress Amanda Bynes' look in early 2013.
