History and YouTube Career
Ajey was 15-years-old when he first started making YouTube videos. Recording gameplay of games such as CS:GO and uploaded them on his YouTube channel which was called AddictedA1 at the time. He later switched to a commentary style of videos, doing roasts and rants videos in front of a camera when he noticed that his gaming content wasn't gaining that much attention.
Ajey kept making videos of this format, uploading roasts of Indian music videos and rap music by smaller artist whom he calls "bakchod". It was at this time where his channel started to grow since this format was quite new to Indian content on YouTube. Carry was obviously inspired by LeafyIsHere, an American commentary YouTuber who often makes fun of similar types of content featuring gamplay in the background.
He got the name CarryMinati from a running joke about him joining the illuminati. He soon changed his name and even his YouTube logo to fit the theme, with his icon as the illuminati pyramid and adding the illuminati eye at the end of each of his videos. It was at this point in his career that he was gaining subscribers faster than ever, even faster then BB Ki Vines, gaining 100K Subscribers in less than a month.
On May 31, 2016, he uploaded the "ROASTING BB KI VINES" video in which he roasted popular Indian YouTuber Bhuvan Bam and his channel BB Ki Vines. The video soon went viral and Carry's subscriber count grew tremendously. CarryMinati gained over 50,000 subscribers in 2 Years (2014−2016) making him one of the fastest growing channels in his genre in India, currently gaining over 3K subscribers daily.
Carry is also known for making his own rap music videos, often parodic and satirical of the "bakchod" artists he mocks in his content. He once attended YouTube Fan Fest 2017 at Jio Gardens, Mumbai, where he showed great enthusiasm and debuted his performance live. Some of his own music videos include:
- Bantai rap − Balle Balle
- Starboys − The Weeknd
- Bahubali On Cycle (Bahubali Parody)
- Ae Rupali (Success Story Of A Cringe Pop Artist)
- Charas Ganja (Success Story Of A Cringe Pop Artist)
ControversyCarryMinati is a commentary channel that makes fun of other creators, so like many other channels of his kind, Carry started recieving copyright strikes from creators whose videos were roasted by Carry. Receiving three whole strikes from Baap Of Bakchod and Bhim Narula (a Nepali singer) after Carry made fun of his CANCEROUS TABLET.
Carry has also encountered copyright strikes from renowned Indian singer Baba Sehgal and by the YouTube channel "THE NERDY GANGSTERS". Carry has also received threats from content creators he has encountered in the past.
Carry is also well known for being against reaction YouTubers and pranksters. He has made videos on popular reaction channels such as Pardesi Girl and Excited Indian, as well as making videos on prank channels like The Crazy Sumit and a few others. As of January 2017, he does not make videos on channels anymore, but roasts music videos and rap artists.
Ajey has not revealed anything about his girlfriend quite yet, but his fans have always teased him about another YouTuber by the name of Pardesi Girl, since he roasted her "BB Ki Vines reaction" video and accused her of stealing views. It was revealed that they have been messaging privately which lead people to believe that they're dating. Ajey and Falguni (Pardesi Girl's real name) have both denied these accusations.

The Queen of the cringe pop industry, Dhinchak Pooja, created several ear bleedings songs which was later featured in CarryMinati's videos.
