He has had many controversies due to his YouTube diss tracks, and has been criticized for embarrassing a rape victim for views, among other things. RiceGum grew to fame from his "These Kids Must Be Stopped" series,inwhich he criticised kids "who must be stopped" on the app Musical.ly, which received growth from that video.
Now residing in Los Angles in the FaZe house (known as the Clout House), RiceGum continues to enjoy popularity through his channel that consists primarily of satirical skits and vlogs, often using girls like Sommer Ray along with fake drama.

Before reaching 8 million subscribers on his YouTube channel, RiceGum claimed to have turned down a Harvard Scholarship on his Twitter account so he could continue his YouTube Channel. RiceGum currently resides in Hollywood Hills with Alissa Violet, FaZe Banks, Sommer Ray and is Friends with the FaZe Clan, which Include FaZe Adapt, FaZe Rug, FaZe Nikan, and more.
RiceGum started out as a Gaming YouTuber, often recording himself playing Call of Duty. His first video was uploaded on October 2, 2012, and in this video, he talks about himself while playing Modern Warfare 3. RiceGum amassed over 1.5 million views and 180,000 subscribers during his early stint as a COD Twitch streamer. He later on in 2014 moved to Major League Gaming streaming, where he had around 30,000 followers.
On December 8, 2015, RiceGum made his comeback to YouTube through his "These Kids Must Be Stopped" series, gaining millions of views and subscribers. Throughout the series, RiceGum rants and criticises about four kids from the app musical.ly. These kids include Jacob Sartourius (HipLikeJacob), Loren Beach, Bark Thomas (duhitzmark), and Trey Sartorius (TreySartorius).
Bryan is known for making YouTuber diss tracks and vevo thumbnails popular, in the process, garnering popularity more quickly than his other videos.
Ricegum was popular due to his many diss tracks throughout 2016, then stopped, rose a bit due to Gabbie Show (Gabbie Hanna) drama, then got another big hit with his "every night sis" diss track. After forming Clout gang, he stayed on a steady path.
The YouTuber iDubbbzTV made an episode of his popular "Content Cop" series on RiceGum, signaling to a wide demographic that RiceGum's YouTube career is in "grave danger." The Content Cop video received over 40 million views and over 2 million likes and was the most trending video in multiple countries, making it the fastest growing "content cop" video and one of the most widespread videos in current times.The video was titled as if it was about Jake Paul.
RiceGum, as a result of the content cop video, lost 50,000 subscribers initially. However, despite the Content Cop series' pervious casualties, RiceGum survived the Content Cop and returned to normal subscriber growth. However, Idubbbz fans are still bombarding his videos with hate comments and dislikes. Ricegum also uploaded less consistently as well as not growing quickly anymore.
On December 31, 2018, RiceGum uploaded a video called How I got Airpods for $4 in which he uses a website that sponsored him. What the website did was that you paid money for a chance at getting one of various items, ranging from stickers to expensive cars. He earned a lot of expensive items in the video.
A lot of YouTube criticized RiceGum for this, saying that he was willfully promoting a gambling website to children. He responded to the criticism in a video called This Dude Calls me out for Mystery Unboxing. The criticism was mainly from h3h3 and PewDiePie. He talked about other YouTubers doing the same thing and not being criticized for it, only becomig an issue when him and Jake Paul (who also promoted the site) did it. At the end of the video he said that the damage was already done,and put amazon giftcard codes on screen. They were later discovered to have been redeemed months prior to the controversy.
H3h3 made a response to RiceGum called RiceGum Is Caught Snitching (Mystery Box Part 2) in which he makes fun of RiceGum, calling him a snitch and criticizing him for giving the amazon giftcard codes instead of an actual apology. Ricegum uploaded another video called This YouTuber is Lying To You (H3H3) where he compares his situation to the Betterhelp controversy, in which many YouTubers promoted a website which turned out to have some sketchy terms of service. He also talks about H3h3's depression and says that it's probably because of his "boring" wife.
The last response video made was by H3h3, in which he talks about many 3 subjects, one of them being the controversy. In the video (RiceGum Digs A Hole And Jumps In It) he "disses" RiceGum in a short song, in which it's clear he's not taking him seriously. RiceGum didn't respond,and everyone involved moved on.

- "It's EveryNight Sis" in which he collaborates with Alissa Violet. The video itself has amassed over 100 million views.
