On October 20, 1999, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Kentrell Gaulden was born. When Gaulden was a young child, he broke his neck while wrestling, necessitating a head brace while the spine healed. His forehead was permanently scarred by the brace. Gaulden's father received a 55-year prison sentence, so he was primarily raised by his maternal grandmother. He told his mother he was dropping out of ninth grade so he could concentrate on his music career. He was soon arrested for robbery and taken to a detention facility in Tallulah, Louisiana.
