Lamar was born on October 4, 1989, in Atlanta, Georgia. He developed a love for literature during his time at Ronald McNair Senior High School, where he also played baseball. He eventually earned a scholarship to Fort Valley State University but turned to rap after losing his job at a nearby airport. This led to involvement in illegal activities and a 15-month prison sentence.
