NBA 3Three was born on April 8, 1998, in Baton Rouge, the capital city of Louisiana. He is the oldest among his siblings. He was primarily raised by his grandparents and had a difficult childhood as he had to put up with issues like racism, crime, and violence. NBA 3Three was never good at academics. He failed to score good grades and hence had to switch from one school to another on a regular basis. He was even involved in a couple of illegal acts, for which he was suspended from school.
The police officers of Baton Rouge made his childhood even more difficult as they often bombarded him with racist comments. The black community in Baton Rouge was stereotyped and hence NBA 3Three had a difficult time growing up in the neighborhood. NBA 3Three found solace through rapping and hence started hanging around with his childhood friends, who too were interested in rapping.
NBA 3Three was inspired by the famous rapper Shy Glizzy. Since Glizzy was often associated with the number ‘three,’ NBA 3Three decided to include the number in his stage name. He is also referred to as ‘NBA OG 3Three.’ He often posts videos and photos on his Instagram account.
