His real name is Keith Cozart, born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in the Englewood neighborhood on the Southside of Chicago. His mother was sixteen years old when she gave birth to him.

He started his music career as a teen when he was fifteen years old and under house arrest. He began by making YouTube videos and mix tapes. Keith's YouTube videos caught the attention of Kanye West, a prominent figure in the rapping community. With West's help Keith gained a lot of attention and started to become a popular rap artist. Soon after being released from house arrest he signed with a recording studio and was able to create his own label, called "Glory Boyz". In 2012, he came out with his debut album, "Finally Rich," which was a huge hit and involved famous rappers, including 50 cent and Wiz Khalifa.
