Family

Parents

The rapper is the son of Jamaican-born William Adams Sr. and African-American Debra (née Cain). He has never met his father, and he was raised by his mother in the Boyle Heights district of Los Angeles’ Estrada Courts housing complexes, where they were among the minority of African-American residents in a largely Hispanic neighborhood.

At age 25, he finally learned his full birth name. His mother pushed him to stand apart from the crowd and steer clear of the neighborhood kids’ proclivities. She enrolled him in public schools in the wealthier West Los Angeles neighborhood in order to direct his musical career.
