Born on April 16, 1993, in Chicago, Illinois, Bennett developed a passion for rapping at a young age. He began rapping in sixth grade and started gaining recognition in 2013 when he released his second mixtape, Acid Rap.
In May 2016, he released his third mixtape, Coloring Book, which received many positive reviews and won him three Grammy Awards.
