At the tender age of eighteen months, he was adopted and raised by his uncle and aunt, Fred Sr. and Patricia George in Chicago, Illinois. DeVante grew up in a God-fearing household and was taught to grow in reverence for God.  e family stressed the importance of getting a good education. He was educated in the Chicago Public School system, graduating from William Penn Elementary School in 2017, and received his 8th grade diploma. His love for the arts came as a result of attending Little Village’s Multicultural Arts High School. When he graduated in 2022 with his high school diploma, he wanted to do more with his new discovery. He started with amateur photography, taking pictures of family and of nature. He later experimented with music, creating his own rhymes. Eventually, he  lmed videos and posted on the latest social media platforms. He held various labor jobs. However, the opportunity to have a more stable line of work came when he became involved with mentoring programs, such as UCan and Boys’ Brotherhood Republic (BBR).  ese organizations, in their respective roles, help prepare youth for life, teaching leadership skills.
