Early Life

Tyler Gregory Okonma was born in Ladera Heights, California on March 6, 1991. His father is Nigerian, and his mother is white Canadian and Afro-American. Tyler has never seen his father because his father abandoned his mother.

In his hometown, he grew up with his sister, Lynda. He began replacing old album covers with his whimsical albums when he was seven years old. They used to be made up of a list of songs, a title track, and the length of the songs.

By the age of fourteen, he had developed a strong interest in music. He wanted to play a musical instrument, so he taught himself to play the piano and quickly became a skilled pianist.

He was quite athletic as a child. In his teens, he was given a skateboard. He received no training and learned how to use it by watching the video game ‘Pro Skater 4’ and other videos.

He didn’t hang out with the wrong crowd at school. He was quite aloof and shy at first, but as he approached his senior year, he gradually gained popularity. When his classmates discovered his musical abilities, they began to idolize him.

Before launching his music career, he worked for FedEx for two weeks and Starbucks for several years. He eventually quit doing odd jobs and decided to pursue music as a career.

Tyler produced and released his debut mixtape, ‘Bastard,’ in 2009. Despite the fact that he was not promoted by any label, his mixtape was a big hit, ranking 32 on Pitchfork Media’s Top Album list for 2010.
