Tyler Cole was born on July 7, 1998, in Traverse City, Michigan, United States, where he spent his childhood years. He is biracial; his mother is white, while his father is black. Talking to ‘Galore’ magazine, he once revealed that his mixed origin had a significant impact on his psyche. He was raised by a single mother who had studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. At a very young age, he moved to Los Angeles with his mother so that she could pursue a career in acting.

He grew up playing the guitar and often played at shows in Los Angeles with his friends. However, he feels that his biracial origin often prejudices people about the music he makes. He told ‘Alt Philanthropy’ in an interview that people sometimes criticize his eclectic tastes and raps because of the color of his skin, making it harder for him “to be alternative, or to do things that are out of the norm”.
