Cole was born in Germany to African-American farther and white mother. The family was temporarily staying in Europe, because that’s where Jermaine’s father had to serve as the solder of the US Army. His parents separated when Cole was still a child and the boy stayed with his mother. They both moved to live in North California with his maternal aunt and cousin. Cole began to rap when he was 12 and by the age 15 he was already pretty sure that he is never going to part with music again.
