Richard Kenneth Deonta Jones(Lor Richie) was born on the 17th of August 1992, Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Son of Tammy M Thomas(25) And Richard N Jones(31) , Richard spent his early childhood being shoved back and forth from Baltimore and Detroit. He settled on the Westside of baltimore with his Brother (Ervin), and sisters (sandria & mecca) when he was 9 . Switching schools every semester made it difficult to make friends, graduate and to stay out of trouble. Being a rap fan for most of his life, Richard began rapping at the early age of 4. Rhyming words together, battling schoolmates in the lunchroom brought joy to what was otherwise a painful existence.
At the age of 10, he began to get very serious about his rapping but it wasn't until Ervin(17 at the time) and P-fresh(mecca's dad) introduced him to recording.Richard discribes his brother as "an inspiration".
