Fike was born on December 30, 1995, in Naples, Florida. He is the third child of five children with three brothers and a sister. Dominic Fike did not have the most ideal childhood as his parents were largely absent from his life. His mother was constantly in jail and as a single parent, she had to juggle her time in prison with the absence of her children’s father.  

His interest in music started to manifest by the time he was 10 years old. Fike had gotten a guitar and started to teach himself how to play it and make songs. His first songs were made while he was still a student at Naples High School. As a child, he would spend time with one of his older brothers at a place called Backhouse which was where most of the parties in the neighbourhood happened. But as time went by his time at Backhouse led to the cultivation of his musical talents.

By the time he was 21, he had started to work on creating music and put it in a collection. But this was affected by him going to jail for battering a police officer.
