Grace Latoya Hamilton grew up in Portmore, Jamaica, and was born in Spanish Town, St. Catherine. When she was nine years old, her father died. She used to go to church on a regular basis as a child and was a member of the choir.
She spent part of her childhood in Finsbury Park, London, with her grandparents, where she also attended school before returning to Jamaica.
She routinely competed in the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC) festival in the music category as a student at St. Catherine High School, winning multiple medals throughout the years. Despite her desire to become a chartered accountant, she chose to pursue a career in music.
She then went on to study music and acting at Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts.
She then began experimenting with dancehall music, and her deejaying abilities at local stage concerts quickly piqued the interest of her village and its environs.
