Although one of West Coast rap's leading figures, Tracy Morrow was actually born in Newark, New Jersey. When his parents died in a motor vehicle accident while he was a young child, he went to live with relatives in South Los Angeles' (more often referred to as South Central) Crenshaw district, he quickly became infatuated with the ways of "ghetto street life" and eventually even joined in with one of the many sets of the infamous street gang, the Crips, as an affiliate of the West Side Rollin 30s Original Harlem Crips.
Morrow attended Crenshaw High School, where he would become obsessed with rap, often reciting rhymes for classmates. After leaving high school, he joined the U.S. Army. He has stated he did not enjoy the experience, explaining, "I didn't like total submission to a leader other than myself." [1]
He was previously in a relationship with Darlene Ortiz who was featured on the covers of his early albums. During that relationship that broke up in 2002, they had one child together who goes by the name of Tracy Marrow, Jr. In 2004, he married model Nicole 'Coco' Austin.
