He was the firstborn in the family and was raised surrounded by his brothers, Derrick, Jr., Isaiah, and his sisters, I’lani, Briajanay, and Jayionna. Growing up, Javontae was strong-minded and determined. He enjoyed having his own money and always found ways of making money.

Javontae received his formal education by attending Central High School in Aurora, Colorado. He furthered his education by attending trade school in Watkins, Colorado. He later earned his GED and continued his academics by receiving his Barbers License.
