Biography And Early Life

Not much is known about Cole’s parents, as his living situation was far from good. In an interview for Complex Magazine,” Cole opened up about his father’s suicide when he was only two years old.

He explained that even though some might consider suicide somewhat selfish, Cole doesn’t feel that way.

He further explains that the family was living in poverty, with no money to feed five people, and having issues with Cole’s mother. Hence, his father actually did the family a favor.

On the other hand, his mom kept the family on its feet by working non-stop for seven days a week. She worked three jobs to give her kids any school supplies they needed, keep them well-clothed, and feed them.

Career

The idea of opening a website was his mom’s idea when she told him she had her website to promote the bar she had at that time.

In 2013, Cole talked to a web designer about making his internet blog, which is how Lyrical Lemonade [1] , a multi-media company, was invented.
