Golden Landis Von Jones was born in San Francisco, California, to an Ashkenazi Jewish mother, Kimberly Landis, and an African-American, Catholic father. He has a sister named Sage. Both of his parents worked as fashion models before he was born. He was raised celebrating both Christmas and Hanukkah, and attended Hebrew school.As a child, 24kGoldn acted in commercials. He sang in the choir in middle school and high school, and, with that, the importance of music in his life grew with his “own growth”. Before he realized he could do music professionally, he planned on becoming a hedge fund manager. 24kGoldn attended Lowell High School, a selective public high school, where he graduated in 2018.
24kGoldn attended the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business, joking that they accepted him because of a double entendre in “Valentino”, where he joined the Beta-Sigma Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity, as a Spring 2019 initiate. He initially took a leave of absence from school to pursue his rap career. 24kGoldn stated that he was not anticipating “that things were going to happen so fast when I came to USC”, and did not think he would finish University, but he wanted to round off the school year to further develop the relationships he made, stating his love for being on campus, and that being a student kept him “grounded”.
