Raúl Alejandro Ocasio Ruiz was born on January 10, 1994, in San Juan, Puerto Rico and was raised in Canóvanas and Carolina. His father, guitarist Raúl Ocasio, and his mother, backing vocalist María Nelly Ruiz, introduced him to some of his musical influences like Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, and Chris Brown. For many years, Alejandro and his father lived in the United States, mainly Miami and New York City, where he got inspiration from the R&B and dancehall genres. Alejandro and fellow Puerto Rican rapper Anuel AA are childhood friends; they both went to the same school and had classes together.
As a child, Alejandro competed in school talent shows because he has a passion for dancing. After graduating high school, he enrolled at University of Puerto Rico. From the age of six until he was twenty, he also played association football, but later quit because he “could not perform as he expected to” and suffered an injury at age 20. He moved to Orlando, Florida to attempt to get scouted to play in the Premier Development League (PDL), but eventually was unsuccessful. Despite this, Alejandro still plays and watches football regularly as a hobby, and also said that Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is his favorite player and his idol.
