“Y.Teezy (Y Dot Teezy)”, was born Quintin Talbert on March 27, 1993 in Brooklyn, New York. Music played a very big part in his earlier years as his belizean father, Claude Talbert, raised him around hardcore hip hop music as well as reggae, and his belizean mother, Antoinette Reneau, raised him around various types of music in general, with her dreams of being a ballet dancer. His parents would throw block parties and play music around the house constantly, to the point where he would end up absorbing the music, building his ear for sounds that would eventually help his talent. At the age of 9, he relocated to Atlanta, Georgia, the mecha of Southern Hip Hop, where he would soon develop a talent for music. Years Later, he started writing full songs at 12, and then started recording at 14.
