Bubba Sparxxx was born in the rural areas of Georgia, into the family of a bus driver and a grocery store cashier. His first neighbor, an African-American kid who lived half a mile away, was the one who introduce him to rap music, via two Live Crew mixtapes which he got by mail from New York City. Soon after, Bubba Sparxxx started listening to West Coast “gangsta” rap, including OutKast, N.W.A., Eazy-E and Too Short, and began rapping as a hobby at the age of 15.
During high school, Bubba played as a linebacker and the tight end for school’s American Football team, and even won All-Region honors in his senior year. However, he lost interest in sports and turned to rap.
