Andre was Minnesota born and raised by a single mom with two younger siblings. A traumatic back injury from football at 17 caused him to focus on music, leading to his first live performance as an opener for Waka Flaka Flame at the University of Minnesota for an audience of 3K+ fans.
At 21, Andre was cast on MTV’s reality show ‘Are You The One’ season 5, and was the first Minnesotan to be cast on the series. Following his sudden IG notoriety, Andre relocated to LA to pursue his music more seriously, but never forgot his MN roots. His management and press teams are from Minnesota as well.
