He speaks English. He grew up in Virginia, USA. His family’s still there and keeps in touch with him through Skype. He has an older brother. Bobby spent a lot of time in church and was part of the worship ministry; that’s where he learned to play the guitar, drums, and piano.
He joined YG in early 2011 in New York. He was a part of Team B on “WIN.” He was in Hi Suhyun’s music video for “I’m Different” and Taeyang’s music video for “Ringa Linga.” He collaborated with B.I. and Winner’s Mino for Epik High’s “Born Hater.” He won the third season of “Show Me the Money.”
After “WIN” ended, YG sent him on a flight to the USA because he hadn’t seen his family in four years.
Bobby loves to play basketball.
