At the age of seven things started to change for Allen due to the dangerous environment and some of his neighbors in Compton. He, his mother and two older sisters moved into a home in Rialto, California. His Father Ivan Maldonado who is now deceased was a native of Puerto Rico and lived in Harlem, New York. His mother Alleen Hood is African American from Ramen, Alabama but now resides in California. His mother would have him listen to soul and blues music from the south while his father and extended family exposed him to salsa, meringue, and east coast rap.
