Early lifeEdit

Trymphell was born on April 29, 1979, to Elizabeth Howell-Trymphell and Darren Trymphell I. At the age of three, he almost lost his father, who was involved in an automobile wreck and survived with bruises and cuts[1]. He was raised by parents who believed in strict discipline, and was punished severely for any wrongdoing he committed as a child[2]. Trymphell told his uncle about his parents' strict discipline, and his uncle believed they were being too tough, and Trymphell's parents ended up going to court. In 1989, the Trymphells appeared in court, where a judge ordered that Darren live with his aunt and uncle.
