Lea was born in Cottage Grove, Oregon, on November 9, 1969. He had three other siblings. However, they were all taken to the orphanage when their parents split up. Brad was two years old at the time.
Eventually, his father was able to reclaim them. Brad then lived in a middle-class household. He had seen his father’s industrious side since he had founded a number of businesses.
When Brad was 16, he dropped out of high school. He didn’t have a choice as his father kicked him out. He didn’t get the chance to go to college as he started hustling after that.
