Carter`s childhood is not one described in books; his parents divorced when he was only two years old.

Regarding Carter`s education, after graduation from the Sayre Middle School, Troy attended the West Philadelphia High School. During his high school years, Troy found a rap group, entitled 2 Too Many, and decided to quit further education, in order to pursue a career in music. He soon met up with Will Smith and James Lassiter, which led to a signed contract with their record label WilJam Records. However, Troy`s singing career was cut short, as his group was waived by the record label only one year after they had signed a contract. Nevertheless, Carter stayed with James Lassiter as his personal assistant, and in addition, he collaborated with rap artist DJ Jazzy Jeff. This was a steady if slow start to his net worth.

In 2010, his net worth increased to a large degree when Troy formed another management company, Atom Factory, and soon took numerous notable names of the American music scene under his wing, including Bonnie McKee, Meghan Trainor, Mindless Behavior and many others.
