.Paak's dad attended the Ronald Gratz High School located in Germantown and was part of the gymnastics team.

One of eleven kids, Ronald had a twin brother named Donald. Some days when Ronald didn't feel like going to the job, Donald would gladly go in his stead, and the interesting part is that the owner never noticed.

The twins tried place-swapping multiple times. When Ronald got enlisted in the military in 1968 at just 17, his twin Donald even went to Korea in his stead as a military man.

Ronald met his wife Brenda Bills in 1982 at a nightclub in Oxnard, California.

From there, their relationship started. The couple shared a boy and a girl, with their boy being one of the most famous rappers in the world.

However, the two couldn't stay together for long as she suffered abuse and violence from Ronald as per ESPN.

Brenda married again to Dennis Willingham. Willingham grew up around musicians and introduced .Paak to drums.
