Thompson was born in a small town located on Maryland’s Eastern Shore to Angela Hammond and Marvin Thompson, Sr. (both natives of Federalsburg, MD). He was raised by his mother in Federalsburg, MD, attending Caroline County Public Schools. During his high school years while playing basketball, he earned the name “Swirv” from his teammates for the "illest" spin moves on the court. “CEO” comes from his belief that “Capital Equals Opportunity”. He grew up in a home of love and Christian principles. Thompson has been a lover of music at a young age. At an early age, it was clear to see that Thompson was destined to be an entertainer.
Thompson lived most of his life between Maryland and Delaware where he has gained popularity for his works in music.

Growing up, Thompson’s musical influences were Tupac (who he was a big fan of), Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, NAS, Stack Bundles, Big L, Redman, Method Man, and Wu Tang Clan. Thompson decided that he too would one day be like all he admired as a young boy. Thompson’s truest believer was his mother who recognized his God-given talents and struggled to keep him on the right path while still raising her family. Thompson claimed his blessing and was determined to be successful in the music industry. He hung around and collaborated with well known artists who noticed his talent and encouraged him to pursue his career, but the death of his maternal grandmother, made it seem impossible to take advantage of the connections at the time.
