Chris Early Years

Rock, who was born on February 7, 1965, in Andrews, South Carolina, was an early member of Generation X. His parents moved to the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, not long after he was born. A few years later, they moved to Bedford–Stuyvesant, a place with a lot of working-class people. Rosalie, his mother, was a teacher and social worker for mentally ill people. Julius Rock, his father, drove a truck and brought newspapers to people. Julius passed away in 1988 after surgery for an abscess.

His parents had seven children, six boys and one girl. Rock was the oldest of them all. He had an older paternal half-brother named Charles Ledell Rock who died in 2006 after being an alcoholic. Rock’s three younger brothers, Tony, Kenny, and Jordan, are also in show business.

The bullying got worse as Rock got bigger, so his parents took him out of James Madison High School. He never went to high school at all, but he did get his General Educational Development (GED) later on. Rock then did different jobs at fast food chains.
