A brash young talent on the rap scene in the Netherlands, Lil' Kleine was born Jorik Scholten in Amsterdam's Nieuwmarkt district on October 15, 1994. At the age of one, Scholten survived a brush with death when he was diagnosed with cancer that required surgery. He would later refer to the incident in his music. Scholten was raised not far from Amsterdam's notorious red-light district. When he was seven, Scholten's parents split up, and he and his father relocated to East Amsterdam. The youngster was photogenic and displayed a precocious talent, and began making the rounds of talent agencies. Scholten made his acting debut in the 2005 film Diep, and was soon showing off his skills in dancing and rapping. Scholten struck up a friendship with Lange Frans of the hip-hop group D-Men in Diemen, and Scholten began performing with the crew on-stage.
