Bobby V was born on February 27, 1980 in Jackson, Mississippi with birth name Robert Wilson. He started building his career in music industry when he was just fourteen. At that time, he joined a musical act Mista, but after the group split in 1997 due to management issues, he enrolled at Clark Atlanta University majoring in Mass Communication and pledged Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. While in school, Bobby continued to record in his free time in hopes of one day returning to the stage.
In the spring of 2002, Bobby auditioned for "American Idol" season one but didn't make it to the next level. Despite his failure in the singing contest, he recorded three demo albums after finishing school. When the demos reached Ludacris, it was then forwarded to Disturbing Tha Peace's president Chaka Zulu. Shortly after signing a deal with the label, he was recruited to be featured in Polow Da Don-produced track "Pimpin' All Over the World", which was taken from Luda's 2004 studio LP "The Red Light District".
