Coi Leray has five brothers, including Chavo, Kwame, Taj Raymond, Zino Antonio, and one other brother whose identity is unknown. Coi Leray is her parents’ first and only daughter, meaning that she has no sisters.
Since making her musical debut on YouTube at the age of 14 with the songs Bow Down and Rock Back, Coi Leray has gone on to establish herself as a talented singer and rapper with one studio album, one EP, 47 singles, and 2 mixtapes, all as of early 2023. Being the only female child of a family that has five male children must have made growing up very interesting. This has also made the prospect of getting to know those male siblings even more interesting.
Coi Leray Has Five Siblings
Born Brittany Collins on May 11, 1997, the 26-year-old Coi Leray is one of six children born to American TV personality, media proprietor, rapper, and record producer Benzino (real name: Raymond Leon Scott). Although, at this point, it is important to reveal the fact that the rapper had some of his children with different women other than Leray’s mother.
The aforementioned fact notwithstanding, Coi Leray has five siblings, some of whom are her half-siblings. It is also quite relevant to reveal the fact that all of the Huddy singer’s siblings are male, a fact that suggests that she is the only female child of her parents.
Coi Leray’s musical career took off when she was just a teenager, and during her breakthrough years, she shared the stage with one of her brothers. Though not as popular as she is these days, Leray’s brothers have been mentioned in several of her interviews, and are leading relatively fulfilling lives of their own.
Meet Coi Leray’s Brothers
For the sake of our readers, it’s only right for us to discuss in detail the identity of Coi’s brotherss, regardless of how limited information about them is.
1. Taj Raymond Collins Is Coi Leray’s Immediate Younger Brother
- Date of birth: January 8, 2003
- Age: 20 years old
- Occupation: Athlete, Musician
Taj Raymond Collins is Coi Leray’s immediate younger brother. He was born on January 8, 2003, in Boston, Massachusetts, United States. His birth sign is Capricorn, while the fact that he was born in the United States confirms his status as an American citizen. Taj and Coi reportedly share the same father, rapper, and media proprietor, Benzino.
His ethnic identity is Cape Verdean-Afro-Puerto Rican, which he identifies with through his father. Several as yet unverified sources confirm that Coi Leray’s mother is Taj’s biological mother as well. If those reports are anything to go by then it’s safe to say that Taj’s parents are no longer together as a couple.
Taj Raymond is less than six years younger than his older sister, Coi, but their age gap has not proven to be a barrier to the quality of relationship they have had over the years. Before we explore the said relationship, it is vital to point out that details of 20-year-old Taj’s formal educational background have yet to become public knowledge.
Taj Raymond Collins Is In The Music Business
Starting young seems to be a character trait Taj Raymond gleaned from his older sister, Coi Leray. Recall that the singer started her music career at the age of 14 in 2011. Nonetheless, it is even more impressive that Taj followed in his father and sister’s footsteps at an even early age.
He was only about eight years old when he collaborated with Coi Leray to drop their first singles together Bow Down and Rock Back on YouTube. After his involvement during the early years, Taj briefly stepped away from the musical stage and turned his attention to other interests. To be more specific, his Twitter page, at one point indicated that he was now an aspiring sportsman.
However, he has since resurrected his passion for music and released the video to his track Dead Silence, from his EP Insanity in late 2022.
He Has A Good Relationship With His Sister
Nicknamed Tank, Taj Raymond Collins has a very good relationship with his older sister, and their fondness for each other commenced way before they even recorded two songs together.
Their closeness was evidenced in their effortless synergy when they worked together to release their first two songs. Taj Collins’ relationship status is unknown at present due to his preference for keeping his private live away from the public.
2. Chavo Is One of Coi Leray’s Brothers
- Date of birth: 1990s
- Age: 33 years old
- Occupation: Rapper
Chavo, whose real name remains a mystery to his adoring fans, keeps a lot of details of his personal life away from the media and the public, and this has also led to limited information regarding his date of birth. Nevertheless, the young musician has the looks of someone who was born sometime in the 1990s.
Besides the fact that they share the same biological father- Benzino, we have no way of knowing who the older sibling is between Chavo and Coi Leray. Chavo was also born in Boston, Massachusetts, United States, and is an American citizen by birth.
Several sources have uncovered the fact that he spent most of his formative years in Boston, but very few people know the extent of the formal education he has to date.
Chavo’s Musical Career Is Not As Advanced As Coi Leray’s
Coi Leray’s meteoric rise as a hip-hop star has left no doubt in the minds of several observers that she is Benzino’s most successful progeny in the music business. However, the fact remains that Chavo is not far off in that regard.
His musical abilities were honed while he was growing up in a musical household, and it would seem that those abilities were recognized quite early too. While waxing lyrical about his children’s musical achievements, Benzino claimed that Chavo had a record deal with Interscope Record when he was just nine years old.
The truth behind those claims have yet to be verified but it confirms the very real possibility that Chavo started his musical career at a very young age. As previously stated, Chavo’s musical career pales in comparison to that of his only female sibling, but the singer has proven that he can hold his own, to a very significant extent, in the music industry.
Currently signed to rapper/producer Pierre Bourne’s Sosshouse Label along with artists like Sharc, Chavo released the single Michigan in early 2020. Significant evidence points to the fact that the song was a hit because the reaction to that piece of musical creation was nothing short of impressive, particularly in gaining more than 10 million streams on Spotify alone.
Chavo also seems to know how to leverage personal relationships to advance his career as a musician. To find evidence of this, one would have to look no further than his present association with Sosshouse Label chief, Bourne, who he has known since they first met in 2015 when the former was a studio engineer.
The bond they developed all those years ago was instrumental in helping Chavo create Michigan, a piece of musical art that has since become his calling card.
Chavo’s Relationship With Coi Leray Is Equally Inspiring
Undoubtedly, still the underdog between the hip-hop power siblings, Chavo, and his sister, Coi Leray have never allowed ambition or the fact that the latter has had to deal with the struggles of being in a male-dominated industry to come between them as siblings.
Distance is another bridge they have successfully navigated on their journey to enjoying a wholesome relationship as siblings. Chavo is primarily based in Atlanta while Coi Leray made a name for herself in Chicago. Nevertheless, the siblings still find a way to meet once in a while to fan the flames of the family bond that unites both of them.
They have been able to bridge the distance created by having careers in different parts of the country by coming together to work on musical projects. Coi Leray was featured in Chavo’s single American Deli in the fall of 2020 while the rapper was also significantly featured in some of the songs on his sister’s sole album to date.
Details of Chavo’s personal life are unknown at the moment, a fact that has made it quite challenging to determine whether he is in a romantic relationship or not.
3. Kwame Scott Was Born A Few Years Before Coi Leray
Kwame Scott is one of Coi Leray’s lesser-known siblings for a variety of reasons. Before we get into those reasons though, it is important to point out the fact that despite not being exactly certain about his date and place of birth, several sources have confirmed that he is a few years older than the rapper, although we have yet to ascertain by how much.
Being a son to Benzino and a sister to Coi Leray gives Kwame the genetic backing to qualify as a United States citizen. Owing to the fact that he does not receive any attention from the media, we cannot tell if Coi’s birth mother, whose identity remains unknown, is also his birth mother.
Kwame Scott Spent Some Time In Prison
In August 2020, Coi Leray let the media and the world in on the fact that her brother had spent some time in jail. She didn’t exactly go about giving interviews about it, as that would have been immature, rather she did that by welcoming him back to the world via her social media platforms.
It is yet unclear the crime Kwame committed that warranted him spending an unspecified amount of time in jail, but Coi showed her devotion to her brother by celebrating his return to normal society.
There is not much in the way of knowing how close the siblings are, but judging by her post announcing his return to society from prison and the way she behaves towards her other siblings, it’s kind of hard envisioning the No Longer Mine crooner not having a more than cordial relationship with her older brother who was denied of family companionship throughout the time he spent in prison.
Similar to almost all other aspects of his existence, Kwame Scott’s current source of income is unknown, and that dearth of knowledge extends to his romantic relationships.
4. Zino Anthony Scott Is Coi Leray’s Youngest Sibling
- Date of birth: November 10, 2015
- Age: 7 years old
- Occupation: Student
Coi Leray’s youngest brother, Zino Anthony Scott, was born on November 10, 2015, in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. While the rapper and his youngest sibling share the same father in record producer Benzino, they have different mothers.
We have established the fact that Coi Leray’s mother is an unknown former bartender who has lived most of her life away from the view of the public, Zino’s mother, Althea Heart, on the other hand, is a well-known reality TV star best known for her participation in the VH1 reality TV series Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.
Other than her commitments to reality television, Zino’s mother is also a real estate investor with a booming real estate career. Prior to her thriving real estate career, she briefly had a music career that saw her release a single called Ghetto Love in 2013. She then recorded an album after signing a developmental deal with Def Jam Records, but the album was never released.7-year-old Zino Scott is 18 years younger than his older sister, Coi Leray. Despite having different mothers, the rapper has shown severally that she doesn’t love her baby brother any less.
Not much is known about Zino Anthony at the moment but several sources have confirmed the fact that his parents started dating during the 3rd season of Love & Hip Hop while they were both stars on the series. They were even engaged but broke off their engagement shortly after he was born.
They then reappeared together during the 6th season of the show Marriage Boot Camp to analyze the details of their broken relationship. Considering his present age, one would assume that Coi Leray’s youngest sibling is still entering the early years of his middle school years.
The Identity Of One Of Coi Leray’s Brothers Is Unknown
At the beginning of this article, we confirmed the fact that Coi Leray has five brothers. Nevertheless, it would seem that one of her five brothers wants nothing to do with the spotlight. As such, there is very little information available on him including, any about his identity, where he is at the moment, and what he does for a living.
