He clarified in an interview with DJ Smallz Eyes in 2022 that he preferred to use a stage name over his real denomination. Furthermore, he added that if there are two terms for real name and stage name, then why put the real name as your moniker?

Meaning of PGF and His Inspiration for the Name

The rapper’s stage name is eventually derived from his friend’s called Psycho. Sadly, he passed away in 2017, and then their gang got the name “Psycho Gang Family,” and he used its initials for the first part of his stage name.

Well, the second part of his stage name actually came from his mother. PGF Nuk’s mom gave him the nickname Nuk, and he just stuck with it.

Well, the rapper would always be quiet once his mother gave him a Nuk brand pacifier as a baby.

Furthermore, people often mispronounced and misspelled his stage name.

He also has no intention of incorporating his real name and stage name, despite the fact that many others do.

PGF Nuk Was Raised by a Single Mother

The American rapper was raised by his single mother because his dad was locked up in federal prison when he was 12. He never got a chance to grow up in a two-parent household.

His dad spent eight years in jail, so he took care of his family. Even though he didn’t get an opportunity to grow up with his father, he has a good relationship and respect for him.

The rapper’s dad got out of jail. In his own words, PGF was happy his daddy wasn’t around, as he had a second parent telling him to come home. Plus, he was able to do what he wanted to do.

PGF’s mom and dad never officially got married, and they split up when he was young. But his mom later married his stepdad. In addition, PGF’s mother has eight children, including him, from five different baby daddies. One of his little brothers was born when he was four years old.
