Possessing profound topics and fresh wordplay, GhostWridah successfully demonstrates his underground roots with universal appeal. The 25-year-old lyricist will prove Miami is more than just bass and booty shaking. “My music is a reflection of my experience, not a mimic of a music video” said GhostWridah. “I’m a part of a new breed of Miami MCs.” Born and raised in South Miami, Florida, GhostWridah was introduced to Hip-Hop and inspired to rap by his older brother.
Upon hearing the lyrical mastery of such MCs as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Jay Z, Outkast, and Slick Rick, GhostWridah knew he found his calling. He became mesmerized by the on-going rap battles such as MC Shan vs. KRS1 and Ice Cube vs.
Common Sense and found himself experimenting in the battle competitions. GhostWridah quickly conquered the Miami battle scene and gained the respect of his peers, including fellow Miami native Pitbull. Working a 9 to 5 by day and recording by night, GhostWridah became all too familiar with the “GRIND”. After his brother received a twenty year prison sentence for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, GhostWridah experienced a life-changing moment-of-clarity and realized that he wanted more from his life than the streets or a 9 to 5 at the gap could offer.
“I realized that my drive and hard work in Hip-Hop was based on much more than a Bentley and a chain. It’s based on the amount of people I have depending on me to make something of myself - my brother is one of them.” He looked for an opportunity to clear his head and concluded that the best way to do so would be to take a hiatus from his beloved hometown to focus on the bigger picture. In 2007, GhostWridah moved to New York with nothing but a plan, a dream, his inner drive and personal determination. It was a struggle at first, but he finally landed a ghost writing gig that supported his dream and allowed him to launch his own company - The Good Life Music Group.
Shortly thereafter, GhostWridah signed on with NorthStar Management NYC and created a formidable team to make his mark on the music industry. NorthStar and Good Life wasted no time and immediately collaborated on “The Ruler is Back”, a cutting edge musical production co-starring Paul Wall, Usher & More which incorporates the original soul of R&B and rap into today’s real struggles of a man from nothing striving to succeed at the highest level. “The Ruler is Back” embarks us into a new era of Hip-Hop which focusing on the real person behind the music as opposed to the self-animated gangsta. It was released in November, 2008 and received amazing reviews from some of Hip-Hops biggest sites."This street album is one of the most versatile street albums I have heard in a while truthfully from an up and coming artist." - 24hourhiphop.com “My music is like a story hence the name -The Ruler is Back - inspired by the great story teller himself Slick Rick” said GhostWridah.
“I have to show people where I’m coming from so they understand where I am going” The potent sense of thematic execution comes across perfectly on “50 Ways” featuring Paul Simon. “God is the reason for each and every rhyme I’ve ever written” added GhostWridah. “He is the reason I lived to tell my stories.” Since GhostWridah has relocated to his home town ready to claim is position as one of the best there is in Florida and soon in Hip-Hop. Ghost has also joined forces with up and coming producer Lowkey to give you the new single titled "Weatherman." As he explains on the song "I'm different from these other dudes" you'll soon see why that phrase is more than just a rap line...
It's the God honest truth. GhostWridah has been featured on many successful mixtapes from DJ Ideal “Coming from the Bottom” to “Miami’s Made in Dade mixtape” to Terror Squad Super Producer StreetRunner’s Album “Run The Streets” & collaborations DJ Green Lantern and DJ Smallz in the works.
