Sherman Martin Austin (born 1984), is an underground rapper and anarchist from Compton, California. He was webmaster of the internet site RaisetheFist.com before his arrest. Austin was convicted under a plea agreement in 2002 and served a one year sentence in federal prison. Some academics and activists, including Zack de la Rocha of Rage Against the Machine, protested the prosecution of Austin.

Austin was released one month early in July 2004 with 3 years of probation which prohibits him from having access to a computer or knowingly associating with individuals who "espouse violence for political change". Following his release from prison, he put out a hip-hop CD, Silence Is Defeat and Silence Is Defeat II in 2007. Many Americans considered Austin a political prisoner. Since his arrest, Austin has become a cause célèbre on the internet for anarchists, with many sites dedicated to "freeing" Austin.
