Born and raised in South Miami, Florida, GhostWridah (born Troy Jeffery) was introduced to Hip-Hop and was inspired to rap by his older brother, Roy Jeffery. 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 rap genre/culture and it's ability to inspire others to want to become somebody. The newcomer to the rap game got his name from the actual word ghostwriter while writing verses for his peers as a high school student. "A friend of mine started to call me ghostwriter because I would write everyone in our circles verses. The name stuck, I just changed the spelling for the sake of being creative," says GhostWridah. Working a 9 to 5 by day and recording by night, GhostWridah became all too familiar with the word “HUSTLE”. At a very young age Ghost witnessed his older brother who, in his eyes was wrongly accused receive a twenty year prison sentence which devastated the young MC. Experiencing a life- changing moment-of-clarity and realizing that he wanted more from his life than bad company in 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 nice car and a few chains. 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 $1,000, and a dream. It was a struggle at first, but he finally landed a few key relationships, hooking up with industry bigs like DJ Green Lantern, who he looked to as a mentor during his stay in NY. After leaning the business side of the industry, and releasing a project "The Ruler's Back" which set him up for his big move, GhostWridah moved back to miami, focused and ready!
