Jeremie was born in Canton,Ohio to Antionette Brown Austin. He has 2 siblings on his moms side, Brian Brown Austin and Mawanna Washington. When they were younger they were all placed in a foster home with their uncle. Here, Jeremie grew passionate about reading, writing, and music. He asked for a boom box every year and would tape the local radio stations to learn his favorite songs. His cousin/brother Marcus Austin prompted him to write his feelings down as raps. From about 4th grade on Jeremie was writing poems. At 17 he wrote a song expressing his desire to know all of his family and about his foster care experiences. From that song he flew to Hawaii to advocate for other foster youth.Now 27 and a solo artist he plans to bring Hip- Hop back to its more potent form of storytelling.
