Give us your bio, Who are your top 5 influences, When are your new projects coming out?What helped you get into music? What is one thing you would tell your fans? What are your biggest goals for 2016?
Well my name is Austin White, and I’m 20 years old from MAPSO (Maplewood/South Orange) New Jersey. I’m also a division 1 basketball player at High Point University in NC. I’ve been making music for about 3 months. Idk if I have to go into family haha but I have a younger brother and parents as well.
My top 5 influences are Logic, J. Cole, Big Sean, Drake, and Kendrick Lamar. I like the old school hip hop artists as well but it’s not what I’m primarily influenced by.
I have a mixtape coming out August 17, executively produced by my good friend Tommy Papas (producer name is Terranova).
I was influenced in getting into music by my friends and my girlfriend actually. I rapped in high school for a year or so, but it was just as a hobby and I wasn’t nearly as good haha, so I put it on the backburners, but when my boys brought it up to me I laid a track down and it was good so I ran with it. My girl has my back 100% too and I went for it and it’s paying off so far, so I’m happy about it.
One thing I would tell my fans is to trust the process. It’s a journey to the top, and with their support and the continuous production of quality music, we’re all gonna make it. Anyone who messes with my music is family, so we’re all gonna make it.
my biggest goal for 2016 is to just create a bigger brand for myself. I’ve gotten all positive reviews so far, and I know that the more I make, the harder I work, the more successful I’ll be. A year from now, people are really going to know who 8th Wonder is, way more than they do now.
