My Biography For those reading that dont know me, my name is Steven Austin. I was born in the back of an NYC taxi cab ( my mom went into labor unexpectedly ) on October 8Th 1989. Ever since I was a little kid I was undecided about whether to become an actor or a rapper. I was amazed by rappers lifestyle and the flashy music videos with tons of half naked women running around. They seemed to have it all. At the tender age of only 6 I was leaning towards becoming an actor only because I was very young and had a very limited vocabulary which made rapping very difficult. But as time passed, I grew up and started to become a more talented lyricist. In 6th grade I meet a boy from harlem who also wanted to become a rapper just as I did. I started rapping with him after school in my school cafetiria. He was better then me, so I found my self learning from listening to him rap and the way he worked a crowd. After some time I stepped out and became less shy, rapping in front of larger crowds during lunch who were eager to see the best rappers in the school battle out. After the end of 6th grade me and my friend decided it was time to step up and make our own albums. I bought some equipment with money I had saved up and got some old equipment from my uncle and set it up in my room. Everyday I would record to gain studio experience, and my friend would teach me some things he had learned. I knew how to rhyme to a beat, but I wasn't really used to rhyming in a rhythm and pocket and chorus. My friend taught me a lot about riding different beats and different grooves. I was used to riding a basic knock or simple drum tracks. He taught me how to use different flows on various tracks; like bouncy beats, hard-edged beats, beats that include more horns or keyboards than say a guitar or drum. He helped refine the way I hear music, in order to record songs differently. I'm a lyricist, so that helped me with flows and coming up with hooks for the different types of songs. It wasn't hard at all, but it was an adjustment. I also learned to understand the need for stories and how to write them to music. I can bring more emotion across when I'm telling stories - but it's all in the wording. For instance, when you are in 6th grade and the teacher asks you to read a story, you just read the words. Later as your skills improve you understand the emotion and punctuation and begin reading the story like it should be told. The delivery, the expression, enunciation and emphasis on words make it clear what the situation is with the characters or plot twists. so now at 14 I continue to push myself and my goal of becoming a rapper more serious. EDIT : since everyone is crying because I supposedly did the task wrong I will add this : If me as I child met me now it would be a boring meeting since I feel the same way now as I did 8 years ago. me at age 6 : " I want to be a rapper when I grow up " me now : " I want to be a rapper when I grow up " there we go the task is no longer " incorrect " .
