Name: Steven Brathwaite
Hometown: Trinidad (Caribbean Island)
Genre: Hip-HopI am originally from Trinidad & Tobago (Caribbean Island) moved to New Hampshire in 7th grade. I have played the alto saxophone since I was 8 years old. I have been around music my whole life. In Trinidad my uncle was the one who really pushed me into getting into music. And I can’t ever thank him enough for that. In high school all my boys either played basketball or football and they all picked on me cause I was in Jazz Ensemble and didn’t really get into sports. I was more the type to be surrounded by music and not really party that much, much rather chill at home and make beats. I actually started rapping when I was 9 years old. I wrote my first rap and I said it to my mom, and she actually grounded me. She was like, “Get your mind off that rap shit and focus on school work”. I went to Plymouth State University (New Hampshire) the past 3 years, and then got the chance to follow my dream. So I dropped out, and enrolled at New England Institute of Art (Boston, Ma) for Audio Production. Been loving it here and most importantly I can record when I want and not have to wait on anyone which is the best thing.
