Born in London, raised in Bristol, Young Gho$t (Casper de Wit) moved to Auckland aged 14, and picked up the mic aged 16. Uncompromising in his approach, with a style that fuses the street sounds of New Zealand and the United Kingdom, he has been steadily making a name for himself all over the country with his blistering live shows and radio performances. Since mastering the skill of rapping, he has turned his hand to DJ'ing and music production, which he is studying at the moment. He also dabbles in event promotion, and has started his own company for this, Ghost Media.
Young Gho$t says his biggest influences are Memphis phonk, UK grime, marijuana and the world around him. He has released 2 full length albums and a couple of EPs, with a follow up to March 2019's 'Session Muzik' expected before the end of the year.
