Whiteside

Whiteside

* Growing up in the late 80s and 90s Whiteside's love of music and poetry was sparked by listening to reords with his mother. After learning how to use ryming patterns from poetry he would eventually learn how to freestlye at school during any passing period, lunch, and even getting kicked out of class for rapping. His dream was always to entertain and unite people through his music. With his passion, lyricsicm, and raw emotion he's well on the way to achieving his dream and much more!

He was born in Midland, Tx in 1985. But shortly after Whiteside would move with his mother and become an official Ausinite in 1989. Always a great student he would finish his work early and start disrupting class either being a class clown or rapping. But being an only child raised by a single mother he would eventually become a victim of fast money, fashion, and the exotic women of the street life. Life started to make a turn for the better though after dropping back to back mixtapes with all frestyles. Then tragedy struck.
Due to run-ins with law enforcement, becoming a father, and juggling life in the streets it would be years before Whiteside would get back to recording.
