Jermaine Dion Hawkins also known as "Busta Brown" was Born November 7th and raised in Miami, FL with two brothers, three sisters and one mother. Busta's Dad Jerry Lee Hawkins Sr. died late October 1987 of the sexually transmitted disease known as HIV, when he was at the age (3) three. Being left fatherless and only his siblings and peers to look for direction with life, he began to find a path with music and entertaining even in the rough neighborhood. Busta first started watching Casey Kasem, who was the host for the 80's music show "AMERICA'S TOP 10" and television legend Don Cornelius who was the host of "SOUL TRAIN". These two guys didn't make music, but they knew a lot about it, which made Busta want to know more about music. The two shows came on every saturday morning and busta usually watched the shows with his older sister Taneka, who inspired him to dance as she did. Busta soon began to favor Recording Artists such as Michael Jackson, Big Daddy Kane, Rob Base & Dj E Z Rock, Kool Moe D, Doug E Fresh & Slick Rick and everybody's favorite Kid N Play. Being intrigued by these stars He later began practicing what he saw every saturday on tv which led him to start performing at the age (8) eight with a church group in liberty city called youth in action. After receiving big shouts and heavy applause from the crowds at church him and his group of young stars performed for Busta wanted to venture outside of the church life and see what the new world of hip hop was really all about. The early 90's began to come about which meant change everywhere including the music that Busta listened to. There was a group of nine guys out of New York that called themselves the "Wu Tang Clan", this group of poetic artist grasped Busta music interest not with the music they made but how they made it and presented it with style & real life situations. Busta began to carry a walkman everywhere with him which was known as a cassette player at the time and valued friendship to anyone who
listened to music. One friend who Busta became close with was child hood friend Karega Tucker also known as "Chewy". Chewy was from Brooklyn, NY and shared the same interest for the Hip hop group "Wu Tang Clan", but being from brooklyn Busta's good friend introduced him to a new local Rapper by the name of Jay Z who rapped alongside of the great Notorious Big and thats when Busta wrote his first rhyme. by the 7th grade Busta started rapping and went by the name "Kid Infamous", always involved in sports such as football and track & field, Busta wasn't able to play these sports the organized way due to many reason either his mom didn't have the money for him to participate or he was just to small. The year was 1998 and it was Christmas Busta didn't expect much for the holidays , but was surprised when his mom got him a karaoke machine. Not only did it boost Busta 's Motivation but it let him know that his mom was paying attention to the creativity he was trying to cook up. As Time passed so did Busta's urge to make music, He started highschool and finally started playing sports. Though never leaving the world of music, and taking the role as a athlete Busta still stayed close to early morning cyphers that took place in the morning on the basketball court or in the lunch spill out during lunch time. Others new he played sports and a lot new him for his mannish lyrical mouth which made others amused and asked Busta to ghost write for them which landed him in a cypher with Ruff Ryders "JIN" who told the young star he should be making hits instead of touchdowns. 2002 Busta was Awarded a Scholarship to play college football his senior year of high school, but due tolow HSCT scores his scholarship was revoked. Busta later moved Back home in November
2002 after an upsetting football dream disaster, early 2003 received his G.E.D. at Lindsay Hopkins Tech. Pursuing with life 2004 Busta began to move back to the entertainment world and took His position as a Recording Artist were he started his very own record label FLY BOY MUSC GROUP™. Taking a new scholarship offer by the University of Florida for Track & Field, Busta later told his track coach and other family members that he'd be putting sports down and picking music up. A lot disagreed , but his thought was music wont let me down like football and track.
