Eric Ghoste, better known as Ghostemane, is a rapper based in Los Angeles, California​. He is originally from West Palm Beach, Florida​. Ghostmane Ghoste's parents were originally from New York, but moved to Florida a year before he was born. Ghoste grew up in the West Palm Beach, Florida area.​ Ghoste played football for a large portion of his youth and held a high GPA in high school.​ His father worked as a Phlebotomist​ and was an influential figure early in his life, instilling values such as responsibility and anti-bigotry in him and his brother.​ He also describes him as a helicopter parent​ who was very controlling of Eric and the rest of his family. Examples includes not being allowed on the internet, being pushed to play football in high school even when Eric no longer had a passion for it, and almost joining the Marines; Ghoste earned a 93 on his ASVAB test in the military. From a back injury, Eric's father relied heavily on opiates which deterred Ghoste from using pills. When Ghoste was 17-years-old, his father passed away which affected him greatly. Although saddened, Ghoste considered this a "freeing" moment from him. It was after his death that Ghoste felt comfortable pursuing music. Ghoste first became interested in the aesthetic of the punk world when he was 12-13 years-old. Some of the bands he would listen to were Lagwagon​, Green Day​, and more. When he was 14-years-old, Ghoste received a guitar for his birthday and his passion for music would grow more and more.​ Due to his lack of internet access, in order to find out about new music, Ghoste would read alternative magazines and ask friends to burn CDs for him of bands he read about. ​ After high school, Ghoste began to be involved in the hardcore scene and would join a band called "nemesis."​ At the same time, he went to college and would Ghostemane work in a call center selling B2B products. to CEOs.​ At one point, he was making $65,000 a year from his day job, but knew the 9-5 work life was not for him. Ghostemane draws his influences from a vast array of content including "Psychedelics, Outkast, Experimental bands, & reading like medieval magic, occultist, or Ancient Egyptian books."​ Ghoste first became interested in occultism through watching Aleister Crowley​ documentaries and reading The Book of the Law​. He eventually got into the works of John Dee​ who became extremely influential for him. A variation of Dee's Monas Hieroglyphica​ is Ghostemane's logo.
