German rap artist Casper, born Benjamin Griffey in the village of Bosingfeld, spent his formative years overseas with his mother in Augusta, Georgia. It was there, amid a fertile, American hard rock, rap, and hip-hop scene, that he began to develop a talent for rhyming. He moved back to Germany as a teen and formed a metalcore band, A Fear Called Treason, before deciding to release a solo mixtape called Die Welt Hört Mich in 2006. His debut album, Hin Zur Sonne, arrived in 2008, followed by XOXO in 2011. ~ James Christopher MongerPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
