Bastien was born in Marietta, GA as Augustine S. Tailey Jr. Between then and his fifth grade year he moved all around Georgia and after that started travelling around the world. From Nepal to Namibia then to Nigeria and right back to GA to start college at Savannah State University. Growing up he watched his older cousins, underground rappers, J-Meezy and Smurf Dollaz as they pursued their dreams of being a rapper. He always wanted to be a rapper but never really started until he moved to Namibia. Between there and Nigeria he grew better, knowing for certain that this is what he wanted to do. At SSU he met, soon to be known as fellow UCE group members, Osiris, Cuevooo and Eddie Bunyan during a freestyle session. Bastien lyrics represent what he has seen throughout his life, difference, versatility and diversity.
