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. He 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 describes him as a helicopter parent who was very controlling of Eric and the rest of his family. Examples include 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.
